Samsung has launched the much-awaited Samsung Z2 smartphone in India at Rs. 4590 in Black, Wine Red, and Gold Colour variants. The company is offering free Reliance Jio 4G connectivity with this handset.
Samsung Z2 is the first 4G-enabled device which runs on Samsung’s latest Tizen operating system. In addition to VoLTE support and HD voice calling support, the smartphone ships with a dedicated S bike mode. It enables you to ride the bike safely. When activated, the caller gets an automated message stating that the other party is on the ride. Samsung has specially designed the feature based on safety concerns of two-wheeler users in India. The device also provides support for LTE Cat.4 with downloads up to 150Mbps and upload up to 50Mbps.
Responding to media on the sidelines of the launch, Manu Sharma, Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung India Electronics disclosed that the device offers a simplified approach to 4G. Sharma said that the new device will be useful for people who require a budget handset with all the latest features.
Display and Performance
Samsung Z2 features a 4-inch WVGA (480×800 pixels) display. The device offers a 1.5GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. Even though the Z2 is equipped with 8GB of internal storage, you can expand the memory to up to 128GB via microSD card.
Talking about the camera segment, the Samsung Z2 ships with a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash paired with a 0.3-megapixel VGA front-facing snapper. The lack of a quality front camera is disappointing. The device gets the power from a 1500mAh battery, which has an ability to deliver up to 8 hours of 4G browsing.
Samsung Z2 ships with the latest Tizen OS v2.4. It includes a smart tutor app with a personal assistant including the ability to unlock phones using gesture unlock. You can swipe upwards to switch between apps.
The Ultra Data Saving Mode integrated into Samsung Z2 helps you to save up to 40 percent of data.
Free offer and Availability
Samsung Z2 comes with free Reliance Jio 4G Preview offer in addition to access to Reliance Jio services such as Jio Beats, Jio On Demand, and My Jio. The device will be exclusively available from Paytm on August 20 at Rs. 4590.
Samsung Z2 will be very useful if you require a simple device with basic features. The device will be useful for students and senior citizens.
