Samsung indefinitely postpones launch of Tizen-powered Samsung Z
It’ll be a bit longer before we see a Samsung phone running Tizen OS.
Samsung announced it is delaying sales of the Samsung Z smartphone, the company’s first device running Tizen, the rival mobile platform to Android and iOS. Samsung canceled a developer conference in Russia where the device was set for launch, saying the postponement is due to “further enhancement of the Tizen ecosystem.”
