The Samsung Z runs Tizen v2.2.1 on a 2.3GHz quad-core processor. It has a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera, a fingerprint sensor and 16GB of expandable memory.

A launch in Russia is planned for Q3 2013, followed by other markets that haven’t yet been confirmed. Delegates at the Tizen Developer Conference in San Francisco will be able to see the handset this week.

DJ Lee, President of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business, said “Samsung is committed to enhancing the mobile experience of consumers with innovation that is both personal and unique to their needs. The Samsung Z integrates the power and adaptability of the Tizen platform, enabling users to browse the web faster and utilize applications more effectively.”
