Samsung's first Tizen-based smartphone may be released in November (it won't be the Samsung Z)
According to The Economic Times, a Samsung official confirmed that the company is planning to release a Tizen handset in India this November. While there are no details about the device itself, this may be the Samsung SM-Z130 - which could cost around $200 unlocked (thus, we’re expecting it to offer pretty modest features).
Reportedly, Tarun Malik, director of Samsung’s media solutions center for South West Asia, said that Tizen smartphones would coexist with Android handsets - but that shouldn’t surprise anyone.
Lately, Samsung’s leading position in the Indian smartphone market is being seriously threatened by local manufacturers - who offer handsets at very competitive prices. The recent release of Android One (with three smartphones made in India and priced at around $110) represents even more bad news for Samsung. Anyway, we assume that India won’t be the only market where Samsung is planning to sell Tizen smartphones. But we’ll see about that.
