The Samsung Z1 has been around for almost 6 months and stands out from the rest as it runs Tizen OS. Since it is powered by Tizen, most people expected it to record low sales figures but this did not turn out to be. Even since the first days after it came to the market, this smartphone saw some impressive figures and even managed to sell over 50,000 units in just 10 days.

With these impressive sales figures, Samsung is said to be working on a gold variant of the Samsung Z1 that will be unveiled sometime next month. The smartphone will cost between $125-$235 which will make it very appealing to most people.
