With rumors indicating the arrival of the first Samsung smartphone equipped with Tizen and facts that contradict them in the process, we no longer know exactly where the South Korean manufacturer is in its project which is not new and which should allow it to escape a bit from the grip of Google and dependence on the Android ecosystem. But this is information that may herald the end of the long (very long) tunnel.

Today, it is indeed a question of a date, with a Z1 smartphone under the 100 dollar mark which could be formalized on Next January 18 in India and in february in China. The information was allegedly confirmed to the Korea Economic Daily by someone from Samsung.
Characteristic side, we talk about a processor 1.2 GHz dual-core spreader, a 512 MB RAM, a screen 4 inch in a definition 800 x 480 pixels, of a support 3G / Wi-Fi, two SIM slots and 0.3 / 3.2 Megapixel photo sensors.
See you next month to find out. Unless there is another disappointment …
