launching the Z1 and selling 1 million units
of it, Samsung is now getting ready to introduce a
second smartphone that runs Tizen OS. Reportedly, this new handset is called Samsung Z3 (despite the fact that a Z2 doesn't exist), and won't have
the modest features of the Z1.
According to SamMobile, the Z3 will sport a 5-inch
Super AMOLED display with 720 x 1280 inches (definitely superior to the 4-inch,
480 x 800 pixels screen of the Z1), being powered by a quad-core Spreadtrum
SC7730S processor clocked at 1.3 GHz. The new handset should also feature dual
SIM capabilities, 1.5 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, a 5 MP front-facing
camera, and an 8 MP rear camera with LED flash. Weighing 140 grams and
measuring 141.5 x 70 x 9.5 mm, the Z3 reportedly includes a 2600 mAh battery.
The Z3 (model number SM-Z300H) was recently
imported to India for testing purposes as well as for a "partnering
event", which might mean Samsung is planning to announce it at the end of
July during the Indian Tizen Developer Summit.
Just like the Z1 , the Samsung Z3
is likely going to be released in India first, though we won't be surprised to
see it available in various other markets at about the same time.
