After putting an end to the rumours hinting Samsung will launch its new Tizen-run Z1 on January 18, the company has finally sent out an official invite for an event to be held in Delhi today. According to the previous reports, the device might be priced below Rs 6,000.

The Tizen-based Z1 is expected to be available through an array of online retailers as well as through Samsung’s existing sales chains.

The Z1 Tizen phone might have a 4-inch display with a resolution of 480×800 pixel, it will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Spreadtrum SC7727S processor coupled with 512MB of RAM. It will have 3G, dual SIM capabilities, GPS/A-GPS, GLONASS and 802.11n Wi-fi. It will run Tizen v2.3 out of the box.

On the camera wagon, the Z1 might sport a 3.2MP rear camera with LED flash and a VGA front facing camera. The Z1 will have a small 1500 mAh battery.

Looking at the pricing, the Samsung Z1 Tizen phone will be competing with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 1S or Asus Zenfone 4.  It is targeted at the entry-level segment of the market.

Tizen is Samsung and Intel’s co-developed operating system which aims to reduce dependency on Google’s Android platform.
