South Korean tech firm Samsung unveiled the Samsung Z, the first ever Samsung device that runs on the open source Tizen operating system. Unlike the popular Galaxy series, the Samsung Z does not run Android but instead works on Tizen.

The Samsung Z is powered by a 2.3 GHz quad core CPU with 2 GB of RAM and either 16 GB or 32 GB of storage. A microSD card slot allows storage capacity to be expanded to up to 64 GB. The phone runs on a 2,600 mAh battery.

The phone also features 8 MP and 2.1 MP cameras on the rear and front respectively. It is also equipped with a range of sensors including an accelerometer, gyroscope, fingerprint scanner and heart rate sensor.
