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.

"Tizen it great" bwahahahahahaha I see what you did there. Funny guy. I haven't been here in a while... just wanted to let you know I got a chuckle. (Actually... I was coming in hot to grill you over a perceived grammatical faux pas, then I got the joke.)

4" smartphone with a 800x480 resolution...? So, does this thing has a 15:9 aspect ratio...? Just like my Lumia 430...? Anyhow, if Samsung push this phone for $50 then it might actually fly...! But chances are rather slim... I'm not too hopeful about The Tizen... Oh well, G'Day!

Which is so higly unlikely due to materials, manufacturing process and shipping. It would be fun to play around on this OS. I have not heard of it until now.

Tizan is not that good & lacks developers & unless that changes it will never go main stream.

"These specs are potato. " Because it's a budget phone, meant for those who can't afford flagships.
