Samsung sells 20,000 units of the Z1 in Bangladesh in a week


Last updated: February 15th, 2015 at 17:00 UTC+01:00

Samsung’s first Tizen phone seems to be raking up impressive sales for a device with a new and unproven operating system. The Z1 was launched in Bangladesh only a week ago, and Samsung has reportedly sold 20,000 units of the device since. This isn’t as impressive as the 50,000 sales figure the company achieved in India in a little over a week, but that’s not surprising considering the Indian market is larger. According to Samsung, most of the sales were because of users that were using feature phones, with the unique premium content offered with the device one of the factors that attracted consumers.

The Samsung Z1 features a 4-inch WVGA PLS display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 768MB of RAM, a 3.1-megapixel rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 4GB of expandable internal storage, dual SIM slots, and a 1,500mAh battery. The phone runs Tizen 2.3, and as we concluded in our review, offers a smartphone experience that’s better than what Samsung has offered at similar price points on Android devices.
