On Monday, Tizen Indonesia has allegedly leaked the Samsung Z1, which according to sources could be unveiled in India on December 10. They also suggest that Samsung's Z1 will be priced below $100 or Rs. 6,200, when it goes on sale in India.

The rumor-mongers also mention Samsung's Z1, known to be the cheapest Tizen-powered smartphone, will feature a 4-inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core Spreadtrum SC7727S processor, Mali-400 GPU, 512MB RAM, a 3.2-megapixel primary camera with LED flash, and a VGA front-facing camera, dual-SIM card slots, 3G/2G GSM connectivity, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, and FM Radio.

Well, don't expect brilliant specs from the Samsung Z1. Just like the Android One range of phones, it looks like this could be another mid-range device, offering average specifications.

Last month, Sam Mobile, a blog dedicated to covering Samsung devices, revealed photos of screenshots, UI design, and icons from the purported devices.

Samsung's Tizen (Open Source Linux) based smartphone has been anticipated for a launch since its inception in 2013. Initially, Samsung Z was unveiled by the South Korean tech titan under the budget category, however the phone never reached the retail shelves. Looks like now, Samsung is planning to launch their first Tizen-based device in the form of the SM-Z130H in India soon.

If Samsung does have a big announcement next week it will prove to be a big month for the South Korean tech giant. The Samsung Z1 will directly compete against a flurry of low-end handsets running on Google's Android mobile OS.
