Samsung’s latest Tizen-powered smartphone, the Samsung Z4, was announced last week and will be unveiled at the Samsung Developer Conference this week. It has now emerged that the Z4 will be heading to India where it will launch on May 19th.
The Samsung Z4 is an entry-level device and India as an emerging economy with a large population is a good market in which to sell the Z4. India has always been a ready market for Samsung’s Tizen-based smartphone lineup right from the launch of the first Tizen-powered Samsung smartphone, the Z1. The trend continued on subsequent models, the Samsung Z3, Z2, and now the Z4. As for the price, the Samsung Z4 will retail in India for INR 5,790 (approximately $89.52) and will lock horns with other entry-level Android smartphones.
As a reminder, the Samsung Z4 sports a 4.5-inch WVGA LCD display and is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor backed by 1GB RAM. The Z4 also packs 8GB of internal storage which is expandable via microSD. You also get a 5-megapixel main camera as well as a 5-megapixel selfie camera. The Z4 also prides itself as the first Samsung device running Tizen 3.0, the latest in the pack. It comes with dual-SIM support as well as 4G LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB port, and a 3.5mm audio jack, among other features. Keeping the lights on is a 2,050mAh battery which should be adequate for an extended use, coupled with the Ultra Power Saving feature of Tizen OS that is also found in the company’s Android-powered smartphone lineup.
