Samsung launches first Tizen-powered ultra HD TVs

TizenSamsung has launched its first Tizen-powered ultra HD TVs in its home market of Korea. 

Samsung is selling four models of TV with the Tizen operating system it originally developed as a rival to Android in the mobile phone world, with screen sizes ranging from 55-inches to 88-inches. The smallest model currently costs KRW5.49 million (€4,400).

The launch follows the announcement by Samsung in January that its entire range of smart TVs for 2015 would be Tizen-powered.

The Tizen initiative has suffered from delays and strategy shifts. Last year, Samsung unveiled plans to target emerging markets with Tizen-based phones and launched a number of digital cameras and smart watches based on the software.
