Tizen-based Samsung Z2 to be officially announced

Samsung logoMore than one year after releasing the Tizen-based Z1 smartphone, Samsung is now finally ready to announce a successor to it, aptly called Samsung Z2. The Z2 will most likely be officially presented next week, on August 23, during an event held in India.

As you can see on the invitation pictured below, on August 23, Samsung India will unveil a brand new smartphone representing its "next meaningful innovation." The name of the upcoming handset isn't specifically mentioned, but, since this is definitely a Tizen event, we're pretty sure that it'll be the Z2.

We already know a lot about the Samsung Z2, thanks to various leaked details, videos, and images. Like the Z1 before it, the Z2 will be a cheap smartphone with entry-level features. The handset will sport a 4-inch AMOLED display with 480 x 800 pixels, being powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. Also on board should be LTE connectivity, a 5 MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable storage space.

The Z2 will be Samsung's third Tizen smartphone, as the company also has the Z3 - a larger, 5-inch handset released in select markets in the second half of 2015.

Right now, we don't know if Samsung is planning to bring any of its Tizen phones to North America. Until we find out more about this, you can take a peek at the upcoming Samsung Z2 in the video embedded below.
