Samsung’s New Smart TVs Will Run Tizen OS


Building our Smart Platform around Tizen is a groundbreaking step towards a much more intelligent and integrated system," said Won Jin Lee, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "Tizen not only enriches the entertainment experience for our customers today, but unlocks great potential for the future in home entertainment."

Tizen televisions will now use Wi-Fi Direct tech, making it easier to share content shared from a mobile device to a TV and vice-versa with just one click.

As speculated last week, the new range of smart TVs will also come with the PlayStation Now app, allowing users to play end number of PS3 games to be streamed to the television using the Dualshock 4 controller.

Furthermore, it's also feature popular third-party apps which include Just Dance Now, Bingo HOME: Race to Earth, among others.

Tizen operating system (OS) was originally created to uplift Samsung's chances in the handset business.

So far, Samsung hasn't announced the Tizen-powered televisions yet, but the company is expected to showcase the entire range at the upcoming CES in Las Vegas.
