Tizen powered Samsung Z2 to become official today; handset will be priced at $68 USD

The other day, we told you to expect the Tizen powered Samsung Z2 to be unveiled today. According to a report published on Tuesday, the phone will be priced at the equivalent of $68 USD in India. Earlier this month, the Z2 was seen in Africa tagging along during the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. That was followed by the release of an official product video for the handset.

The Samsung Z2 features a 4-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 480 x 800 (WVGA). A quad-core 1.5GHz CPU is under the hood and 1GB of RAM is aboard. 8GB of expandable native storage is inside. A 5MP camera is on back, and a .3MP front-facing camera shoots selfies and handles video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 1500mAh battery. The phone supports 4G VoLTE, and has dual SIM capabilities.

The model number for the Samsung Z2 is SM-Z200F. Besides the Z series handsets, Samsung's home-grown Tizen operating system is used on the Gear S smartwatch range. The latest iteration of the wearable is expected to be unveiled August 31st at a special event held just prior to IFA in Berlin.

Better to get a Windows phone like 640 which is even cheaper

True to that, I got a Samsung Z1 for curiosity sake, first impression of it was pretty well, expect when I find out that they doesn't even have a Chinese keyboard or third party keyboard for me to download it, I guess Windows Phone would be a better choice in this situation.

I would rather just buy a Nokia feature phone for its great signal reception and long lasting battery life in term of days.
