South Korean tech giant Samsung has recently announced a new mid-range mobile Samsung Z5. The concept of this budget phone was unveiled last year and for unknown reasons, the release got delayed.

Tizen OS, HD Super AMOLED display, 13MP primary camera
16GB internal memory, non-removable battery
The Samsung Z5 packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Quad-core processor. The Graphics Processing Unit of the Z5 is Mali-400MP2. Also, the processor speed of 1.3GHz does justice while playing mid-level graphics games. The Samsung Z5 runs on Tizen OS v3.0.
The Samsung Z5 comes with a 13MP primary camera which has auto focus and auto flash features. The image resolution of the primary camera is 1920x1080p (Full HD), which is pretty good for this price. But the rear camera lacks Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) which means that blurs are inevitable. The front camera is a standard 5MP shooter which doesn’t have flash or OIS features.
The Samsung Z5 is powered by a 3000 mAh non-removable Li-ion battery. The Z5 battery does not support Quick Charging and Wireless charging. At this price point, a 3000 mAh battery is impressive. The 3000 mAh battery ensures that your device is powered for longer durations of time.
Design and Display:
The Samsung Z5 comes in Black and Gold colors. The 5.5-inch large HD Super AMOLED display is a boon to the Z5. This top-notch display, which is quite impressive in lucidity, is only available for the likes of Samsung Galaxy S7 edge until now.

However, at this price point, there is nothing worth complaining as its competitors offer less or no dependable storage.
Additional features of the Samsung Z5 include an Accelerometer, a light sensor, and a proximity sensor. According to the reports, the Samsung Z5 price in India will be around Rs 7000. Coming to the connectivity of the Z5, it supports dual SIM (Micro+Micro), Bluetooth v4.1, and up to 4G. This could be one of the best budget Samsung 4g mobile phone in 2018 once released.
