Samsung has been relishing the success of J Series in the Indian market and is currently leading the smartphone market. Today, the Korean company took the wraps off their latest budget offering the Samsung Z2. As one might have noticed the Z2 is powered by Samsung’s very own Tizen OS and the best part of the deal is that it retails for just Rs 4,590.
To begin with, a quick look at the device will reassure you that the Z2, unlike similarly priced competitors, is devoid of any cost cutting measures, especially on the outside. The knurled texture on the back panel in fact looks premium and offers the necessary grip. The Samsung Z2 comes fitted with a 4-inch WVGA display and draws its power from the 1.5GHz quad-core processor mated with a 1GB RAM. On the storage front, the device offers 8GB of Internal memory which is expandable up to 256GB, thanks to the microSD card slot.
The Z2 features a 5-Megapixel primary sensor with LED flash and a basic VGA sensor for the front facing camera. However, the camera app boasts of tools like Beauty Face, Fast Motion, Interval Shot, Panorama and wide selfie. The Z2 is also fully equipped on the connectivity front and it not only offers 4G LTE but also VoLTE. The device will be bundled with the Reliance Jio preview offer and to be frank the Samsung Z2 seems to be a better bet as opposed to the budget LYF phones. The Samsung Z2 is backed by a modest 1,500mAh battery and runs on the latest version of Tizen. Just to make things better the Samsung Z2 will also come with the S Bike Mode and the Ultra data Saving feature.
It is very likely that Samsung wants to push its Tizen OS with the help of budget handsets like the Z2. At this price point, it is very likely that the buyer won’t mind the Tizen OS and instead will focus on the other features it has to offer. The Samsung Z2 can be purchased through the offline stores and also on PayTM.
