Samsung Z1 Tizen Smartphone Purportedly Pictured

While Samsung is expected to officially launch its first Tizen-based smartphone, the Z1, in India on January 18, the company on Monday appears to have unveiled the device at a partner event in Mumbai.
Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom, which has a long track record of leaks, posted images on Twitter of the 'Samsung Z1 Partners Meet' on Monday, along with images of the Tizen-based Z1 smartphone and its specifications.

According to the retailer, the dual-SIM Samsung Z1 will run on Tizen 2.3 OS and feature a 4-inch WVGA (480x800 pixels) display; a 1.2GHz dual core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM; a 3-megapixel rear camera; a 0.3-megapixel front camera with f/2.4 aperture; 4GB of inbuilt storage expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB), and a 1500mAh battery. Connectivity options are said to include 3G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0.

The retailer also noted that the company in tie-up with Aircel and Reliance will provide free 500MB of 3G data for six months. The other bunch of features said to come with Samsung Z1 are features like offline maps via Here maps, offline Web browsing via UC Browser for Tizen, auto selfie mode, low light photography, ultra power saving mode, and more.

While there is no word on the pricing, last week, a Samsung official had reportedly confirmed the Z1 handset in India will not cost more than KRW 100,000 (roughly Rs. 5,700). The Samsung Z1 is also reported to reach China in February and Korea in H1 2015. Samsung however, has not given out any official details on the smartphone's availability and launch as of now.
