TechDissected says: It is no secret that Samsung has been trying to break free of the Android ecosystem for quite some time. While the Samsung Z may be the first Tizen smartphone, Samsung has already released the Tizen-based Galaxy Gear 2 apart from updating the original Galaxy Gear to run Tizen instead of Android. Samsung also announced Tizen-based Smart TVs this month, planning to put them on sale later this year.
Samsung Z is slated to launch in Russia first before expanding to other markets. Samsung has given a fairly broad Q3 time-frame for the launch, and is believed to be ramping up developer campaigns for native Tizen apps in the meantime.
