Interesting to say the least. Tizen appears to be a rather stable os that if given proper treatment could actually be seriously competitive.
From the model number (Z930F for the Z9 vs 930F for the S7), the Z9 looks like S7 hardware with Tizen OS, which would be quite nice.
There are already good alternative mobile OSs Samsung should consider. But it is a good move by Samsung to look for an alternative OS. Today Android is on top of other OSs because of the large app market. If anyone figure out a way to bring Android apps to other OSs we will really start to have a good competition.
Android made smartphones widely available. But it also helped kill good alternative OSs and good mobile manufactures.

Anonymous, 22 Aug 2016there is no specs right now how could you say that!read it to fast, my bad. saw the specs of the maybe z2.
Wow... I am a samsung z1 user with tizen os tizen 2.4 on board... Phone works smooth like ios and battery is unbelievable it last for more than one day... Its a smooth phone like ios... Nd dont lag... Love u tizen...
Whatever, I hope Samsung ditches Android, and further develops Tizen. Nokia should start with Android, but slowly move to Sailfish. I hope AndroidSpy dies, like that there will only remain the low market share AppleSpy.

galaxyS7, 22 Aug 2016Just shut up and take my money......Will there be some way to run android apps via some compatibility layer?
I have been waiting for a loooooong time for this ... Finally Samsung doing something about it.... Thank you Samsung...
Can't wait for this. Since this device will run Samsung's own OS, optimization and stuff should be much better than Android.
