Budget segment smartphones are seeing a huge surge in their demands these days. Smartphone manufacturers are trying their level best to tap into this wonderful opportunity. Samsung is one such smartphone manufacturer that produces all kinds of smartphones. Adding yet another phone to its budget segment of smartphones, Samsung, recently gets its Samsung Z4 cleared by the FCC. The phone will act as the successor to the Samsung Z3. Let’s talk a little more as to what we know about this smartphone and what special qualities will it boast.
If we go according to the leaked images online, it can be observed that the phone has a rectangular design with slightly curved edges. A physical home button has been provided in the phone along with two soft touch capacitive buttons. The power button seems to be provided on the right edge of the phone, while the volume rocker seems to be provided on the left edge of the phone. The 3.5mm earphone jack would be provided on the top edge of the phone and the speaker grille would be located on the bottom edge of the phone. A 5.0-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen would be provided in the phone that would provide a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It is believed that the screen would house approximately 294 ppi pixel density, which would be enough to provide the phone a decent display. The display would be able to provide decent sunlight legibility and amazing viewing angles. Being an entry level smartphone, if the current specifications turn out to be true, then one can expect a pretty decent display in the phone. In the entry level smartphone segment, the display provided in this smartphone will stand-up.
As we just got to know the rudimentary details about this phone, it’s hard to comment as to what kind of processor would be provided in the phone. Its predecessor came with a Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 processor which was backed by a Spreadtrum SC7730 chipset. The previous phone was able to provide a seamless functioning of the phone, however, it struggled to play heavy games and videos. With the new phone, one can easily expect to find better specs in terms of hardware and we believe that the phone will run smoother than ever. The Samsung Z3 came with only 1GB of RAM and we believe that this phone might come with more RAM too. It is believed that the phone would have internal storage of 16GB which could be further expanded up to 256GB using the second SIM card slot provided in the phone. The phone will run on Tizen platform and will feature the latest Tizen OS i.e. version 3.0. The phone shall support dual SIM and there is no news if the phone shall support 4G networks.
Right now there is no concrete information as to what kind of cameras would be provided in the phone. The phone’s predecessor, Samsung Z3, featured an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP front shooter. With this phone one can either find improved camera specs or improved camera sensors. Just like in most smartphones these days, this phone’s camera would also be backed by autofocus and LED flash. The camera would support features like Geo-tagging, face detection, panorama, HDR. Now the previous phone was able to capture good pics but failed miserably when the lighting conditions where not that respectable. The selfie shooter too struggled in terms of good performance. We hope that in the upcoming phone, we would find massive improvements in terms of camera quality. A loudspeaker would also be provided in the phone and so would be a 3.5 mm audio jack.
It is revealed that a 2,050 mAh battery would be provided in the phone. Many reports confirm that the battery would be in fact user replaceable. With the current battery specs, we can expect the battery to work for a day with mixed usage. Talking about the range of connectivity options offered by the phone, it should come with a Wi-Fi 802.11, b/g/n, mobile hotspot, Bluetooth version 4.0, A-GPS, GLONASS, FM Radio and microUSB 2.0. The sensors that are rumored to be provided in the phone would include Accelerometer and proximity.
