The new Z3 Corporate Edition comes with some differences compared to the Z3 launched last year. This version is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8916 (SD410), a chipset that supports 4G LTE, and it has received SAFE certification for business use in Russia. On the other hand, last year’s model ran on a 1.3GHz Spreadtrum processor, which was only 3G compatible.

The handset features a 5.0-inch HD Super AMOLED display and only 1GB of RAM, with the screen size and RAM capacity being the same as on the Z3 model. The phone has only 8GB of internal memory, which can be expanded to 128GB using a microSD card.
Rear camera capacity reaches 8MP with f/2.2 aperture while the front camera capacity is 5MP with the same aperture. The device runs on Tizen OS 2.4, with Tizen UX 2015 graphical interface. Then, the battery capacity reaches 2,600mAh, and two SIM cards are supported.
