Compared to the previous generations of Tizen mobile operating system, the newer one does look a lot better. From the images, however, we are not able to spot any functional improvements or any features. The user interface looks more optimized as it fits right across the smaller screen resolution. At an interview last week at company’s developers conference, Taesoon Jun, Samsung’s chief architect of Tizen operating system had announced that the company is now focusing more on the long-end and mid-range smartphones.
From what we know so far, the company will launch SM-Z130H soon in India. The handset features a 4-inch 480p display with a pixel density of 288ppi. It will be powered by a 1.2GHz processor paired with 512MB of RAM, and will run on Tizen OS 2.3. The phone will come with a 3.2-megapixel camera. The company is also expected to offer Club Samsung 2.0 service, through which it will offer localized music, videos, TV shows and other content to lure in Indian audience.
