Tizen 3.0-powered Samsung Z4 Up For Grabs In India


South Korean tech giant Samsung had announced its another newest Tizen OS-powered smartphone, the "Samsung Z4" for the selected tech markets across the world. Earlier, while speaking to the press Asim Warsi, Senior Vice President, Samsung India Electronics had stated, "Our affordable Tizen series has been instrumental in catalyzing the smartphone upgrade and with Z4, we will offer yet another compelling product to affordable segment consumers". The Samsung Z4 comes in two colour options - Black and Gold. The Samsung Z1 was launched in January 2015, and strangely, was followed by the the Samsung Z3, unveiled in October 2015.

The Samsung Z4 sports a 4.5-inch WVGA (480x800 pixels) display with 2.5D curved glass on top, which the company says is a first for its Z-Series Tizen smartphones.

Samsung is emphasising the cameras on the smartphone as the key marketing points.

Samsung Z4 is priced at Rs. 5,790 and it will be available via offline retailers in the country. The camera features are its main USP as it houses a 5 MP primary camera with dual flash support and a 5 MP secondary camera with f2.2 aperture and LED flash support. Samsung claims that both cameras on Samsung Z4 are "optimised for social media" and offer a wide range of features focused on convenience and productivity, including quick and easy access to the most frequently used functions. Using different combinations of physical buttons or swiping the screen, users can create shortcuts to launch convenient features including Quick Talk, Quick Torch, Quick Launch of the camera or Quick Switch without returning to the home screen.

Processor wise, the device has a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor supported by 1 GB of RAM. Like other Samsung phones, the Z4 also has Ultra Power Saving mode and comes with S Bike mode.

The dual-SIM smartphone is backed by a removable 2050mAh battery. The connectivity features include 4G LTE, VoLTE, and VoWiFi, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, Global Positioning System and micro USB. The Samsung Z4 measures 132.9x69.2x10.3mm and weighs 143 grams.
