Samsung's Tizen platform has only been available on a few markets and the only two handsets running it are the Z1 and Z3. However, sale figures were good enough to make the Korean giant continue pushing resources into this new operating system and to develop another Z series handset.

According to a recently spotted cargo document, 310 units of an "ASSY METAL REAR UNIT" were imported to India for testing. Since the value of a SM-Z510FD unit mentioned by the shipping manifest is roughly $25 USD, most chances are that Samsung Z5 has a metal chassis and a cheap design that uses plastic. On the other hand, the description of the product also mentions "FOR MOBILE PHONE" so the units shipped from Vietnam might be incomplete prototypes as well.

Unfortunately, there are no solid details available for now, but since it is highly likely that Samsung Z5 is still in an early development stage, its first official appeareance must be at least a few months away.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
