With an aim to double its volumes, Samsung has been busy panning a number of low-end handsets targeted at emerging countries, including India and China.
Just last week, Samsung officially unveiled two new mid-end handsets - Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 smartphones - both running on Google's Android OS. Now, South Korea's largest smartphone maker could unveil a low-end Tizen phone shortly.
Over the past few months, Samsung has been speculated to launch a low-end Tizen phone. Today the rumored phone has made its debut online.
FCC certification documents for the SM-Z130H have been leaked online and it is expected to be running on Tizen OS. Apparently, there's not much known about the said device. However, it may have a 4-inch screen of an unknown resolution, accompanied by a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Previously rumors suggest that it will be a purely budget handset with a 3.2 megapixel rear-facing camera, dual-SIM capability, FM radio and running on Tizen 2.3.
Tizen is a Linux-based operating system for mobile devices such as smartphones. The Tizen operating system is set to give competition to Google's Android mobile OS.
Samsung had been facing issues launching the Tizen-based phone. In fact the company had announced its first ever Tizen phone a few months back but it never made its way to most markets.
The low-end phone, the SM-Z130, might be headed to India, if latest reports have anything to go by.
