Samsung’s Tizen-powered Z1 may be announced in India next week

I would like to think that it is pretty common knowledge by now that Samsung has been developing the Tizen platform for some time now, with the Samsung Z being tipped by many to be the first device that is based on the Tizen platform, although that was eventually ditched with low-end Tizen devices replacing it. Tizen Indonesia has reported that the SM-Z130H will roll out in India this coming December 10th, where it will carry the name Samsung Z1.

Samsung has been working on Tizen since 2013 and Samsung Z was expected to be the first device based on it, but it was ditched in favour of low-end Tizen devices. A couple of months ago, we discovered that Samsung was planning to launch their first Tizen-based device in the form of the SM-Z130H. Confirming our exclusive reports and some previous leaks about the device, Tizen Indonesia is now reporting that the SM-Z130H (also codenamed as Kiran) will be launched in India in December and will be called the Samsung Z1. According to their sources, Samsung will hold an event in India on December 10 to introduce the Tizen OS v2.3 based Z1, which will be priced below $100. It might feature a 4-inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core Spreadtrum SC7727S processor, Mali-400 GPU, 512MB RAM, a 3.2-megapixel primary camera with LED flash, and a VGA front-facing camera. In terms of connectivity, the device might feature dual-SIM card slots, 3G network compatibility, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, and FM Radio. The device passed FCC certification in October.
