Samsung fights the Tizen fight
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is one of life's inevitabilities, and it seems like the wheels are well in motion. First we heard that it will most likely come packing a 64-bit processor chip and now it sounds like the phone may offer up both Android and Tizen variations.
Samsung is clearly keen to push Tizen OS but will be keeping a grip on the popular Android interface for the time being, with Android 4.4 KitKat expected to go live October.
Co-CEO of Samsung, Boo-Keun Yoon, said that the plan is to use Tizen on future phones and tablets, with the S5 likely to come in both a Tizen and Android version.

Other rumoured features of the phone include an optical image stabilisation camera and a body built from aluminium and magnesium.
Right now we're expecting Samsung to stick to its cycles and release the Galaxy S5 in March 2014.
