    Samsung confirms its Tizen smartphone is delayed… again

    Well, Samsung just can't seem to catch a break with Tizen, as the first commercial smartphone running on the new OS has been delayed once again. NTT DoCoMo recently scrapped plans for its Tizen phone, and it looks like even Samsung isn't ready to release one just yet. “It is true that the release has been delayed,” said one official at Samsung Electronics’ Media Solution Center (MSC) today in Korea. “Previously we did had planned to release in the first half of this year in several countries, including Korea and Russia.”

    Samsung had recently said that the first Tizen phone would be unveiled on February 23rd, but that date is now being rumored to be the one when Samsung will announce the Galaxy S5 instead. It's unclear what is causing the delays, though it could be that the company doesn't want to take any limelight away from its Android flagship, which is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated smartphones ever (well, that's usually the case with every Galaxy S flagship), or it could be because of obstacles they've run into while trying to develop the OS.

    Either way, it looks like those looking forward to trying out Tizen will have wait a few months, or maybe until the next year.
