Rumour has it that Samsung's Z2 is the next Tizen phone

Just how far can Samsung go with this OS?

The current buzz is that Samsung is currently working hard on a successor for the Samsung Z1 smartphone using Tizen OS.

The Samsung Z2 will apparently be fitted with a qHD TFT-LCD Display, a strong 32-bit quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and a 2000mAh battery.

As to the release date, it's likely we'll see the phone in the first half of this year complete with the new Tizen 3.0 UI.

On a side note, Samsung is also working on a global Tizen smartphone, which will be sold in key strategic markets such as Korea, China, United States, EU and a few others. The Tizen smartphone is rumoured to feature a 4.8in 720p display, 2GB of RAM, an 8MP main camera and a 2600mAh battery.

Samsung’s Z1 has been doing reasonably well in the market especially in Bangladesh and India, but we'll have to see if Tizen will be a success elsewhere.
