"no chance" of becoming a success, the platform cannot seem to escape negativity. But nevertheless, the Z3 is said to be en route to market.Apparently launching in the second half of this year, the Samsung Z3 will be more powerful than the original Z1, and run on the Tizen OS. Samsung appears undeterred in its efforts to develop and enhance the reach of the Tizen OS, despite various industry snipes that the operating system is a non-starter. From consumers and analysts to Huawei's CEO of the Consumer BG, who has said that Tizen has
According to the folks at Tizen Experts, the device will include a quad-core, 64-bit processor along with a 5-inch display. The 5-megapixel main shooter may be accompanied by an equally-modest 2-megapixel front-facing snapper, and the device may be kept ticking over by a 2000 mAh battery.
The reason why Samsung is keen to persevere with Tizen, it seems, goes beyond the smartphone industry. The company wants its platform to integrate with all of its products, including TVs, smartwatches, and eventually, smart home gadgets as the market for the Internet of Things evolves.
Whether the company is swimming upstream in this endeavor remains to be seen, but what does seem likely is that the Z3 Tizen smartphone will be headed to market over the next few months. The specs are by no means definite, and there are no details on pricing and availability as yet, but when this info does emerge, we'll have it covered right here.

tizen is pretty much touchwiz without android. if they really want people to move to tizen its ui should be a little different. meego was pretty popular and if tizen adopted its system it would garner more followers.

The reason why Samsung insist to keep developing the Tizen was basically boil down to one important factor: Control. Having a homebrew OS mean that you have total control for every single part of the OS, with Android, Samsung can't do that. Thus it is interesting to see how Samsung will continue to develop the Tizen platform, but first hopefully they could add more apps to their store.

Joey_sfb I got my Gear 2 last March, although not quite 15 months old, its still in perfect condition and runs as sweet as a nut, I wear it everyday, including night time for tracking my sleep, I only take it off for a shower, I now kill Bluetooth whilst I'm sleeping and can get 8 days on 1 charge, so please tell me the point of your statement?
