What would we be doing if it wasn’t for the leaks and Google Translate? Samsung might be releasing Samsung Galaxy Z, a Galaxy series phone which has slightly lesser specifications than Samsung Galaxy S2. Galaxy Z is definitely no ersatz for Galaxy S2. At best, Galaxy Z will be catering to a price conscious segment. HTC has done it with its Desire, Desire HD and Desire Z phone models and Wildfire and Wildfire S models.
Samsung Galaxy Z has a 4.2 inch Super Clear LCD display with 480×800 resolution, 1 GHz dual core processor, 5 megapixel camera, 8GB memory, support for a 32 GB micro SD card and FM radio. From the numbers of the Swedish site, it could be having 540 minutes of talk time and 620 hours of standby time. WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth are onboard.
Samsung Galaxy Z vs Samsung Galaxy S2
Samsung has shaved off every parameter from Galaxy S2 to come up with Galaxy Z.
Screen : Galaxy S2 is a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus, while Galaxy Z has a 4.2 inch SLCD screen.
Camera : Galaxy S2 has a 8 megapixel camera and a front-facing 2 megapixel camera. Galaxy Z has 5 megapixel camera and no front-facing camera.
Processor : Both have dual core processors but Galaxy S2 has a 1.2GHz and Galaxy Z has a 1 GHz processor.
Those are the three glaring differences from what was leaked or inferred so far.
Success of Galaxy Z depends on its price. A straight conversion from the Swedish price gives a Indian price of Rs. 26000. LG Optimus Black has slightly better configuration on almost all the key criteria except for a dual core processor. Optimus Black costs Rs. 19K.
Do you think Samsung’s strategy would work?
