Samsung Z3 spotted running Tizen 3.0
Samsung Z1, the first smartphone loaded with Tizen OS, got delayed multiple times until it finally came out. Despite its low specs, this handset became quite popular in emerging markets like Bangladesh and also made it possible for Samsung to consider releasing a more powerful successor. Although the Samsung Z3 will not be a high-end device, it may show that Tizen-powered handsets can take on the mid-range area of the market as well.
Samsung still has to unveil the Z3, but insiders already revealed that it will hit the market loaded with version 2.4 of the South Korean giant's mobile operating system. The handset will pack a 720p display, 5 MP front camera and a more generous 8 MP image snapper on the back, all powered by a 2,600 mAh. These specs are far from impressive, but they are clearly far ahead of the weak Z1, which only has a 3.2 MP camera on the back, 800X480 pixels resolution, and 768 MB RAM.
The images that surfaced show Samsung Z3 running Tizen 3.0, build Z300HDDD1BOG1. Unfortunately, they do not come with new information on the specs and features of the handset. Samsung Z3 might be unveiled later this month at the Tizen Developer Summit, so stay tuned.
