South Korean manufacturer celebrates its 1 millionth sale with new color options for the Z1 Tizen.

The Z1 Tizen launched later than Samsung had anticipated and had a difficult start in India. Nonetheless, the smartphone has been selling quite well.

VP of Samsung Marketing at India Asim Warsi has revealed that the manufacturer has sold one million Z1 Tizen smartphones in less than six months. The smartphone is notable for its inexpensive price and Tizen OS instead of Android. Samsung is now planning more models and even color variations of existing models such as Gold.

The Z1 Tizen launched earlier this year on January 14th for the Indian market. Additional regions like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh followed closely. According to a May report from market analysts Counterpoint, the Z1 Tizen was the best-selling smartphone in Q1 2015 for the Bangladesh market. The smartphone retails for just 5000 Rupees, or roughly 70 Euros.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
