Tizen-based Samsung Z3 to be launched in more markets this year

Samsung logoReleased in October in India, the Samsung Z3 will soon be available in more markets around the world. According to DigiTimes, Samsung wants to launch the handset in "early 2016" (which is about now) in Russia. After that, the smartphone should be released in over 10 European markets, as well as in Indonesia.

As some of you may know, the Z3 is one of Samsung's few smartphones that's not included in the Galaxy family. That's because, instead of running Android, the Z3 runs Tizen OS - an operating system that, for now, only Samsung is using (probably because it's its main backer).

Succeeding the low-end Samsung Z1 (which is also based on Tizen), the Z3 is itself a pretty modest device - this being obvious if we look at its quad-core 1.3 GHz Spreadtrum processor, its 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, or the internal memory of just 8 GB. You can find out more about the smartphone by checking out our Samsung Z3 specs page.

Samsung didn't say if its planning to launch the Z3 in North America, but we'll let you know if we hear anything about this. At the moment, the Samsung Z3 costs around $125 (unlocked). Would you buy one?
