It was big news when Samsung announced its next smartphone model, the Samsung Z, would run the Tizen OS instead of Android. Now, Samsung has said that the Z’s release date has been delayed, with no information as to when it will hit the market.
The smartphone was originally supposed to be rolled in Russia in the third quarter of this year, but Samsung said in a statement that it needs time to “enhance the Tizen ecosystem.” Meaning, the company is likely increasing the number of apps running on the OS. Neither Samsung nor Tizen has commented on their plans for the device.
The Samsung Z features a 4.8-in. HD display device and a 2.3 GHz Quad-core application processor. It also has 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD slot to support up to 64GB of additional storage.
