Launched in 2015, Tizen OS quickly became a giant, but summing up what is Tizen OS? Well, it’s a Linux-based operating system that was built in an open source environment, which means it’s even available to developers and device manufacturers all over the world.

It is based on Linux Kernel and developed by the Linux Foundation in partnership with Samsung, Panasonic and Intel to work on smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, netbooks, vehicles and all other types of systems. For application creation, Tizen facilitates the development of native applications, without neglecting the flexibility of using HTML.

Samsung TV Plus is one of the reasons so many people gravitate to the company’s smart TVs and the Tizen platform. TV Plus is available for free to any Samsung SMART TV owner and gives access to over 1,000 channels
in more than 23 countries around the world.

The Samsung Art Store and the friendly Tizen OS user interface are two other factors that have contributed to the platform’s success. Although Tizen will be replaced by Wear OS on galaxy smartwatches later this year, the company has no plans to abandon the software platform for its SMART TV business.

On the contrary, the Tizen OS for Samsung’s smart TVs is apparently here to stay, and today, the company has reminded us of the platform’s achievements through a new infographic. Check out Samsung infographics for more details.

Samsung’s first smart TV powered by Tizen OS was launched in 2015 and was followed by a variety of models across all different segments and price ranges. The company released its first ‘lifestyle TV’ powered by Tizen OS as well
like your Art Store in 2017.

Samsung sold 300 million TIzen OS-powered TVs, monitors and signage products from 2015 to 2020. As of last year, there were more than 190 million Tizen OS smart TV users in 197 countries.
