The first ever Tizen phone to be announced by Samsung was the Samsung Z but for some reason only known to the Korean giant, the phone didn’t make it to the retail shelves. The Z1 that was announced earlier today, however, is the first Tizen device that will be available for purchase to consumers. The Samsung Z1 is the other end of the spectrum if you compare it with Samsung’s Z.
The phone is targeted at the entry-level market with an asking price of Rs. 5,700 and features “lightweight Tizen platform” along with 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 768MB RAM, 4GB internal memory, microSD card slot, 4-inch WVGA PLS display, 3.1 megapixel main camera with front-facing VGA camera and 1500mAh battery.
Additionally the Z1 comes with a free entertainment package called the Joy Box that gives access to music, TV and movies through Club Samsung, Hungama, nexGTv and Box TV.
The phone is available now in White, Black and Wine Red colours but quite frankly, is the device lucrative enough considering we’ve got far better options like Asus Zenfone or Xiaomi Redmi 1S?
