At the Tizen Developer Conference (TDC) 2017, Samsung Electronics unveiled Tizen 4.0 open source operating system. The Korean tech giant showed off the new version of the Linux-based operating system and said that Tizen 4.0 OS has a wider range of applications to devices.
It should be noted that Tizen 1.0 was announced at TDC 2012; since then, it has touched almost all of Samsung’s products. After bringing Tizen to smartphones, televisions, etc., Samsung is now planning to integrate Tizen 4.0 OS into more household and IoT devices. This will be done with the help of Tizen Real Time (RT).
Samsung has also entered into a collaboration with Microsoft, which allows the developers to easily develop Tizen application with popular programming languages. Specifically, C# developers can make Tizen apps using .NET and Xamarin framework.
To expand Tizen ecosystem, Samsung is strengthening the cooperation with Samsung ARTIK, Broadlink, Commax, and Gympse.
