Samsung appears to be getting ready to release its upcoming Tizen-based smartphone, the Samsung Z2, as more details have surfaced over the last few weeks. Having already received Bluetooth certification, the device is expected to be launched in India next month.

The South Korean technology giant is tight-lipped on the upcoming device, but SamMobile has reported that a handset with model number SM-Z200F, believed to be the Samsung Z2, has received Bluetooth certification, giving a clear hint that its release may not be far off. It went on to claim that the device will come with features like enhanced Voice Control and S Bike Mode feature. There are also reports that the device will sport a 4-inch display with LTE connectivity. 

Now, SamMobile has claimed that the Samsung Z2 will come with My Money Transfer app for Indian users. The app will help users transfer money from their bank accounts anytime anywhere, and check other details like account balance and recent transactions even without login in to internet. However, it works only on accounts that have enabled Internet banking. 

The report went on to say that the app will work with several banks namely HDFC, SBI, Axis, ICICI, Yes Bank, Andhra Bank, Karnataka Bank, Punjab National Bank, and Vijaya Bank.

It may be mentioned that the Samsung Z2 is the successor of the Samsung Z1. The device that was released in 2015 sports a 4-inch PLS TFT capacitive touchscreen with 480x800 pixels (233ppi pixel density), measures 120.4x63.2x9.7 mm in dimension, powered by a 1.2GHz dual core Speedtrum SC7727S processor, and runs home-made Tizen operating system.

The device also features a 4GB internal memory expandable up to 64GB via microSD card, a 768MB RAM, a 3.15MP main camera with LED flash, Geo-tagging and face detection, a VGA front-snapper, and a 1,500mAh battery. In terms of connectivity, it supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.1, A2DP, GPS and microUSB v2.0.
