CES 2019: Samsung debuts next-gen family hub refrigerator

Image Source Mobile Fun

Samsung's Family Hub has become a common feature with CES after having first been announced at the event back in 2016.

At CES this year, behind closed doors, Samsung showed off its foldable smartphone to select clients and said that it is ready to enter mass production.

The interface has been completely redesigned from the ground up. The new SoC brings an integrated neural processing unit (NPU), a custom tri-cluster CPU, an advanced image signal processor, and support for 8K video recording to the table. Embedded with the Quantum Processor 8K chip, the 2019 8K line delivers the best in QLED picture quality, design, smart features in more sizes than ever in stunning 8K resolution. Also, do we really need yet another screen?

Samsung has been upfront about its work on a smartphone that has a folding screen. Not only that, but Samsung will also offer cross-platform interaction with Apple Airplay on its lineup of smart TVs as well as control compatibility with Bixby, Amazon Echo, and Google Home. Bixby now provides a new level of connectivity and intelligence created to make everyday tasks much easier. Bixby can also give suggestions based on only a few prompts.

The screen features a new Family Board function, which can be personalised for different family members.

Bixby control can be used to get a daily news report, and each family member's voice is recognised so can provide content just for them on command. A canvas to share pictures and notes, this can be personalized for each user, family or lifestyle.

Bixby allows for a smarter, hands-free, more personalized way to use the Family Hub. Starting with the Notebook 9 Pro, this laptop was designed for the next generation workforce. It runs on Windows 10 Home, with 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8565U and 256 G worth of storage.

Rumours about Samsung's highly anticipated foldable phone dominated the mobile space in the second half of 2018. What do you think of Samsung's new home appliance offerings? It's low profile arm clamps to a desk and can store flat against the wall. GEMS, unlike the others, was more of an exo-suit made to support the legs, help wearers walk and improve mobility.

Samsung says they are the #1 selling appliance brand in the United States and the fastest growing brand in the last nine years.
