Samsung launched the Z1, the company's first ever Tizen based smartphone, earlier this month and there are some contrasting reports about how it's doing. Just last week, Reuters said that the handset was struggling to find its feet in India, where it is exclusively available at the moment. A new report this week from Business Korea is contradicting that and saying the Samsung Z1 is actually doing well.

Samsung's first ever Tizen based smartphone has been in the pipeline for some time, starting as a high end device that was cancelled and then a lower end handset.
