Tizen it great? Samsung Z2 visits the FCC heralding possible U.S. launch of the handset

The Tizen powered Samsung Z2 has been available in certain markets since last August. Now, a new variant of the phone appears to be coming to the U.S. as model number SM-Z200M has been certified by the FCC. A dual SIM version of the device with the model number SM-Z200M/DS recently received its Wi-Fi certification. If the Z2 is indeed heading to the U.S., there could be some changes made to the original version of the phone. 

The current Samsung Z2 handset features a 4-inch screen carrying a 480 x 800 (WVGA) resolution. Under the hood is a Spreadtrum SC9830 chipset with a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU. 1GB of RAM is inside along with 8GB of native storage. A 128GB microSD slot is available for those requiring additional storage. The 5MP rear-facing camera comes with an aperture of f/2.2, and a front-facing .3MP VGA snapper handles selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 1500mAh battery and Tizen 2.4 is pre-installed.

As usual, the FCC documentation doesn't give us much information outside of where the agency's sticker is going to be found. With this news out, we have our ears to the ground trying to hear any word about a possible stateside launch of the Samsung Z2. As soon as we hear anything, we will pass it along to you.
