New Samsung SM-Z9005 Tizen phone to be powered by Snapdragon and run a 720p screen
If research is to be trusted, whilesmartphoneshave finally overtaken feature phones in sales volume, the world,as a whole, still has a long way to go until we reach a state wheresmartphones are the norm. With that in mind, it certainly makes sensethat contenders go right ahead and attempt to disrupt the nearlycemented duopoly of Android and iOS. One such contender has beenTizen, and the team behind it is not without someserious back up. And though thingswere seemingly hanging in the balance for a while, it appearsthat the project is taking off at full speed.
wehave more than a mostly uninformative model number. We know this,because the UAProf (User Agent Profile) of a device with a modelnumber SM-Z9005 running a resolution of 720x1280 has appeared onSamsung's site. Rustling through the strings of code, our attentionis immediately drawn to the fact that the SM-Z9005 is powered by aKrait CPU, an exclusive to Snapdragon SoCs. Gritting our teeth at theimpossibility to identify which exact Qualcomm chipset this Tizendevice will make use of, we at least know that it will have supportfor 4G LTE.
In case you're wondering, the firstfew Tizen-powered devices are expected to hit the market no earlierthan October or November this year. Said otherwise, depending on howanxious you're to see the project brought to fruition, this could beconsidered both far into the future and vice-versa.
