This week, Samsung was scheduled to show off the Samsung Z, their first Tizen OS-based smartphone, at a developers conference in Russia, but apparently that's not going to happen anymore. The company has reportedly decided to delay the handset again, right at the last minute.

According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Samsung pulled the Samsung Z from the lineup at the developers conference in Russia, where the handset is supposed to launch at some point this year, due to one thing, and one thing only: apps, and a lack of them. Samsung made a brief statement in relation to the delay, saying that "the smartphone will appear on the Russian market later, when we can offer our users a fullest portfolio of applications."

The report confirms that the Samsung Z has not seen the amount of apps that many expected, which has resulted a lack of apps present in the Samsung Z's app store. Accordingly, it sounds like we'll still be waiting for the Samsung Z to land in Russia, and therefore even longer before Samsung's first Tizen OS-powered device makes it to the rest of the world.

As a refresher, the Samsung Z offers a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, with a resolution of 1280x720. There's a quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz under the hood, and 2GB of RAM. An 8MP camera on the back, with a 2.1-megapixel camera on the front. It has built-in storage of 16GB, but a microSD card slot for extra space if needed. The battery is measured at 2600mAh.
