Samsung seem to have developed a strategy for its Tizen OS based smartphones, as most of the markets where Samsung has launched its Tizen phones, are of second tier ones which have a lot of buyers for entry level smartphones. One of the newest addition to these list of developing markets was South Africa where Samsung launched its latest Samsung Z4 smartphone. The Z4 happens to be the first smartphone to run on the latest Tizen 3.0 version of Tizen OS and hence it brings a lot of improvements over then previous Tizen 2.4 version found on devices such as the Samsung Z2 and Z3.
Now that the Z4 is getting popular in the African continent, resellers are unofficially selling it in more African nations. We recently got to know that Uganda was one of these countries where the Z4 is being sold in offline markets, so if you were around in Uganda looking for a decent entry level phone, then the Z4 could be a good option. The device features a 2.5D curved display making it look more premium for the price. It also supports 4G LTE and has VoLTE capabilities. The device also responds to essential voice commands which could only get better future updates. Do checkout our Hands-on of the Samsung Z4 to get more details about the latest Tizen smartphone.
The Z4 was first officially launched in India at a price of Rs. 5790 which translates to roughly $90 and Samsung has managed to maintain a nearly equivalent price tag in South Africa as well where it is currently selling for about $97. In Uganda, according to Mobile57, the Z4 is listed at around Ugandan Shilling 325,530 by local resellers which surprisingly is around the same $90 mark.
