It is now the norm for smartphone manufacturers to release a gold version of at least their flagship device. The color appears to attract a lot of customers which is why almost every other major manufacturer has gone down this road, even Apple. Samsung happens to be one of those manufacturers as well and recently a gold version of the Samsung Z smartphone was spotted. The Z is the company’s first Tizen OS powered smartphone.
Photos of this gold Samsung Z were taken at the Tizen Developer Summit in Russia. The company didn’t announce at the event if its going to offer the smartphone in this color, it didn’t even mention this when this smartphone was first unveiled.
So it remains to be seen if the gold Samsung Z will ever go on sale. That also depends on the Z ever being released. Samsung announced at the Tizen Developer Summit in Russia that it is delaying the launch of the Z, and it is unclear right now when the company intends on finally shipping out this smartphone.
The Samsung Z has a 4.8-inch 720p display, a 2.3GHz quadcore processor with 2GB RAM, 16GB of onboard storage and an 8 megapixel rear camera. Its really no powerhouse but then again its really not competing with anything else in the market right now. The aim here is get people acquainted with Tizen and perhaps maybe then Samsung would think about carving out a bigger slice of the market for its homegrown OS.
