Samsung revealed on Monday that it will be pushing back the launch date of its Tizen-based Samsung Z phone in Russia.
“To further enhance the Tizen ecosystem, Samsung plans to postpone the launch of Samsung Z in Russia. Samsung will continue to actively work with Tizen Association members pursuing to further develop both Tizen OS and the Tizen ecosystem.”
Originally announced earlier this year in San Francisco, the Samsung Z was supposed to make an appearance at a Tizen developers conference in Russia. Unfortunately, Samsung was only able to present prototypes.
At this rate, Russia might have to wait until next year for the launch of the smartphone, according to technology analyst Eldar Murtazin.
