Last summer, Samsung announced the high-spec Samsung Z, which it described as “the first commercially available smartphone powered by the Tizen platform”. However, the launch was postponed and the phone’s release apparently cancelled in favour of a focus on lower-spec devices.
Samsung has now announced a new Tizen smartphone: the Samsung Z1.
UK communications regulator Ofcom has confirmed its plans to make more radio spectrum available for mobile broadband services.
Following a recent consultation it now aims to release part of the 700MHz frequency band to mobile network operators.
