Samsung announced Samsung Galaxy Z4 today. The device runs on Tizen 3.0 OS.
According to Wikipedia, Tizen OS is based on Linux kernel and GNU C Library implementing the Linux API. It works on a wide range of devices including smartphones, tablets, in-vehicle infotainment, smart camera, wearables, etc. Its purpose is to offer consistent user experience across devices.
Samsung Galaxy Z4 comes with a small display of 4.5-inches only. It has HD screen with 2.5D glass shield. Not all of us wants a smartphone that is big and highly
Not all of us wants a smartphone that is big and highly speced. Some of us want a small sized basic smartphone. Samsung Galaxy Z4 is the answer to your cry.
The device multitasks on 1GB RAM and a quad-core processor running at 1.5GHz. The storage on the device is 8GB and is powered by 2050mAh battery.
As mentioned earlier, Samsung Galaxy Z4 is a basic phone. The phone comes with enhanced exterior features to prevent it from slipping from your hands easily. The back cover is textured to offer you friction while holding the phone.
What’s not basic is a good camera hardware feature. The rear camera is 5MP shooter with dual LED Flash and aperture of f/2.2. The front camera is somewhat similar to the rear camera. It has the same 5MP shooter but with a single LED Flash.
The front camera can be used very easily by waving the hand at it or simply by saying ‘cheese’ or Auto Selfie (a special feature which uses face recognization to click images).
On the operating system front of Galaxy Z4, this device comes with Tizen OS version 3.0 which offers much better service and user interaction as compared to the older versions.
The device has been made interesting for the user by allowing a combination of physical buttons and screen swipes for various jobs like Quick Talk, Quick Torch, Quick camera launch or Quick Switch.
DJ Koh, President of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics said, “We’re dedicated to providing our customers with devices that offer smarter mobile interaction. The Samsung Galaxy Z4 brings a simplified mobile experience to first-time smartphone users and represents our ongoing commitments to expanding the Tizen ecosystem”.
As for the Indian variant of Galaxy Z4, the device will be available in Black, Silver and White. The price is not yet known.
I’m expecting the price of Samsung Galaxy Z4 to be around ~Rs.9000 or less. Having a proper Samsung phone in this range will grab the attention of a lot of buyers.
