Alleged photo of upcoming Samsung Tizen smartphone, ZEQ9000
A Korean website published this product image of what is, allegedly, the first Samsung Tizen-based smartphone to be sold to consumers. It's called ZEQ9000, which probably means it's coming from a similar place as the previous Samsung Tizen phones that we know of - the SM-Z9000 and the SM-Z9005. Its eventual market name could be “Zeke” - according to the source, Samsung has filed for this new brand last August.

It's hard to say whether this leak is reliable or not, but the smartphone's design - not a wildly imaginative designer's concept, but a familiar textured plastic affair, seems authentic enough. As for the operating system shown on the display, its visual style mostly matches the Tizen 2.1 screenshots that leaked last December. The upper status bar, for example, is the same between the two leaks. The flat and symmetrical aesthetic, shaped by rectangles and squares, is preserved as well.

This leak contains some specifications, too. Zeke could have a 4.8-inch HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU running at 2.3GHz, and be slightly smaller than the Galaxy S4 in size.

While not every part of this leak sounds credible, most of it manages to squeeze past the lie detector. Perhaps we will learn more truthful details from Samsung's official pre-MWC Tizen Developer event on February 23, or at the Congress itself.
