Well, it looks like Samsung finally managed to do what it has been trying to do for a painfully long time – the Korean manufacturer has made its first Tizen-powered phone official. Called the Samsung Z, the phone features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display of 1280×720 resolution and is powered a quad-core 2.3GHz processor (most like a Snapdragon 800), and runs on version 2.2.1 of Tizen. The Z comes with a new look that should come as a breath of fresh air for those who have gotten bored of Samsung’s design language on Android devices (let’s face it, who hasn’t?), though the overall design seems to be along the same lines as the company’s previous efforts.
I want one of these, like, right now. Not only is it an alternative operating system backed by a huge player, it’s also very likely to become a rarity a few years down the line. A great and fascinating addition to my collection.
