Samsung representatives commented on the rumors that the company’s smart TVs will later switch to Android TV.
Recall, the rumors appeared after Google held a presentation, presented an updated platform for wearable devices Wear OS and announced a partnership with Samsung. Now the Samsung Galaxy Watch will run on Wear OS instead of Tizen.
After that, there were suggestions that after the watch from Tizen, Samsung smart TVs will also refuse. But this will not happen, and the company does not plan drastic changes.
“Tizen still is the default platform for our smart TVs going forward,” a Samsung spokesperson said in a comment.
And this is not surprising, because the operating system installed on the TV, unlike a smart watch, does not affect the decisions of most consumers about buying. With such purchases, the size, quality of the display and, above all, the price play a much more important role.
