Tizen-powered Samsung Z ditched because it’s bad business?
Samsung is filled with so many things right now that looking for apps for a new OS looks like waste of time; that’s what a Tizen-focused blog titled TizenExperts wants us to believe.
Samsung has been using Tizen on some wearables in the past but selling an empty smartphone with very little number of apps is something the Korean phone maker wants to avoid.
The Samsung Z isn’t a bad device per specifications and features. The device was announced with a 4.8″ HD display, 16GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 800 processor and a 2600mAh battery.
Something in the design language of the Z screams that the phone was designed to be the iPhone 6 killer, but with the app availability problems, Samsung had to quickly make a Galaxy Alpha smartphone with almost the same specs as the Z, but with the company’s choice Android OS.
