Tizen-Based Samsung ZeQ Leaks in New Photos, Might Never Arrive

One of the handsets that has been rumored several months ago to arrive on the market this year was a Samsung smartphone running under Tizen and featuring model number SC-03F, which has emerged in newly leaked photos, but might never be officially released.

The smartphone passed through the FCC certification process about six months ago, and photos of it have emerged from the feds now, as the confidentiality period for the filing has expired. As SammyToday notes, the handset was expected to become available for purchase in Japan on the network of NTT DoCoMo sometime in January, yet it has been delayed indefinitely. Some suggested that it could never materialize into a commercially available product. The handset is allegedly called Samsung ZeQ and, as the leaked images show, it sports a design highly similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S4. In fact, the hardware specs announced for it suggested that it was nothing more than a Tizen-based flavor of last year’s flagship.

For those out of the loop, we should note that the mobile phone was expected to arrive on the market with a 4.8-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering a 720p resolution, as well as with a Snapdragon 800 processor inside. Moreover, the mobile phone was said to include a rear camera with LED flash and to be powered by a 2600mAh battery. As you can see from these specs, the unannounced Tizen smartphone was indeed poised to land on shelves as a new flavor of the Galaxy S4, featuring only a small set of design changes, along with a brand new OS loaded on top.
