The Tizen-based smartphone carries a 5-inch Super AMOLED 720p display.

After a number of rumors and leaks over the past few months, Samsung has now lifted the curtains off of the Z3 smartphone to reveal both its launch price and date. The Samsung Z3 will be coming October 21st in India for a price of 8490 Rupees or the equivalent of 115 Euros. Gold, Black, and Silver color options will be available. The Tizen-powered Z3 succeeds the Z1 that some were expecting to launch as early as July during this year's Samsung Tizen Developer Summit.

The Z3 includes updated hardware compared to the Z1 and brings a much-needed facelift as well:

  • 5-inch Super AMOLED display
  • 1280 x 720 pixel resolution
  • 1.3 GHz quad-core SoC
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB eMMC + MicroSD slot up to 128 GB
  • 8 MP rear (f/2.2) w/ LED Flash + 5 MP front (f/2.2) cameras
  • 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 + LE, USB 2.0, GPS, GLONASS
  • 141.6 x 70 x 7.9 mm
  • 137 grams
  • 2600 mAh battery

The smartphone will not support 4G and will be limited to 3G speeds. Samsung will also pre-load the device with the My Galaxy App, which will offer deals from partners such as Amazon.in. Other apps include Mixradio for free radio and music service.

While Tizen is but a small footnote for most regions around the world, it is an important OS for Samsung in India. VP of Mobile and IT Business of Samsung India Asim Warsi and President and CEO of Samsung India Chil Hyun both made appearances during the event to officially unveil the Z3.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
