We first heard about Samsung plans to launch a Google TV in late 2011. Since then we have not heard much news but Google now says that Samsung’s Google TV will launch in late 2012.
Samsung Google TV in 2012
Samsung plans to introduce a Smart TV based on the Google TV platform later this year. Google TV offers access to video services, TV apps and integration with Android smartphones and tablets.
Samsung’s Google TV is coming in 2012 says Google. This is a photoshopped picture not an official press
Samsung commented on the rumors some time ago by saying that their Google TV will come with both Google and Samsung premium services, which probably means that Samsung plans to add a skin on top of the Google TV platform just like on their Galaxy smartphones.
We do not know when to expect the TV but we hear that the TV is actually hidden in a corner of the IFA 2012 show so FlatpanelsHD will try to get some hands-on impressions for you soon.
