Samsung is working on a new operating system, dubbed Tizen, as an alternative to Android. Samsung has already confirmed that it will be used in smartphones, but Samsung’s CEO now confirms that Samsung is also working on Tizen-based Smart TVs that could arrive in 2014.

Tizen in Samsung's 2014 Smart TV?

Samsung already owns the platform in its current Smart TVs, but Samsung could debut a new OS for Smart TVs as early as 2014.

The goal with Tizen is to create an alternative to Android. Tizen is an open source project, but Samsung and Intel have been the driving forces in development. Samsung hopes to gain better control of the operating system used on its devices, instead of relying on Google’s Android, and has publicly said that they hope to create an operating system that will work on all product categories. They believe that Tizen is the answer.

Samsung’s CEO Boo-Keun Yoon has told Die Welt and CNET that they are currently working on Tizen-based Smart TVs that could debut as soon as 2014. However, he says that the final decision has not been made yet. If Samsung decides to put Tizen in next year’s Smart TV we could see it unveiled at CES 2014 in January 2014 and available to buy by spring 2014. Samsung has also promised to release the first smartphone based on Tizen by the end of 2013.
