Samsung launched the Tizen-powered Z3 in India back in October last year. At launch, the handset was priced at ₹8,490 but it appears that only five months after launch several retailers are selling the handset at a discount. Online price comparison site MySmartPrice lists the Samsung Z3 as available for ₹6,900 from three top online retailers in the country: Amazon, Snapdeal, and Flipkart.
Tizen smartphones were never expensive to begin with because the idea was to price them in a range that appeals to people who don’t want to spend too much on a handset or those who are purchasing their very first smartphone. At a discounted price the Samsung Z3 is an ever better deal considering the fact that it’s a decent smartphone even though it doesn’t quite have the applications that one gets on an Android device.
