Samsung to launch Tizen-based smartphone in India

New low cost phone is expected to be unveiled on 10th December.

By CBR Staff Writer

Samsung is reportedly planning to introduce its Tizen-based smartphone in India.

Samsung is expected to unveil the sub-$100 Z1 smartphone at a press event on 10th December, according to Reuters who cited South Korea’s Maeil Business Newspaper.

According to previous reports by the Economic Times, the phone is likely to feature a 4-inch screen with 480p display, with a pixel density of 288ppi.

It is expected to feature a 1.2GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and a 3.2-megapixel camera.

Initially, Samsung planned to launch smartphones based on its own operating system during the third quarter in Russia, but eventually the plan was canceled.

Samsung is reportedly planning to improve and enhance the ecosystem behind Tizen, as only a few of its products currently run on Tizen.

Samsung has launched several low cost Android based phones in the emerging Indian market, and it is expected that the company will keep the trend alive with the introduction of the new phone.
