Samsung delayed the launch of its first Tizen OS-powered smartphone for quite a few times, but the Z1 eventually came out, and it can be purchased on various markets across the globe. Unfortunately, it looks like there will not be a Samsung Z2 to follow it. The good news is that a new Tizen phone is in the works, but its name will be Z3.

In an exclusive report published by SamMobile, insiders familiar with the matter confirmed that Z3 is the next-gen Tizen OS-loaded Samsung handset and its model number is SM-Z300H_SWA_DD. Just like its predecessor, its specs and features will probably place it in the low-end area of the market. The Samsung Z1 has a modest dual-core Spreadtrum processor, just 512 MB of memory, a 3.2 MP rear camera and a 4-inch display with 480X800 pixels.

Samsung Z3 should come out loaded with Tizen 3.0, a new version of this mobile OS with a few new features and heavily focused on the Internet of Things. Samsung did not confirm anything yet, but most chances are to see the Z3 unveiled at the company's upcoming developer conference in India that takes place at the end of July.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
