Samsung’s first Tizen powered smartphone saw more than its fair share of delays. A few months back the Samsung Z was finally released but it never made its way to most markets around the world. It was meant to be released only in selected markets but even there availability problems were faced. This gave rise to rumors that perhaps Samsung would be scrapping the Z and turning its focus towards a low end Tizen smartphone. Today yet another leak of such a smartphone has surfaced online.
Previously reports suggest that it will be a purely low end device with dual-SIM capability, FM radio, a low resolution 3.2 megapixel rear camera and an updated version of the OS known as Tizen 2.3. The feature set isn’t impressive at all but things like dual-SIM and FM radio are actually some of the most sought after features in markets like India.
FCC certification documents for the SM-Z130H have been leaked online and it is believed to be the aforementioned low end Tizen smartphone. There’s not much that these documents reveal about the device besides the possibility that it may have a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as well as a 4-inch touchscreen of an unknown resolution.
By looking at its purported specifications it is easy to ascertain that this low end device will only be meant for certain markets, with focusing being on emerging markets. Samsung is yet to officially say anything about this device or when it might be released.
