First images of Samsung’s Tizen smartphone leaked

Images of Samsung’s first Tizen smartphone have been leaked online.

The picture is said to show the Samsung ZE-Q9000 Tizen smartphone. It was published online by Korean website MovePlayer, who cited an anonymous source.

According to the source, the range could launch under the brand Zeke. Samsung allegedly filed a trademark request for that name in August.

It is not possible to verify whether the image is genuine or a fake. However, the phone looks very much like Samsung’s current range of phones.

The version of Tizen shown in the screenshot is also very similar to the images leaked in December. Those pictures showed what the latest version of Tizen – 2.1 – look like currently.

In addition to leaking an image of the phone and claiming that it will be branded Zeke, the source also gave details of the handset’s specifications.

The Zeke will reportedly launch with a 4.8-inch high definition display and a Qualcomm 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, according to MovePlayer. It also claims that the phone will be slightly smaller than Samsung’s current flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4.

The leak comes just days after Japanese network NTT Domoco reportedly cancelled the launch of what would have been the world’s first Tizen-based smartphone.

According to sources within the company, the decision was made after it realised there was little chance of Tizen successfully competing against Google’sAndroid and Apple’s iOS platforms.

Both Samsung and Intel have confirmed that there will be a number of Tizen-based smartphones on show at Mobile World Congress next month.

  1. I really hope this has new functions that will be beneficial to most people. Recent smartphones launched focus on screen display, size, and shape.
