Samsung Z1 to be unveiled in India on January 18th; check out these new photos and specs
The Samsung Z1 is now expected to be unveiled in India on January 18th. The Tizen flavored handset will feature a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800. As you can guess right off the bat, this is not a high-end model. With a dual-core 1.2GHz processor driving Miss Daisy, this would actually be considered an entry-level phone that is designed for emerging markets.

The handset will have 768MB of RAM and 4GB of native storage. In the almost certain case that you need more memory, a 32GB capacity microSD slot is provided. A 3MP camera graces the back of the phone, which also offers a .3MP front-facing snapper. 3G, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity is included, and a 1500mAh battery keeps the gerbil wheel spinning. Tizen 2.3 is pre-installed. We should also point out that the device supports dual SIM cards and has an FM radio built-in.

The Samsung Z1 was originally expected to be unveiled earlier this month. That event never took place, which leads us to the rumored unwrapping of the handset next month. 


Thanks for the tip, Arthur!

Sorry, galaxies make me sleepy..

Honestly though, I think Samsung is going to lose some fights this coming year with the Chinese coming out strong.

It's about time, it's obnoxious as each phone is identical to last with near identical specs, sleepy.

SamSung is tired of copying the form factor of the iphone that is why next year, they will copy the names.. Starting with Z1.

Not everybody need a phone that is garnish with top end specs for a higher price. A regular user will need some browsing, email, whatsapp, facebook, pictures, sms and phone calls. And for this they follow the price.

As the OS is new, price will be competitive enough by samsung

Maybe, but the one thing for sure is that Apple will copy the S6 within 2 years and call it innovation XD

If this is sold higher than $40, its over priced. Same question here with whiteman (post no.12).

Don't be fooled by the spec dual core are working perfectly on this phone, the new tizen 2.3 is so well optimized that it would run very smoothly, on par with IOS fluidness i'd say;)

No idea why Samsung Board of Directors approve that bad-looking phone. It looks far worse than Galaxy Trend Plus. Samsung is going crazy!

Come on guys, give it a chance~ Well ya i do admit that the overall design is just a duh!, but well that the market segment that they are focusing now, low-end smartphone market. Beside, shouldn't we should feel happy that there is a new OS that will join the club? Especially it is from Linux Foundation. Let see how it goes when it release, can't wait to get one.

sony left the S name whne samsung became very popular although they could have taken a ride on its popularity. now samsung is using a name that has been associated with the sony flagship. this company has neither pride nor shame. are they that desperate now that they're losing market share? they're still on top. their flagship android devices are excellent. why are they acting this s**ttily?

Oh my god, that tiny home button cracked me up xD xD I guess they didn't show the bottom part of the phone in the thumbnail for a reason xD. They could have at least give a minimum amount of effort in designing this phone as this is their "first" Tizen device which is available for consumers. Now just looking from design, it looks like even Samsung doesn't give much hopes into their Tizen project.

Did they make this device to fail from the beginning itself? And what are they going to name the next version, Z2? Dont they know that is already taken? Or are they so sure that there is not going to be a second phone in this series? Anyway, time for some more people in the lower ranks to be fired because the idiots who dreamt this name and series cant be fired.

Who would buy this? Why would they buy this? It's ugly, fat, has an OS that no one is making apps for yet if ever and its cheap as dirt. 768MB if RAM? This is just a music player with cellular capability. I thought Samsung was cutting back on models.

Aftershock you're being biased apple does the same thing year after year with minor upgrades the iPhone 4 to the 5s basically the same design. Why you people all hate Samsung. It's all a cycle and the reason why the iPhone is successful is simply one word Patriotism. To be honest the iPhone 6 design is not awe inspiring, .Let's be honest. And the truth is Samsung blundered with the S5. I was not impressed. But my faith tells me the S6 will be a stunner.
