Tizen Samsung Z1 full specifications leaked, India release followed by China and Korea


Samsung Z1 is HERE … almost

We have been waiting for the Samsung Z1 launch event, and it looks like its finally happening at a secret Samsung Z1 launch event in India. Its exciting to see that we have final specifications of the Z1 which runs Tizen 2.3, 4.0 inch 800 x 480 PLS TFT display, 768MB RAM, 1.2GHz Dual-core processor, 3MP primary camera with a LED flash, VGA Front Facing Camera, 4GB internal storage, microSD card slot, with a 1,500 mAh battery.
Additional features include a Ultra Power Saving Mode, offline web, HERE Maps with offline mapping capability, auto Selfie mode, and also low-light photography but we don’t have specific technology details on this at the moment, most likely a fast aperture will come into play here. Samsung have gone on-board with Indian carriers Reliance and Aircel who will be offering FREE 500Mb data per month for the first 6 months for new customers.
The Smart phone supports dual SIM card slots which is an important feature to the Indian and also Chinese markets. We also have additional connectivity options of 3G, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, A-GPS, and an FM Radio.
This move is to help boost its Samsung’s smartphone sales and help promote its own services and earn revenue from the Tizen Store. According to another report Samsung intends to initially release the Tizen smartphone in India on 18 January, but then will also launch in China in February 2015, shortly followed by Korea in the first half of 2015.

A Samsung official said “We have decided to release the Tizen phone in India on January 18, 2015. The price of the phone is set at less than 100,000 won.” The company plans to sell the Tizen phone through online shopping malls and existing sales networks, instead of staging separate marketing efforts.
