Samsung to announce Z1 smartphone with Tizen soon

It seems that the long Tizen saga will soon end happily for both Samsung and Tizen fans – according to online sources the first Tizen smartphone by Samsung will come out on December 10.

The device will be called Z1 and will run Tizen 2.3 out of the box. The smartphone will have a Spreadtrum SC7727S processor with two Cortex-A7 cores at 1.2 GHz, Mali-400 graphics and 512 MB of RAM. Moreover the device will rely on a 4-inch display at 800 x 480 pixels (288 ppi) and will have a 3.2 MP rear camera and a 0.8 MP front camera. The smartphone will have support for 802.11n Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth 4.0 and will support two SIM cards.

The modest tech specs of the Z1 mean that the smartphone will be offered in developing countries. In fact India will get it first where the Samsung Z1 will sell for less than USD 100. The goal is clear – Samsung wants to compete with Google’s budget Android One smartphone on this large market.
