The launch of the Samsung Z1 may actually be happening for real this time, as Samsung has shown off the device at a secret launch event that is happening in India. Revealed at  the event were full specifications and a few key features of the device, which were leaked by a local retailer. The Z1 runs Tizen 2.3 and features a 4.0-inch PLS TFT display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 768MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 1,500 mAh battery. The device is equipped with a 3-megapixel primary camera with fixed-focus lens and LED flash, while the front-facing camera has a VGA resolution. Connectivity options include dual SIM card slots with 3G, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, A-GPS, and an FM Radio.

On the software front, the Tizen-based device borrows some features from its Android-powered Galaxy siblings. It features Ultra Power Saving Mode, offline web, offline maps (courtesy of HERE), Auto Selfie mode, and low-light photography. Samsung has tied up with Indian carriers Reliance and Aircel and will offer 500MB of free 3G data for the first six months to customers buying the Samsung Z1.
