A new report suggests that Samsung will utilize its custom Tizen operating system on all of its upcoming Smart TVs. This will mean a revamped user interface and added integration with Samsung’s Galaxy devices. These televisions will reportedly come with support for Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy as well, letting you seamlessly pair with smartphones or tablets. WiFi Direct will obviously be supported by these new TVs, which will allow mirroring of content from their devices onto the large screen.
Samsung is invested deeply in the Tizen ecosystem with most of its smartwatches running on the OS. The platform is co developed by Intel, Samsung and a variety of other companies like Huawei, Panasonic etc together and we can expect some decent products to come out in the coming months. So if you’re looking to get a new Smart TV this year, you can be assured that it will be running Tizen OS.
Samsung is expected to show off the PlayStation Now streaming service on its Smart TVs at next week’s CES event, so we can expect to learn more about this newly announced Tizen implementation then.
