Not too long ago, Samsung unveiled its Tizen-power Samzung Z1 in India for just INR 5,700. The handset is an entry-level offering from the Korean company, but with their in-house operating system rather than Android.
According to a new report from Economic Times, Samsung plans to manufacture the ‘Z1’ at its Noida facility soon, which has the capacity to produce over four million units a month, and can be used to manufacture both entry-level and high-end smartphones.
“The compelling proposition of an easy to use and clutter free interface (of Z1), along with premium design has met wide consumer acceptance… The Z1 will be manufactured in company’s Noida plant in UP,” Samsung India Vice President Marketing (Mobile and IT) Asim Warsi told.
There’s no word about the launch of Samsung Z1 in other western markets, but it appears to be limited to developing markets at the moment, but Warsi said the handset is expected to launch in Bangladesh soon.
Samsung Z1 comes with a 4 inch WVGA PLS display with a resolution of 800 by 480 pixels, a 1.2GHz dual core processor paired with 768MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage coupled with a microSD card slot for expansion. Other features include a 3.15MP camera, VGA front-facing camera, a 1,500 mAh battery and ships with Tizen as its operating system.
