Samsung Z2 gets WiFi calling

Samsung Z2 Tizen smartphone with 4G now gets WiFi calling via software update
Samsung Z2
Samsung has just added WiFi calling to the features of this first 4G LTE Tizen handset via a software update. The 50 MB firmware also comes with improved Panic mode and updated security.

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, 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.
