Samsung considering a Z2
Samsung's Tizen-powered Z1 has been making the rounds in India for a month now (it got officially launched on January 14), but Samsung reportedly is already considering it a success - some 100,00 units of this sub-$100 phone have reportedly found their way from the shelves to consumers' pockets.

If rumors are to be believed, a second generation of the Tizen-powered Samsung Z1 is reportedly in the works. What's interesting is that various sources claim we might not need to wait long for such a device.

Industry sources close to Samsung have reported that the Samsung Z2 (which is the speculated and logical name for the handset) is coming sometime in the indefinite future with better specs. Among these, a display with a slightly better resolution is expected to make an appearance - the Samsung Z1 comes with a 4-inch one with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, but its second generation might be upping the latter measurements to 540 x 960 pixels.

Speaking of the Samsung Z1, it comes with a dual-core Spreadtrum SC7727S chipset clocked at 1.2GHz, 768MB of RAM, a 1,500mAh battery at the back and a 3.1 rear-positioned shooter. Samsung's Tizen is the OS of choice. All of this, as we said above, sells for roughly $91.
