Finally Samsung launches their first smartphone to run in Tizen operating system, the Samsung Z1, in India. The much awaited Tizen series of smartphone from Samsung has made its first appearance. The compact 4 inch WVGA PLS display screen Z1 is priced at Rs. 5,700 in India. Z1 is packed with a 3.1 MP primary camera with LED flash and a front facing VGA secondary camera. The phone runs on a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with a RAM capacity of 768MB and an internal 4GB memory. An expandable memory of 64GB is available in the phone's external memory card slot.
The Samsung Z1 runs on a Tizen 2.3 operating system. Advanced multimedia options such as 3D window frame, location based service frameworks, sensor frameworks and multi-tasking and multi-touch capabilities are available in this OS. With a 1500mAh battery support, the phone is expected to give ample stand by time. But will a 1500mAh battery give ample browsing and talk time is a question to be answered. Regular options such as WiFi, Bluetooth, USB 2.0, GPS and much more features are added to the Z1.
Tizen is a Linux based operating system which stands as the rival of the well flourished Android OS. Tizen OS comes with a Tizen Store, just like the Android Store, wherin users can download apps, games and other supportive operations for the device. The Tizen OS doesn't have an in-built support system for running Android apps, therefore users would have to download an Open Mobile ACI to use Android applications. Although the phone didn't complete the expectations of the audience, it is offering an additional 500MB 3G data free for six months for its users.
On the whole the Samsung Z1 smartphone is loaded with a handful of applications and the brightest feature of all, it runs on the Tizen OS. Speculations says that the Z1 has the similar looks of the Galaxy S Duos combined with that of the Galaxy Ace from Samsung. For a great price a great device is offered by samsung but competitors provide much more facilities on its Android powered smartphones in the same price segment.
