|Tizen-Powered Samsung Z2 Goes Official|
Samsung has been on the move to develop a mobile operating system to avert its reliance on the dominant Android platform, and that has been proven since the South Korean tech giant first unveiled its Tizen OS. While there hasn’t been much fanfare surrounding the new OS, Samsung is still adamant to push devices running on Tizen. Now, the company has just announced the next handset officially running Tizen – the Samsung Z2.
The Samsung Z2, as mentioned, runs Samsung’s Tizen OS, so the app content isn’t exactly as massive as compared to the offerings in the Android app store. On the hardware front, the Z2 features a quad-core Spreadtrum chipset that’s paired with 1GB of RAM. There’s 8GB of internal storage on-board, and its photography prowess relies on its 5MP primary shooter and VGA selfie snapper. There’s also a 1,500mAh battery rating to juice it up. It's also the first 4G-capable Tizen handphone to boot

Priced at around $68, or Php3,200 when converted to the national currency, the Samsung Z2 can be a primer for those interested in Tizen. The handset has just launched in India, but there’s no news if Samsung will plan to bring it here in the country.
