Samsung is having troubles launching Tizen, meanwhile, OnePlus is busy debunking rumors and the LG G3 Cat.6 has been leaked.
Samsung’s repeated delays on Tizen OS smartphones is making us believe they are not quite ready to make the jump just yet. After expecting its launch in a Developer event in Moscow, the Samsung Z has been delayed once again. This time we have no expected release dates or windows, so who knows when we will see Tizen-clad smartphones hit the market.
Samsung did mention the device would come to Russia in a “later date”, though. The idea is to launch once all important applications are ready to go.
Opinion: Launching a new platform can be a bit hard. Samsung is simply trying to be careful about the way they take Tizen OS to the market, which is to be expected. Constant delays don’t look good, though.
Yesterday’s leak on the OnePlus Two turned out to be a fake, if the manufacturer itself is to be believed. This leak didn’t give us much details, only that the OnePlus One’s successor would be code named “Lettuce”. Here’s what OnePlus had to say:
“We’re just working on the OnePlus One for 2014. Thanks!”
OnePlus also told us the OnePlus Tab wasn’t quite real, albeit with a similarly vague comment. It really seems like OnePlus may be focusing on the high-end smartphone for now. After all, it’s a great device and doesn’t need a successor just yet.
Opinion: It’s your usual press comment, but it does leave a little room for speculation by mentioning “for 2014”.
Not enough LG G3 iterations yet? Here’s another one. The LG G3 Cat. 6 comes from a Korean advertising. This is a bit odd, as such device hasn’t been announced by the manufacturer, so we are getting a nice peek at what’s coming.
No details are given, but we can expect this device to carry a better processor – one that supports Cat. 6 LTE speeds. The Snapdragon 805 could be an option. Aside form the faster speeds, we do expect this phone to stay true to its G3 nature in terms of specs.
Opinion: This is not a huge upgrade, but it may make a difference for those who really care about faster LTE speeds. Who knows, though. Maybe Samsung will surprise us with some other improvements.
