Samsung has announced it will release another Tizen-based smartphone, the Z4, later this month. The latest entry in the Z line is a budget device aimed at developing markets, with the low-end specs to match:

  • 4.5-inch WVGA 480 × 800 display
  • Quad-core 1.5GHz processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 5MP rear and front cameras
  • 2,050mAh battery, LTE, Bluetooth 4.0

The company says the Z4 will launch in India first, and then make its way to other select markets. But given the specs, which are reminiscent of smartphones in 2011, it’s unlikely we’ll see the Z4 in the US or Europe — at least officially. Samsung hasn’t unveiled pricing or the specific release date yet, but given the hardware I’d expect it to come in somewhere around $100.
