The famous tipster @evleaks has delivered another interesting spy shot. This time it’s a blurry live picture of Samsung’s first Tizen device – the SM-Z9005, codenamed Redwood.
We already got a glimpse of the SM-Z9005 Redwood specs – a dual-core Krait processor, 1GB of RAM, a 720p display and LTE connectivity. It’s unclear if this is the final hardware though.
Reportedly Samsung has already shipped Z9005 units to developers. We even saw a hands-on video of the device a while ago. The Z9005 model demoed in the video features the familiar boxy prototype design instead in order to keep the real deal under wraps.
Anyway, today we get to see the real design of the Z9005 Redwood. It looks a lot like Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Active – note that opened plastic lid at the bottom.
Six days ago Samsung announced it is scrapping the plans of releasing a Tizen-powered smartphones in the first half of this year in “several countries, including Korea and Russia”. Even though it is delaying Tizen, Samsung has already scheduled a Tizen press event ahead of the MWC in Barcelona next month. We’ll be there to cover it, of course, and will bring you the news as they come.
