We've been following the launch of the Samsung Z2 closely, as you would expect from Tizen Experts, and we knew that Kenya was the next market to be graced by the Z2 and its 4G capabilities. Well it looks like today is the day as Samsung has been sending out Press Invites for the event over the last few days.
We do not have many details of the event itself at the moment, but the launch price is thought to be around the Ksh 6,000 mark. The Samsung Z2 is the first Tizen smartphone to reach Kenya and has already been launched in Indonesia, Nepal, India and South Africa. Now, the next target market for the Z2 looks like Nigeria on the MTN Network.
The Z2 has a 4-inch WVGA HD display, with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. Other specs include a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage which is expandable via a Micro SD card, a 1,500mAh battery, and 4G LTE support. There is also a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and a VGA camera front facing camera. The device has a small'ish battery, but users should not be put off by that as this is a Tizen based smartphone and therefore offers exceptional battery life.
