Tizen may be popular on smartwatches, but Samsung’s lightweight OS isn’t just for your wrists as the phone maker announces a new Tizen-powered handset coming out this month.
The Samsung Z4 is a 4G LTE-capable smartphone designed to make the most out what Tizen has to offer compared to the likes of iOS and Android, such as slower battery consumption, faster switching between apps, and a potentially lower price point.
While it’s no Samsung Galaxy S8, the Z4 isn’t a slouch either, with the Tizen 3.0-powered phone sporting 1GB of RAM, 5MP front and back-facing cameras, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 2,050mAh battery. Pricing details were not announced at this time.
The Samsung Z4 is expected to launch in gold, black, and silver variants this May in select countries, starting with India. This isn’t the first time Tizen-powered phones have had limited launch regions, as the Samsung Z1 also made a similar debut starting with India in 2015.
