Samsung-Galaxy-S5-Tizen

Although this does mean that Samsung is testing its Tizen operating system on the Samsung Galaxy S5, it doesn’t mean that the Korean tech giant will be launching a Tizen-powered S5 just yet. However, with Samsung is testing Tizen on the S5, this could suggests that the Korean device maker is planning to launch a Tizen-powered smartphone with similar hardware as the S5.
