Samsung is still hustling when it comes to its Tizen OS and today, it has unveiled the latest Tizen smartphone in India, the Samsung Z4. The smartphone is priced at Rs 5790 and is offered in Black and Gold color. It’s pretty evident that Samsung is targeting the first-time smartphone buyers and also folks looking out for a basic secondary smartphone.
The Samsung Z4 comes with a 4.5-inch WVGA display along with 2.5D curved glass and is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. On the storage front, the Samsung Z4 offers 8GB of inbuilt storage along with a microSD card slot that supports up to 128GB. Camera arrangements include a 5-Megapixel camera on both front and back along with LED flash on both sides as well.
With more than 500 million feature phone users, India has immense potential for a smartphone upgrade. As the market leader, we at Samsung consider it our priority to facilitate this journey towards smartphones. Our affordable Tizen series has been instrumental in catalysing the smartphone upgrade and with Z4, we will offer yet another compelling product to affordable segment consumers-Mr. Asim Warsi, Senior Vice President, Samsung India Electronics
Connectivity-wise, the Samsung Z4 offers 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, USB 2.0 and GPS. The smartphone is further backed by a 2050mAh battery and the Ultra Power Saving Mode is something that will help users to extend their battery life in the hour of need. Samsung has been pushing its Tizen OS via the Z-Series budget smartphone lineup. The first Tizen smartphone released was the Samsung Z1 and the last one to hit the Indian market was the Samsung Z2. With the increased penetration of 4G in rural areas budget devices like the Tizen and the Redmi 4A are expected to fuel the further growth. The Samsung Z4 will be available starting from May 19th and will come with an extra back cover. However, at this price point, the Redmi 4A is a strong contender and is exponentially better when it comes to the hardware and overall features.
