The Samsung Z, announced earlier this week, is Samsung’s first Tizen powered smartphone. Here’s a closer look at Samsung’s spin on the Android OS.
Tizen has a lot of benefits and cool features, so we are naturally uneasy by it. The inconvenient truth is that it probably won’t make a dent in your Android life. Tizen simply isn’t built for dominance, or really even competition, for most of us.

While some of the pre-launch gossip was spot on (Exynos 4412 quad-core processor), some was, as expected, way off-base (2GB RAM). One rumor that had us all excited was the possibility that the Samsung Galaxy S3 would feature a Super AMOLED HD Plus display using the RGB matrix.
