The Samsung Z is the world's first Tizen smartphone

Pre-empting Apple's main event, Samsung unveils its first Tizen-based smartphone today without much funfair. Simply dubbed as the Samsung Z, the phone will be showcased at the Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco on June 3.

The Samsung Z has a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display with a 1280 x 720 screen resolution. Powering the device is a 2.3GHz quad-core processor (prolly a Snapdragon 800 SoC), a 2GB RAM, and up to 64GB of internal memory.

Dimensions are 138.2 x 69.8 x 8.5mm and it tips the scales at 136g. Furthermore, the Samsung Z has an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 2.1-megapixel shooter on the front.

Other features include LTE Cat 4 support, a 2600mAh battery, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, USB 2.0, IR Remote, and the nifty fingerprint scanner first introduced by Samsung in its Galaxy S5 phablet.

"Value-added features" include Ultra Power Saving Mode, Download Booster, and S Health version 3.0.

According to Samsung's press release, the Samsung Z will hit Russia first in the third quarter of 2014. Fortunately, Samsung is planning to launch the phone in other markets in the future.

We have yet to witness Samsung's Tizen OS at work. But Samsung's DJ Lee said that its Tizen platform will allow users to utilize applications more effectively. The company is also planning to host Tizen app challenges in Russia to improve its young Tizen eco-system.

“Samsung is committed to enhancing the mobile experience of consumers with innovation that is both personal and unique to their needs,” said DJ Lee, President and Head of Global Sales & Marketing Office, Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “The Samsung Z integrates the power and adaptability of the Tizen platform, enabling users to browse the web faster and utilize applications more effectively.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
