Tizen-powered Z3 reportedly coming soon with larger display and improved camera
It has been rumored multiple times over the past few weeks that Samsung has a new Tizen-powered handset in the pipeline, it’s expected to tout a larger display and an improved camera, a new report today out of Korea claims that the Samsung Z3 is going to be launched in the near future. Considering the fact that the handset was recently certified by the FCC that itself was a major indication that the launch is not that far off.
The report suggests that Samsung could release the Z3 in October at the latest though it might show off the device during the upcoming Tizen Developer Conference which takes place from September 17 to September 18 in Shenzhen, China. Some are of the view that the Z3 will be released around the same time as the Gear S2, Samsung’s new Tizen-powered smartwatch, this way Samsung will have two new products that run on Tizen out in the market at the same time. It’s expected that the Z3 might perform better than its predecessors and Samsung might launch the handset in ever more markets, particularly emerging markets across the Middle East. The Z3 likely features a 5-inch 1280x720p display, a 1.3Ghz, quad-core Spreadtrum SC7730S processor with 1.5GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera as well as Tizen 3.0.
