This is not the first time we see the The Samsung Z getting delayed. It was unveiled as the First Tizen-running smartphone at the beginning of June. The new phone was supposed to make its debut in Russia earlier this month, at a developer event, but it actually went missing in action on that occasion. Samsung didn’t officially comment on the situation until today. The company abruptly canceled the aforementioned developer event in Moscow, so we all assumed the Z was delayed. And now that’s been confirmed by Samsung itself.
The Korean giant says it’s postponing the launch of its first Tizen handset in order to,
“further enhance the Tizen ecosystem“
This may be referring to a shortage of apps for the new platform. Unfortunately, the company decided not to be any more specific than that. It has, however, said countless times that it doesn’t plan on abandoning Tizen, and that it shall continue to work on smartphones running its home-grown operating system.
