Samsung Z1 sales exceed one million units
Samsung launched the low-end Z1 smartphone back in January after countless delays. This handset is powered by a Linux-based operating system known as Tizen that already found its way into various gadgets and smart TVs. Now it looks like the Indian market received it quite well, although the figures may be sometimes misleading.
According to The Economic Times, the Indian market engulfed one million Samsung Z1 units since the handset became available, back in January. This is not a big number considering the time needed to get there, as almost 3 million smartphones up to $100 USD reach Indian customers each month. On the other hand, the sub-$100 USD market segment expanded much faster than others.
Various rumors claim that Samsung will skip the Z2 name, and the next Tizen OS-powered smartphone will be simply called Z3. We will get to it as soon as the official info comes out so stay tuned.
