Representatives from larger overseas carriers including SK Telecom, KT, and LG U+ and all south korean companies are expected to attend the event.
The NTT DoCoMo has recently put on plans to launch a Tizen-based SmartPhone. The conditions surrounding the Japanese smartphone market and the timing arent good right now, Jun Ootori, a spokesman for the Japanese telecommunications giant, said. We havent decided anything about the future but we are working with members of the (Tizen) association. We havent decided on a launch.
The phone is currently known as the Zeq 9000, but the site suggests that the handset may be called 'Zeke' when it launches, because, according to MovePlayer's unnamed source, Samsung filed for the brand name in August.
Zeke is said to be slightly smaller than the Galaxy S4 with a 4.8 inch HD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quadcore processor under the hood. The device seen in this image certainly bears resemblance to Samsungs smartphone language, it appears to be made out of textured plastic, a material that the company has frequently used for other smartphones.
