Samsung Z is powered by a 2.3GHz, quad-core Intel processor

We knew this moment was coming. In the past few months, Samsung has made an effort to get its in-house Tizen mobile operating system into the hands of more consumers. In late February, it tested the waters with the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches running the operating system. Just this past week, Samsung provided an update to the original Galaxy Gear smartwatch that replaced its original Android operating system with Tizen.
 
Today, Samsung is going one step further with the launch of the Samsung Z — the world first smartphone running Tizen. Although Samsung told us back in late April that its first Tizen smartphone would be a “high-end” device, its specs don’t exactly scream “flagship” like its Galaxy S 5 cousin.
 
Tizen

The Samsung Z features a 2.3GHz quad-core Intel processor with 2GB of RAM, 4.8” HD Super AMOLED (720p), 16GB of memory, microSD slot, 8MP rear camera, 2.1MP front camera, fingerprint sensor, and LTE connectivity.
 
Compared to Android, the Samsung Z is said to “[deliver] a fast, optimal performance with improved memory management” and “offers a faster startup time and immediate multi-tasking capabilities.”

 
“Samsung is committed to enhancing the mobile experience of consumers with innovation that is both personal and unique to their needs,” continued DJ Lee, Samsung’s Marketing chief. “The Samsung Z integrates the power and adaptability of the Tizen platform, enabling users to browse the web faster and utilize applications more effectively.”

 
The Samsung Z will first be made available in Russia starting in Q3 of this year, and will late expand to other markets around the world. There is no word yet on U.S. availability.

Let's put it this way: if they did it to some else's OS, who's gonna stop them from doing it to their own?

Fwiw, Tizen seems to be more open than Android (current code is available, they seem to be accepting patches), so if it takes off, we may end up with something even better.

Hopefully a full on public shaming will help. LOL

The Moto E with less than 1/4 the processing power runs, transistions and scolls faster than the GS5.
