As we reported earlier, Samsung was expected to launch its first Tizen-based smartphone, the Z1, on December 10th but it was delayed. Now it seems like Samsung might be gearing up to launch the device as its specifications have been confirmed at a launch event held in Mumbai. According to the reports, the Tizen Z1 will be equipped with features like Auto selfie mode and low-light photography.
The Tizen Z1 will come with a 4.5-inch WVGA TFT display and 4GB of internal storage which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card. The smartphone will run Tizen 2.3 OS, powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and coupled with 768MB of RAM. The phone will sport a 3MP fixed-focus rear camera with flash, a VGA front-facing camera and 720p video playback. The device will also feature offline maps (powered by HERE maps) and offline web.
In terms of connectivity, it includes dual SIM card slots, 3G, Wi-Fi b/g/n, A-GPS and Bluetooth 4.0. It will be backed by a 1,500mAh battery with an ultra power saving mode. As an inaugural offer, the users will also be getting 500MB of 3G data for 6 months from Reliance and Aircel. Samsung has not revealed the price yet but we hope that it will be priced below Rs 6,000.
