There was a certain buzz around the world centering existence of an interface that could, possibly stand chance of competing with Android. In spite of the fact that we have been waiting for quite a fair bit of time, but the good news is that, the alternative is here. Samsung launched their first Tizen Smartphone on Sunday evening. The Korean smartphone producer, Samsung had been working on this project for quite some time now and with the delivery on Sunday, it is probably the time that we experience something different.
With the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) around the corner and Google gearing up to launch Android 4.4.3 Kitkat, this was probably the best time to launch this new operating system. Samsung Z is the firs smartphone that comes with Tizen and believe me when say that the device packs a punch.
Samsung Z Specifications
Firstly, let get around with the basic specification of the new smartphone, Samsung Z. For the first launch of Tizen, Samsung has effectively chosen a good background. Samsung packs its punch with the 2.3GHz quad core snapdragon processor. The other features include a 2 GB RAM, 2,600mAh battery, 16 GB internal memory with microSD card slot. Samsung Z will support 4G network and NFC as well.
Considering the fact that the specifications mentioned above are great but they are neutralized to a certain extent when we come across the other features. A distinct downsized pixel quality to 1280 x 720, an 8 MP rear camera and a 2.1 MP front camera adds a bit of backdated feeling to the smartphone. But, since this is primarily the first generation smartphone with Tizen, Samsung has played it safe.
Samsung Z with Tizen
Now speaking of the operating system, Tizen will appear very much similar to Android at the first look. But since the underlying definitions are different you will find differences as you go on exploring. Samsung Z is coming with Tizen 2.2.1 and this means that Tizen is not brand new on the scene. Since Tizen is very much similar in its functions with Android, the majority of the applications will be supported by Tizen does not have legal entry into the Google Play Store.
Samsung has previously used Tizen in various testing devices. According to the Press Release by Samsung, Tizen has gone through a lot of developments before Samsung thought that it is ready to be launched. Interestingly, the launch of Tizen might just trigger of some new conflicts between Samsung and Google. Samsung still uses Android as the interface in moist of its best-selling smartphones and other gears. We will probably have to wait for Google’s reaction in this case!
Earlier, it was reported that Samsung will be launching the Tizen smartphone in Russia and India and the launch will be held at an “unpacked” event in Moscow in the same way the company launches its flagship smartphones. Samsung had previously mentioned that it would launch its first Tizen-based by January but carrier partners in France, Japan and Spain caused the delay.
