Proof of Samsung’s under-testing low-end Tizen phone emerges

Despites its dull reception, Samsung has no option but to embrace its own Tizen OS which is why it seems to be trying it on devices from different price categories. After the unveiling of its mid-range handset bearing the said platform, word came that the high-end Galaxy S5 could soon be infused with the software.

And now, we have proof of a low-end Tizen handset which seems to be under testing at the moment. Units of a certain SM-Z130H phone have landed in India from South Korea along with their accessories, according to Indian cargo website, Zauba (via SamMobile).

That ‘Z’ in the model name of the device indicates that it bears the Tizen OS onboard. The low prices which can be seen in the image above go on to confirm that this Samsung smartphone is set to fall in the entry-level category. It should be noted that it was the same website which had provided evidence of a Tizen OS-equipped Galaxy S5 having arrived in India for testing a while ago.

The only official handset from the company running the platform is the Samsung Z which has failed to meet its release date due to various issues. This device bears a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display and carries onboard a 2.3GHz quad core processor. It also houses an 8MP rear camera and a 2.1MP front snapper for selfies and video calling.

We’ll keep digging for details on the apparent low-end Samsung Tizen device which has been seen in cargo details, so count on us to hear more about it once additional information is out.
