Samsung back in January last year launched its first Tizen-based smartphone, the Z1, in India. In October, it launched its successor - the Samsung Z3. Now, if rumours are to be believed, the company is gearing to launch the next smartphone in the series, said to be called the Samsung Z2.
According to a report citing insiders at Samsung India's Promoter Trainer, the Samsung Z2 will be will be unveiled alongside the Galaxy Note 7, which is set to launch in India on Thursday. Adding further, the report suggests that the Samsung Z2 will feature Reliance Jio 4G preview offer which will include free unlimited downloads as well as voice calls as well.
The report claims that the Z2 Tizen smartphone will be priced at Rs. 4,499 and will come with a 4.5-inch display, 2000mAh battery, 1GB of RAM, dual-SIM support, and 4G with VoLTE support.
This comes as no surprise as the company has previously hinted that it may launch more Tizen-based smartphones.
Samsung India even before the Galaxy Note 7 was officially unveiled started teasing the India launch of the phablet. The company started sending early media invites for an event on Thursday in New Delhi where it is widely expected to reveal the new Note 7.
