Samsung’s plans to launch a low-end Tizen smartphone in India during Diwali surfaced online last week. Today, we have our first look at the some of the specifications and features it could boast, courtesy of SamMobile.
According to the publication, the smartphone will feature a 3.2-megapixel camera, dual-SIM support, FM radio will come preloaded with apps like Twitter and Facebook. As for the software, the smartphone will run on Tizen 2.3. In addition to the above mentioned apps, Samsung is also expected to offer Club Samsung 2.0 service, through which it will offer localized music, videos, TV shows and other content. Samsung hopes that this will help it boost Tizen’s traction among users.
Samsung is expected to launch either one of or both the entry-level smartphones codenamed SM-Z130E or the SM-Z130H. Both the smartphones were recently spotted on an Indian import manifest. Samsung had earlier announced its first ever Tizen powered smartphone called Samsung Z. But has since then ditched the plans to launch the smartphone. The South Korean giant is instead focusing on the low-end price segment with its Tizen smartphones.
