Samsung Galaxy S5 coming in January with Tizen not Android?


Samsung is said to be moving up the release date for the successor to its flagship Android, the Galaxy S4, due to the phone’s “sales slump,” according to Korean-language web portal Naver.

The suspected mid-January announcement could coincide with Samsung’s presence at CES 2014.

The Galaxy S5 is expected to level the processor playing field with a 64-bit chip that’s eight cores in all countries this time.

It’s also thought to be Samsung’s first major all-metal smartphone, ditching the cheap plastic of the S4 and the faux-leather plastic casing found in the Galaxy Note 3.

The Galaxy S5 may also run Android and Tizen. Samsung’s homegrown Bada mobile operating system was previously thought of as a backup to Android.
