The dust on the not-so-successful Tizen Z1 has barely settled, and reports about Samsung working on its successor have started making rounds.

A blog post by Tizen Indonesia says that Samsung is working on Z2, according to a  report by Times of India. Citing some source related to the matter. the report reveals that the company wants to expand its Tizen portfolio.

There is no word on the specs, features or pricing of the new device. However, it should be noted that the recent update of the Tizen SDK 2.3 introduced support for 540 x 960 qHD displays. This clearly hints at the next iteration of the device to come with a qHD display. The display in the Z1 comes with a 480 x 800 WVGA display.

Looks like, the company aims at the budget segment with its Tizen series of devices.

Lately, we’ve been hearing how Samsung’s Tizen Z1 has failed to impress Indian audiences. A new report by BusinessKorea revealed that the device has received ‘higher-than-expected’ sales volume in India, but that's just by one percent.

The Samsung Tizen Z1 sports a 4-inch 480×800 pixel display, and comes powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Spreadtrum SC7727S processor paired with 512MB of RAM. It supports 3G, dual SIM capabilities, GPS/A-GPS, GLONASS and 802.11n Wi-Fi, and runs Tizen v2.3 out of the box.
