Samsung's been theoretically launching Tizen smartphones left and right for years. Actually though, we've yet to see one shipping product running the mobile OS that was once seriously thought to be able to take on Android.
For the umpteenth time, we might be close to the release of the first Samsung Tizen device. This won't be high-end like the "indefinitely delayed" Samsung Z, rather a low-end offering that might be headed to India as soon as next month.
The SM-Z130H model number was first spotted in a few import listings for accessories on an Indian tracker back in July. And now it's been certified for sale by the FCC.
The Commission's documents don't shine much light on the phone's specs, except that it will have dual-SIM support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. According to a different import listing from India, it will come with a 4-inch touchscreen.
As such a low-end device, the SM-Z130 will have to be very cheap in order to sell, given that the software platform it will come with hasn't been proven yet.
