Samsung’s naming monikers are all over the place. It launched the Tizen-powered Samsung Z2 smartphone, followed by the Samsung Z3 (pictured above), but fresh rumors suggest a Samsung Z2 is on the way soon. This, of course, is in the wake of reports that Samsung will skip the Galaxy Note 6 moniker moving right to the Galaxy Note 7 this year.

Who’s in charge of these things over there?


In any case, Priceraja recently noticed that Samsung’s Tizen-powered Samsung Z2, which has been rumored for a few months now, recently received Wi-Fi certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance.

This fact itself is no big deal, but it does suggest that the phone is jumping through the required hoops as it makes its way to the market, which just adds to the evidence that a new Tizen smartphone is on the way. Priceraja said we can expect Tizen 3.0, a quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 2000mAh battery, and a 4.2-inch qHD display (not to be mistaken with Quad HD.

Don’t expect to see the Z2 launch in the U.S. Samsung has reserved its Tizen devices for emerging smartphone markets, such as India, where Priceraja said earlier devices have been “really successful.”
