After years of being in the dark, Tizen is about to step out into the light on Samsung's upcoming Z1 smartphone. The Samsung Z1 will be launching next month, with rumors pegging the Z1 to be released on January 18, 2015.
Earlier in the year we heard about the Samsung Z, which was meant to be a high-end handset featuring Tizen. This handset was thrown out at the last minute, with the company reiterating that it wanted to make sure its first Tizen-powered smartphone had a good array of applications available before it launched.
Samsung's Z1 smartphone will be a mid-range handset, featuring a 4-inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, dual-SIM capabilities, and a 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera.
