What is going on with Samsung’s Tizen plans? At least, while Tizen seems to pretty clearly have a future with the company’s wearables, popping up most recently on the new Gear S2 and Gear S2 classic, progress has been much slower when it comes to Tizen and smartphones. While we ultimately got the Z1 early this year, we haven’t heard much about plans for a follow-up; there were rumors of work on a Z2 dating back to the spring, with word that the phone might launch during the second half of the year, but it’s been months since we’ve heard anything. As we wait to see what’s happening there, some new evidence suggests Samsung might already be thinking forward to what’s next, and offers a possible sign of a Samsung Z3.

Just today, the FCC published certification paperwork for a new Samsung smartphone, one revealed as model SM-Z300H. Considering how the Z1 was Samsung’s model number SM-Z130H, it’s not hard to see how this phone is being identified as a possible Z3.

While the Z1’s hardware wasn’t much to write home about, there’s a chance the Z3 could be appreciably more powerful, with rumors making the phone out to get a five-inch 720p panel, 1.3GHz quad-core SoC, 1.5GB of RAM, 8MP/5MP camera pair, 8GB of storage, and a 2600mAh battery – not GS6-class by any stretch of the imagination, but a lot more useful-sounding than the four-inch Z1.

Will we get a peek at the Z3 – or any new Tizen phone, for that matter – at IFA this week? Stay tuned to Pocketnow’s coverage to find out.
