Samsung is readying to launch a few new Tizen-based smartphones in the near future. Its first Tizen-powered smartphone Samsung Z1 has done quite well in countries like India and Bangladesh and now it looks like the company is moving ahead with its plans to make new Tizen devices including smartphones. We have already heard rumors that the upcoming Samsung Z3 would be running the Tizen OS.
Now Tizen Cafe, a Korean website, has posted some images of the Samsung Z3 (model no. SM-Z300H and build no. Z300HDDD1BOG1) running Tizen 3.0, on Twitter. Although the Samsung Z3 will supposedly run Tizen 2.4 when it is launched, these images showing the handset running the 3.0 version indicate that the company will probably update the handset’s version from 2.4 to 3.0 soon after launch.
The images show the Samsung Z3 to be a dual SIM smartphone, the screen seems larger that the Z1’s 4-inch display. It is rumored that the Z3 will sport a 5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Under the hood it will apparently have a quad-core 1.3 GHz Spreadtrum SC7730S CPU, a 1.5GB RAM, 8GB of internal memory, an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP selfie camera. The handset will be powered by a 2,600 mAh battery. These specs may make Samsung’s Tizen-based Z3 more acceptable to the consumers.
The company may officially announce the Samsung Z3 Tizen Developer Summit to be held at the end of July in Bengaluru, India. So the handset may be made available in India first.
