About 3 weeks ago, I told you that Samsung had sold over 50,000 Samsung Z1 units in just 10 days. These numbers may not seem impressive but considering the phone was only available in one market (India) and runs a new OS (Tizen) you will see why the 50,000 figure excites me.
Well it looks like the Samsung Z1 has been received well as the latest sales figures stand at Over 120,000 units. These are the figures from India and Bangladesh where the Samsung Z1 is currently available. Breaking down the numbers shows that in India the Samsung Z1 sold over 100,000 units while Bangladesh recorded over 20,000 units sold.
Launching the Samsung Z1 in emerging markets (India in this case) puts it head to head with most other cheap Android handsets and considering it is running Tizen, the latest figures are very impressive. Keep in mind that the Samsung Z1 has been on the market for less than 2 months.
Samsung is said to be carrying out aggrieve marketing campaigns to promote the Samsung Z1. With such campaigns, I expect the Z1 sales figures to be even higher in the next few months.
The Samsung Z1 has a 4-inch display with a resolutions of 480 x 800 pixels. It has a 3MP camera, 1.2GHz dual core processor, 768 MB of RAM and 4GB of memory (expandable).
