Tizen (/ˈtzɛn/) is an operating system based on the Linux kernel and the GNU C Library implementing the Linux API. It works on a wide range of devices, including smartphones, tablets, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) devices, smart TVs, PCs, smart cameras, wearable computing (such as smartwatches), Blu-ray players, printers and smart home appliances[3] (such as refrigerators, lighting, washing machines, air conditioners, ovens/microwaves and a robotic vacuum cleaner[4]). Its purpose is to offer a consistent user experience across devices. Tizen is a project within the Linux Foundation and is governed by a Technical Steering Group (TSG).

The Tizen Association was formed to guide the industry role of Tizen, including requirements gathering, identifying and facilitating service models, and overall industry marketing and education.[5]

Members of the Tizen Association represent major sectors of the mobility industry, from numerous areas of the world. Current members include telecommunications network operators and electronics manufacturers: Fujitsu, Huawei, Intel, KT, NEC Casio, NTT DoCoMo, Orange, Panasonic, Samsung, SK Telecom, Sprint and Vodafone.[6] While the Tizen Association decides what needs to be done in Tizen, the Technical Steering Group determines what code is actually incorporated into the operating system to accomplish those goals. Tizen roots back to the Samsung Linux Platform (SLP) and the LiMo Project and in 2013 Samsung merged its homegrown Bada project into Tizen.[7]

The first week of October 2013, Samsung's NX300M smart camera became the first consumer product based on Tizen; it was sold in South Korea for a month before its OS was revealed at the Tizen Developer Summit,[8][9][10] then became available for pre-order in the United States in early 2014 with a release date of March 1. The first Tizen tablet was announced by Systena in June 2013, a 10-inch quad-core ARM with 1920×1200 resolution that was eventually shipped in late October 2013 as part of a development kit exclusive to Japan.[11][12][13] The Samsung Gear 2 smartwatch, released in April 2014, uses Tizen.[14]

Samsung released the Tizen-based Samsung Z1 smartphone to the Indian market in January 2015.[15] It was followed by the Samsung Z3 in October.

      Hi guys,
      The first Tizen phone, the Samsung Z1, will be released in India next month. According to another report Samsung intends to release the Tizen smartphone initially in India, but then will also launch in China in February 2015, shortly followed in Korea in the first half of 2015.

      The price would be less than 100.000 Korean won = 75 euro = 90 US dollar = 5.700 Indian rupee
      Will you buy one ?

      Samsung’s Smart Monitor range is expanding this week, with a new 43-inch 4K M7 model and a smaller, 24-inch M5 model with 1080p resolution. The key thing that sets these monitors apart is the introduction of Smart TV technology, powered by Samsung’s own Tizen processors.
      Samsung wants these to be “do-it-all” displays, good for work, gaming and general entertainment, which will be accessible through a Smart TV style UI with support for apps like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. These Smart Monitors also feature apps for remote desktop connections and productivity apps like Microsoft Office. This functionality essentially turns the monitor into its own all-in-one computer.
      Samsung now has Smart Monitors in 43-inch and 32-inch 4K options, as well as 1080p versions from 24-inches up to 32-inches, with prices starting at $229.99.

      As users around the world spend more and more time at home, being able to enjoy top-quality home entertainment has become an absolute must. Understanding that users need to do more these days with their TVs, the Samsung Smart TV lets users enjoy their favorite video content, game on their own terms and even undertake personalized at-home workouts.
       
      The hidden secret behind the multifaceted offering of the Samsung Smart TV is Samsung Electronics’ smart operating system (OS) Tizen. Tizen is a Linux-based, open-sourced web OS that is open to everyone, and supports a range of devices including TVs, mobile devices, home appliances and even signage.
       
      As of now, over 190 million people in 197 countries around the world are enjoying Tizen OS through their Samsung Smart TVs – though given the TV’s communal role in the family space, the number of actual users is expected to be much more. Tizen is a platform that truly encompasses Samsung’s user-driven values of “Screens Everywhere” and “Screens for All”, and the company is set to further expand the Tizen experience through collaboration across various fields including those of video, art and gaming.

      At I/O 2021, Google announced the next version of Wear OS. The company teamed up with Samsung and merged Tizen with Wear OS for the latest generation of its wearable OS to fix all its shortcomings.

      This led to speculation that Samsung could also ditch Tizen in favor of Android TV for its smart TVs. However, that will not happen as Samsung intends to continue using Tizen OS for its smart TVs.
      Samsung Prefers Tizen to Android TV
      Despite Android TV rapidly gaining popularity and becoming the default OS of choice for the majority of smart TVs out there, Samsung has decided to stick to Tizen for its smart TVs. The company confirmed in a statement to Protocol that "Tizen still is the default platform for our smart TVs going forward."
      Samsung has been using Tizen on its Gear and Galaxy-branded wearables for years. However, with the OS now merged with Wear OS, the chances of the company launching any more Galaxy smartwatches running Tizen are pretty much nil.
      Apart from Samsung, LG is the other major TV OEM that does not ship its smart TVs with Android TV. Instead, it uses WebOS for its TVs. Samsung also used Tizen on its Z series of smartphones, though the lineup was discontinued after failing to gain traction among consumers.

      Hi everyone,
      I would need your help because I'm searching all the way how I can install Linux on the Samsung Flip Board LH55WMHPTWC in order to make it more useful because today, it's not. Even combined with the Airtame 2.
      I don't find the way to get the hidden menu on this device. I guess it's possible with a USB Bootable for Tizen 3.0 but didn't succeed to make it.
      I hope you can help me guys,
      Florian
