Last year the Korean manufacturer Samsung introduced the Z1 an entry level phone backed up with their own OS Tizen.

Now they decided to extend the family with the new kid on the block the also low-end Samsung Z3

Samsung-Z3-mAt simple sight the Z3 could easily be mistaken with a member of the Galaxy family, but when we take a closer look we realize that the back is made from plastic.

As said before this is not a high-end model despite the appearance, take a look at the specs:

A 5″ Super AMOLED display (720×1,280)

A Quad-core Spreadtrum chip

1GB of RAM

8GB of internal storage (With Micro SD slot up to 128GB)

8MP rear camera

5MP front-facing shooter with 120-degree

And  2,600mAh battery

All that powered by Tizen OS in version 2.3

In the connectivity department you’ll have WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth® 4.0 BLE, GPS and GLONASS

The only really downgrade is that you will not have 4G connectivity, unfortunately there’s just 3G on board.

Following the steps of his big siblings this little boy also features an “Ultra Data Saving Mode’” that minimizes mobile data usage and an “Ultra Power Saving Mode” for continuous performance with low battery life.

Tizen-Application-StoreOne thing that has the Tizen behind other OS is the lack of apps as you’ll normally hear from any rising OS.

But as a bonus you’ll have the MixRadio app, one of the most personalized music services.

MixRadio_LogoAll in all is a good phone for trying new stuff.

The phone is already available to purchase in India for INR 8490 which translate into €114,25 (£84.68) or $131 in your choice of Gold, Black and Silver, but there’s no word about if this model will be available in other countries.
