More information on Samsung’s new Tizen phone has been revealed

1 min read

As it stands, iOS and Android currently dominate the smartphone platform market. However we expect that this will not be forever as one day there will be a new platform that could possibly take over. Could it be Samsung’s Tizen? Perhaps, although they’d actually need to release a Tizen-based smartphone first. Now according to an earlier rumor, Samsung could be planning on releasing a low-end Tizen device in India come November, and thanks to the folks at SamMobile, details about the upcoming handset have been revealed. Prior to this, Samsung had announced the Samsung Zbut it was cancelled.

After months of delays, Samsung officially announced the Samsung Z, the first commercial Tizen-powered smartphone, back in June this year. However, the Samsung Z has still not made it to markets, and rumors have hinted thatSamsung plans to ditch the Z and focus on launching low-end handsets given the explosive growth the budget smartphone segment has seen in recent months. There has also been a rumor that said Samsung is planning to launch a low-cost Tizen phone in India by November, and thanks to our sources, we now have some details on the first low-end Tizen phone that Samsung is planning on bringing to market. Based on the information we’ve received, the device will be as low-end as it gets. It will have dual SIM slots and an FM radio, two features that are very popular in emerging markets (like India), and a low-resolution (3.2-megapixel) rear camera; as for the software, the device (SM-Z130H) will be running Tizen 2.3, though that can change by the time it becomes available for purchase. For any new OS, the number of popular apps it has available is an important aspect, and we can confirm that both Twitter and Facebook will be making official apps for Tizen and making it available on the upcoming device. Of course, that doesn’t mean we will see a lot of popular apps make its way to Tizen in a short span of time, but having two of the most popular social network apps will certainly help.
