Samsung has targeted the South Asian market and introduced the maiden Tizen powered 4G smartphone – Samsung Z2. The gadget was announced last week at an event in New Delhi.

The phone is primarily targeted at people who are moving away from feature phones and stepping into the Smartphone Empire. If we compare Samsung Z2 with its predecessors, we find it in between the Z1 and Z3.

The Samsung Z2 is also the third Tizen powered smartphone from Samsung being the only Tizen phone that offers 4G LTE connectivity. This is the cheapest 4G offering by a major smartphone company so far.

The Z2 follows typical Samsung design language with a home button in the middle with back and recent apps button on the left and right. The back also features the camera in the middle, and has another design similarity in common with Samsung phones with the flash on the left and the speakers on the right.

Overall the device seems to be thick in size, something you don’t see much in smartphones nowadays. The 3.5mm headphone jack is at the top, with a microUSB slot at the bottom of the phone. The Samsung Z2 comes with support for 12 regional languages and S bike mode.

Price and Release Date

Samsung Z2 will cost Rs. 4,590 in India or Rs. 7,200 in Pakistan (depending on retailers). It will come in gold, black and red wine colors, no word on when it will be available officially in Pakistan.
