With the Tizen-powered Z1 having sold more than 1 million units, and the company planning a Z3 (yes, skipping the Z2), the latest news out of Samsung’s native country shouldn’t surprise anyone. A source familiar with the company’s next steps says that the Z1 is only the beginning. Samsung is planning to have various price points for the Tizen-powered devices that it looks to bring to the market this year.

We only know that various price points will be entertained, but we’re sure to see mid-end and low-end budget-friendly handsets emerge. Interestingly enough, the source did not rule out a high-end Tizen-powered smartphone contender in the current market where the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Google-Motorola Nexus 6, HTC One M9, Xperia Z3 and Z4, and the LG G4 reign supreme.

Samsung is the top Android OEM in the world when it comes to mobile devices, and the company’s newest S6 and S6 edge have shown the world what Samsung can do when it listens to its customers. While Tizen is still in its early stages with most analysts having little praise for it (it’s good mostly for first-time smartphone buyers), Samsung has invested money into the OS – with Smart TVs and smartwatches, in particular, using the operating system. Even with the S6 and the S6 edge’s success, however, Samsung’s ultimate dream phone is still in the making.
