Samsung's Tizen running Z3 set for wider release

Samsung is readying its OS for a first foray into a wider market as the company’s Z3 Tizen smartphone is set to release in Europe this quarter.

If smartphone operating systems were a gambling ring, Samsung’s Tizen OS would be a dark horse: the company is set to introduce their Z3 Tizen handset to the European market this quarter.
According to PocketNow, the Z3 Tizen’s expansion into Europe could begin in the first quarter of 2016, with the device aimed at 10 markets across the continent – paving the way for a larger introduction of the Samsung’s own operating system.

In addition to the Z3 selling in both Russia and Europe, the device is also expected to launch in Indonesia.
Tizen recently grew to eclipse BlackBerry as the fourth globally ranked mobile OS, which has likely given Samsung further confidence to begin investing more heavily into the operating system.
The Z3 is expected to retail for a low $125 USD, and carries a 720p display, a quad-core 1.3Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, alongside 8 and 5 megapixel cameras.
We’ve yet to receive any indication as to whether the device will arrive within African markets.
