With Firefox OS buried after a very short life and no other mobile operating system targeting low-cost handsets, Tizen OS should do well. Unfortunately, handsets powered by it can only be found on a limited number of markets. However, Samsung seems far from dropping this system and has just unleashed the first 4G Tizen-powered handset, the long-awaited Z2.

Cheaper than its two predecessors, the Samsung Z2 features dual-SIM and 4G connectivity, as well as a 4-inch WVGA display, a quad-core processor, 1 GB of memory and 8 GB of internal storage. The main camera only offers 5 MP, the front one is a VGA image snapper, and the battery has a capacity of 1,500 mAh. Nothing out of the low-end area of the market, but more than enough to get for less than $70 USD.

Thanks to an agreement signed by Samsung and Reliance Jio, Indian customers get free voice and data, as well as free access to Jio media apps over a trial period. Samsung Z2 comes in gold, black, and wine red colors and will hit the Indian market on August 29th. There is no information on a possible international release at this time, so we can only hope that this affordable 4G handset reaches other areas later this year 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.
