Now, According to shipping Information in India, Samsung have started Importing more parts to assemble their next Tizen smartphone, the Samsung Z2. Most likely it will be being put together at Samsung’s Noida assembly plant. Our sources have confirmed that we are possibly looking at an October 2016 release date.
The device was initially going to release in 2015 but then hit a delay. Earlier this year our sources did confirm that the Z2 was indeed going to be released this year, and now have updated us to an October timeframe.
This is an Important device for Samsung, their first 4G / LTE device, and could feature a new user Interface but will not ship with Tizen 3.0 as many expect.

The next milestone along the release path / journey will be for the Smartphone to pass FCC approval.
