Although South Korean smartphone maker Samsung has placed its undivided focus on its upcoming Galaxy S5, which is this year's flagship smartphone, the company also has a number of devices yet to be made official.
The maker of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch has already got as series of tablets in the pipeline. Now adding one more device to its this year's lot, the latest Tizen-powered phone with a model number SM-Z9005 has appeared online.
In fact, the device is actually listed on ebay and was reportedly being sold at $300 (which would be translated to about Rs. 18,804), which has now been stroked out. The e-commerce site referred to it as- "New Tizen Samsung SM-Z9005 smartphone for apps development."
Moreover, even the smartphone's pictures have been posted on the same site. It is a bit blurry but can figure out how the device actually looks. However, the site didn't reveal the full specs.
Of all the details related to the smartphone, eBay says that the SM-Z9005 smartphone will come with a 4.7-inch screen (contrary to that of the previoulsly said 4.8 inch) and 16GB storage. And while the company has already stated that the device wouldn't come to markets anytime soon, it seems like the company is waiting for Intel to come up with a new Merrifield chip, which could be loaded in the device.
Thus there is a rare chance of the smartphone being unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2014 later this February in Barcelona, Spain.
