Samsung Z is the World's First Smartphone Powered by Tizen OS

Many of us do know that Samsung has been developing its own mobile operating system called Tizen which will eventually be launched and compete with Google's Android, Apple's iOS and Microsoft's Windows Phone operating systems. Well that day has arrived as Samsung has officially announced the world's first Samsung smartphone running Tizen OS, meet the Samsung Z. Read on to see what this Tizen-powered has in store for us.

The Samsung Z offers a new look or design compared to the most Samsung Galaxy smartphones out there even though it reminds me of LG smartphones everytime I look at it. Unlike many of the first versions of every platform, the Samsung Z is equipped with high-end specs. On the front side there is a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED Display with 1280x720 resolution, good thing it's an HD one and not anything below that configuration. It is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz, it is not fully revealed yet but many suggests that it would be a Snapdragon 800 chip.

Like the Galaxy S5, Samsung Z is also built with fingerprint sensor on the home button. There is also a heart sensor function on the device. Other features such as Download Booster which lets the smartphone download using both the LTE and WiFi connection at the same time, Ultra Power Saving Mode, S Health and many others. Samsung plan to release the phone starting in the third quarter of the year. The Samsung Z will be shown at a Tizen developer conference in San Francisco this week.
