More Details About Tizen-based Samsung SM-Z130H Leak

Samsung is working on a low-discontinue smartphone running Tizen, which it will launch in India at some point in the future. The device, known so far just by its model number (SM-Z130H), is actually codenamed Kiran, internally at Samsung.

After the canceled Samsung Z project, the Korean company has focused on the low-discontinue of the marketplace for its Tizen-based smartphone efforts. The first handset to run the recent Operating System (OS) (after many years of delays) should be this Z130H, or Kiran.

Today more details about it have been leaked, including the fact that, as you can see from the image above, it will have a button configuration that will be virtually identical to what Samsung has used for its Android devices until recently (when that Menu key on the left was replaced with a Recents one).

So expect the Z130 to have capacitive Menu and back Keys, in between which we should see a physical Home button. Moving on, the Tizen interface will rather closely mimic Samsung's TouchWiz UI for Android. It has basically the same general design language, as the leaked screenshots below can attest (click either of them for a full-res image).

Also making their way from Samsung's Android phones are a bunch of features such as Ultra Power Saving Mode and Private Mode, both of which will be available on the Kiran.

Spec-wise, we're looking at a handset with a 4-inch 480x800 touchscreen, a 3.2 MegaPixel (MP) rear capturing camera with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash, a 0.3 MegaPixel (MP) front snapper, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) 802.11n, dual-SIM functionality, and an Frequency Modulation (FM) radio.

Powering up the device will be a Spreadtrum SC7727S SoC with a 1.2 Giga Hertz (GHz) dual-core Central Processing Units (CPU) and ARM Mali-400 GPU clocked at 460 MHz, aided by 512Mega Bytes (MB) of RAM.

The Kiran will be srecent in India first, and it will apparently be positioned to hold on the cheap Android One devices that are already available over there. That might be a tough act to pull off, given the obvious lack of apps Tizen will face compared to Android.

It's unclear if this phone will create it to other markets too. Also, when exactly it will finally land in India is still a mystery.
