Samsung unveiled their Tizen based TVs at CES 2015, and today they have gone on-sale in South Korea. This initial batch comes in four sizes — 55, 65, 78 and 88 inches. The 55-inch version is priced at 5.49 million won (US$5,038), with SUHD TV’s having the capability of display over 1 billion colors, 64 times more than the existing models.
The company has said it will continue to promote the Tizen operating system by eventually applying it to all other consumer electronics for a fully connected platform.
The Tizen TV has a central position in Samsung’s Internet of Things (IoT) strategy, as it can be a central hub that connects other products to it. We are expecting to see the SUHD lineup to be launched in the U.S., Russia and Europe in the near future.
