After Z1 and Z3, Samsung Z5 is the next in lineup as Samsung Tizen OS smartphone. Arriving in Q1, 2017?
Samsung’s proprietary Tizen OS isn’t a big hit but the Korean giant still want to have a go with it. After launching Samsung Z2 in India, the successor to previously launched Samsung Z1, we now are looking forward for Samsung Z5 launch.
Samsung Z5 Specs
The Z1 was an introductory 4 inch smartphone, while the Z3 came up with 5 inch HD display and with Samsung Z5 SM-Z510FD we aren’t expecting jump into phablet lineup. Samsung Z2 more or less has similar specifications in order to keep the price down to Rs 4590. The Korean giant would more prefer to upgrade Z2 with good internals and hardware so that it can compete with smartphones in its price tag.
We can expect 5 inch display with full HD 1080 pixels resolution with Octa core or Quad core processor, 1 Gigs or 2 GB RAM. From the camera point of view we might have 8 mega pixel rear and 5 mega pixel front sensor.
In terms of software we have upgraded Tizen OS 2.5 or even go with un-announced Tizen OS 3.
