If you haven't heard it before, Samsung has been working on an interesting project of theirs for a while now. I'm talking about their own mobile operating system TIZEN. This one is still based on Android, as this is an open source project, but has Samsung property inside it, instead of Google's.Meanwhile, Samsung decided to launch their first smartphone to officially use Tizen and they called it Samsung Z. From June 3rd, Samsung Z is available to see at the Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco.Samsung markets this device as a premium device with an extremely high quality and latest Samsung technology. Tizen is said to be the solution for people that want to experience a new user interface with the same premium features. DJ Lee, President and Head of Global Sales & Marketing Office, Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics said:
“Samsung is committed to enhancing the mobile experience of consumers with innovation that is both personal and unique to their needs”
The features that Samsung Z is based on are, as Samsung states: improved memory management, a much faster start-up time, faster responding multi-tasking, full support for 2D and 3D graphics, a smoother experience and an already mainstream fingerprint sensor.The user interface is different from Android, but at the same time has similarities, as Tizen is derived from Android. As for design, it is slightly slimmer and sports a new kind of feel, while still aligning with Samsung's much famous design from the Galaxy line of devices.Samsung Z will be available in Rusia in Q3. It will also be available in other regions a while after that. Take a look at a gallery of photos with the new Samsung Z:Samsung Z specifications:Samsung_Z_Specifications
