Tizen 3.0 has been spotted in the wild last autumn, but Samsung Z2 seems stuck with version 2.4 for the time being. However, this handset has just received a major feature that was missing, namely WiFi calling. Apart from that, the new firmware does not come with any surprises.

According to Tizen Experts, the new firmware update is version BQA2 (Z200FDDU0BQA2), based on Tizen 2.4.0.6, and weighs only 27.4 MB. Depending on the existing software version, the download can also reach 50.7 MB, but the new features remain the same - WiFi calling (only over the Reliance Jio network, India's only pure LTE carrier), improved sending of SOS messages (Panic mode), as well as enhanced security.

The update should reach other markets soon, but we have no official information about it. On the other hands, with Android One devices targeting the US market now, it would be interesting to see Tizen-driven handsets arriving on US soil as well.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
