Samsung Galaxy S5 tipped to launch in both Android and Tizen forms

Samsung Galaxy S5 rumours are heating up, with latest reports suggesting that the Korean manufacturer’s next-generation flagship phone will be released in both Android and Tizen flavoured forms.

While Samsung’s flagship smartphone line, including the current Samsung Galaxy S4 are all powered by Google’s Android OS, it has been suggested that with the company working on its own Tizen operating system, next year’s Samsung Galaxy S5 could be made available with two different operating systems.

A potentially risky move that could harm sales and kill off the Tizen OS before its found its footing, a dual OS handset is just the latest in a growing line of Samsung Galaxy S5 rumours.

Although claims of a Tizen powered Samsung Galaxy S5 are far from confirmed, Samsung co-CEO Boo-Keun Yoon recently suggested that the company would use its Tizen software to create a uniform and connected experience between all Samsung products.

Further Samsung Galaxy S5 rumours highlighted in recent reports include the Android version of the handset being powered by the recently confirmed Android 4.4 KitKat. Expected to launch in October alongside the Google Nexus 5, Android KitKat will bring a raft of updates to the dominant mobile OS.

With the Samsung Galaxy S4 having come under criticism for its plastic form factor, it has been suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will benefit from a new metal build, similar to that of the iPhone 5S or HTC One.

Elsewhere, the Samsung Galaxy S5 camera will add optical image stabilisation to an enlarged sensor and higher megapixel shooting as it looks to rival improvements made by the LG G2.
