Samsung’s first Tizen 3.0 smartphone design revealed

Not all budget-friendly smartphones run Android. One of the most popular alternatives is Tizen, an operating system originally designed by Samsung for its ‘Z’ range of devices — and it would appear that there’s a new handset on the way called the Samsung Z4.

Even though it’s been in the press a considerable amount recently, we’ve been in the dark about the design of the firm’s next-generation Tizen phone. Up until now, that is. Earlier today, a user manual surfaced online, complete with an annotated diagram of the unit.

Aside from being the first handset to run the latest build of Tizen — 3.0 — out of the box, the Samsung Z4 is also set to feature a front-facing and dual-rear facing flash, leading us to believe that the company is trying to bring high-end camera performance to the entry-level market.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any specific details with regards to the camera sensors the Samsung Z4 sports, nor do we know anything about the other internals it packs, except that it has a 2,050mAh removable battery and space for two microSIMs or a microSD card with a capacity of up to 128GB.

The Samsung Z4 could come to the U.S.

Typically, Samsung reserves its ‘Z’ lineup for emerging markets, like India, but that doesn’t mean it won’t bring the Samsung Z4 to the United States. Tizen has certainly come a long way since it first launched back in 2012, and we can see a place for the low-priced handset on the shelves of Best Buy.
