RumorTT: Samsung to use its Tizen OS on its TVs next year

RumorTT: Samsung to feature its Tizen OS on its range of TVs next year (KRX:005930, NASDAQ:INTC)

According to CNET, the open-source OS known as Tizen, would be featured on Samsung's range of TVs in 2014. Co-CEO of Samsung, Boo-Keun Yoon, has confirmed that the open-source OS will work with mobile devices, TVs and appliances, too.




Rewinding back to 2011, where Intel and Samsung joined forces to work on Tizen, with the first release arriving in January of 2012. Intel is working away on its own Tizen-powered devices, but Samsung has been hush-hush about any Tizen devices. I would say this is because of its tight relationship and massive reliance on Google's mobile OS, Android.


The current Samsung Smart TVs, one of which I own, are bloated and slow. Tizen could change all of this, in the hopes of a faster, and smarter TV for Samsung and its consumers in 2014.
