When it comes to rumors of smartphones, there are plenty to go around especially when you take into consideration the number of players that are in the market. The latest round of rumors involve Samsung of South Korea, where they are tipped to be working on a Tizen-based Z2, as well as – get this, a global Tizen smartphone.
Samsung must have been smitten by the kind of success that they met with the Samsung Z1 in India and Bangladesh, two countries with huge populations, and it seems that this has spurred the company to deliver new Tizen-based smartphones. One of those is said to be the Samsung Z2, which will take over the aforementioned device, while the other is touted to be a global Tizen smartphone that will sport a higher level of hardware specifications.
Whispers claim that the Samsung Z2 will feature some notable improvements over its predecessor, including a 32-bit quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, a TFT-LCD display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, and a 2,000mAh battery. Expect to see new Tizen 3.0 UI accompany it, but other than that, additional details are scant.
The other global Tizen handset is tipped to make its way to the US, China, South Korea, Russia, India, Malaysia, South Asia, and selected countries in Europe, where it will sport mid-range hardware including a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display, 2GB RAM, an 8MP shooter at the back and a 2,600 mAh battery.
