Not to mention, they already have a decent line-up of TVs as well as UHD Players (two so far) out. Oh did I mention all the streaming content for DV along with most movies releasing in DV in theater these days? HDR10+ has none of this going on and we don't even know how better the format is as of right now. HDR10+ doesn't have any content out, and most likely won't be produced until the end of this year, no TVs, no UHD player support yet and Samsung's own 2017 TVs won't support HDR10+ in physical media, that's planned for 2018. Who knows, by the time HDR10+ is ready, DV might go free anyways.
Everyone is severely overrating the 'open source' thing that comes with HDR10.
Dolby has a deal in place with, what, 3 or 4 major Hollywood studios that will put out DV discs starting this year.
Dolby is also what filmmakers use to master their films for the Dolby Cinema experience.
All this does, to me, is further reiterate how stubborn Samsung is as a company. They'll take HDR10+, brand it with a fancy new term, and attempt to sell it as this superior HDR format even though it's not (dynamic HDR is still 10-bit).
With Dolby Vision, they can continue to sell the 12-bit color gamut going forward as panels rapidly improve in the color departments.
This isn't HD-DVD vs. Blu-Ray.
HDR10 and Dolby Vision are both probably going to co-exist, if not for the entirety of this HDR revolution, for at least the foreseeable future.
