Apparently, Samsung has codenamed the device (SM-Z130H) as ‘Kiran’, though its actual name isn’t known yet. It is expected to feature WVGA touchscreen display of unknown size, a 1.2GHz dual-core Spreadtrum SC7727S processor, Mali-400GPU, 512MB of RAM, a 3.2-megapixel primary camera with LED flash, and a VGA front-facing camera. Connectivity wise, the device will be equipped with dual-SIM card slot, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, FM Radio, and microUSB v2.0 port.

The UI design of Tizen OS v2.3 closely resembles to Samsung’s TouchWiz and all the icons are rounded off. The devices was expected to compete with Android One smartphones, but after having a look at these specifications, it looks like a competitor to Firefox OS based devices.
