The Android rumble is very much in Samsung’s court, so now the Korean major is finally ready with its first Tizen powered smartphone called “Samsung Z” which will be first made available in the Russian market, followed by other markets which could presumably include India as well.

After lengthy delays owing to hardware and software compatibility issues, the company was said to fiddling with the idea of the ecosystem, once and for all. But with Samsung Z, the company is going ahead with consumer-end products. 

The Samsung Z packs a 2.3 GHz quad-core processor, sports a 4.9 inch Super AMOLED HD display and fully supports 2D and 3D graphics. It comes with 8 MP rear camera and 2.1 MP front camera. The phone boasts a fingerprint sensor and the ultra power saving mode which first introduced in Samsung’s Galaxy S5.

According to Samsung, Tizen would offer faster start-up time, better multitasking capabilities and faster internet browsing experience. It features easy to access layout for favorite features and apps as well as includes a “dynamic box”. Tizen OS has been developed by Samsung as an alternative to Google’s Android OS to get more control over the company’s future and rely less on Google. 

The company plans to host local Tizen challenges in Russia and other nations to boost the Tizen ecosystem. This is probably the first platform, after Mozilla’s Firefox OS which might create some excitement in the developer’s corner and by end of 2014 Tizen’s fortunes will become clearer.
