Samsung Launches Tizen software (OS) for Samsung Z smartphone
Tizen is the platform for Samsung’s Gear 2 smartwatch launched in February, but the Samsung Z will be the first phone to use the operating system.
The Samsung Z is the first Tizen smartphone by the Korean electronic company – this is the first time that the telecom giant has not used Google’s Android as its OS.
Samsung has provided consumers with a choice of mobile phone software beyond the dominant Google Android and Apple iOS operating systems.
