One of the major concerns with the upcoming Tizen smartphone, the Z1 by Samsung is the lack of app support the device will be getting. Not many people are going to want to buy a smartphone that a limited amount of apps. Some users just need to have their go-to apps such as WhatsApp.
Well, we have good news for those who actually were worried about WhatsApp being excluded from the Z1. According to new images released, the messaging app should come pre-loaded onto the device out of the box. Looking at the pictures, the app layout looks copy paste of the Android app so we’re most probably going to expect a totally native client.
The Z1 is launching in India tomorrow. With that, we’ll find out if the device is truly getting WhatsApp out of the box or will there be a waiting period before the app is released on Tizen.
