Samsung’s SM-Z9005 Tizen phone to have 720p screen, Snapdragon processor
It was less than a week ago when we spotted Samsung’s Tizen phone, model number SM-Z9005, rear its face in a shipping manifest, and now the device has shown in a UAProf (User Agent Profile) string on Samsung’s mobile website, which finally reveals some of the specs of Samsung’s upcoming Tizen-based smartphone (hint: the specs are similar to the Galaxy S3’s, like it has often been rumored) and indicates that testing of the device is going on in full force.
The SM-Z9005 will have a 720p display, and it will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor with multiple Krait cores (remains to be seen if it’s dual- or quad-core). The Snapdragon CPU was probably selected because of 4G LTE connectivity support, something which Samsung’s own Exynos processor isn’t very good at, though we might see an Exynos variant in non-LTE markets.
That’s all the info there is on this unnamed Tizen smartphone, which is expected to be launched sometime in October or November. We’ll be sure to be on the lookout for more details, and will let you guys know accordingly.
