At the Tizen Developers Conference in San Francisco, Samsung made official announcements regarding its plans to release Tizen 4.0 OS and Tizen RT, as well as the ARTIK 053 module, a lightweight IoT SoC.The extended version of Tizen OS known as Tizen RT, where RT stands for “real-time,” is intended for small devices such as televisions, thermostats, light bulbs, and others.
Tizen is the most successful Linux-based embedded operating system in the world thanks to its track record of sales growth and adoption as the operating system for nearly all of Samsung’s products since its launch.According to Hyogun Lee’s statement, “We expect Tizen to open new opportunities for the future of IoT” in addition to open collaborations as we enter the IoT era.Lee is the Chair of the Tizen Technical Steering Group at Samsung Electronics and the executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business.

In addition, Samsung will announce the ARTIK 053 module, a lightweight Internet of Things SoC that integrates real-time processing and runs on the Tizen RT, a first of its kind.Despite the fact that the company developed Tizen OS primarily to run smartphone systems, Tizen OS gained widespread acceptance in the wearable product category over time.According to reports, Tizen outpaced Android Wear in global markets in the first quarter of 2017.
The QLED TV, the Frame, and the IoT-integrated Family Hub 2.0 will also be unveiled by Samsung at TDC 2017.
