[Tizen General] [Dev] Porting Tizen 5.0 to Galaxy Smartphones

Hi,

Thank you. Your comments provide valuable insight into challenges of
porting Tizen OS.
Could you please introduce one of the latest Galaxy smartphone (including
S, A, or J series) on which Tizen was ported?
Tizen has not officially been ported on any smartphone since 2017. Does it
mean Tizen's community plans not to target smartphones anymore? Is it
accurate deduction?

Regards,
Raouf
