Samsung finally unveils world’s first Tizen smartphone

Samsung finally lifted the veil on the world’s first Tizen smartphone, the Samsung Z, and is showcasing it at this week’s Tizen Developer Conference. In its announcement of the Tizen Z, Samsung described it as being “built on top of unparalleled quality and the cutting-edge technology of Samsung’s latest premium smartphone.” Despite the rhetoric, the Z’s specs aren’t particularly spectacular — yet it still earns high marks for chutzpah, being the first smartphone to venture down the untrodden Tizen smartphone path.
