Unfortunately, the company did not reveal anything new about the release date of the Samsung Z smartphone, as it seems they think Tizen OS is not ready for a public release yet.

After the latest delay of the first handset powered by Samsung's Tizen OS, which was expected to launch in Russia later this month, everyone expects information about the anticipated release date of the device. Unfortunately, the latest reports show that Samsung Z is on hold for an indefinite period of time.

Samsung representatives issued a statement yesterday which reveals that sales of the first smartphone to use their own Tizen OS will be delayed due to various reasons. These reasons include the fact that "more time is needed to expand Tizen’s following of app developers and apps" or, as they also say, "to further enhance the Tizen “ecosystem,” which encompasses developers, consumers and devices."

In the end, the South Korean giant only wishes to launch the Samsung Z when a lot of apps are already available for it and plenty of developers are already involved in developing more as the market demands. Since this seems to take more time than expected, they did not announce a new release date yet.
