Samsung Bespoke 4-Door Flex refrigerator
The company’s latest version of Bespoke refrigerators comes with changeable panels and customers have the option to pick the color they want. This also allows customers to change the fridge form and function. The new fridge also comes with a Beverage Center that gives quick access to a water dispenser and an automatically filled water pitcher. There’s also a dual auto ice maker in this setup.
11-inch MICRO LED
Samsung’s new 11-inch Micro LED comes with a slim and bezel-less Infinity screen that Samsung says offers an immersive viewing experience. The new micro LED also adds “4Vue” (Quad View) what the company calls a four-way viewing option. This gives you the chance to play games, watch TV and do more, all at the same time.
JetBot 90 AI+
The new vacuum cleaner uses object recognition to identify and classify objects so that it can track the best cleaning path. It comes with LiDAR and 3D sensors that allow it to avoid cables and little objects. It also comes with a camera integrated with Samsung’s SmartThings that can help you monitor our homes.
Samsung Bot Care
The Bot Care is the latest addition to Samsung cleaning lineup which acts as both a robotic assistant and companion. The robot has also been designed to learn your schedule and habits and send reminders to help you throughout the day.
Samsung Bot Handy
This one looks straight out a Tesla factory. The robot relies on AI to recognize and pick up objects of various sizes, shapes and weights and helps you around the house. Samsung says that the new robot will be able to tell the difference between the material composition of different objects.
Samsung also made announcements about its upcycling program called Galaxy Upcycling at Home where people can trade in their older Galaxy smartphones and in exchange get options on how they might be able to repurpose their device.
It also announced that its ego-packaging program would be extended to its QLED, UHD TV, monitor, and audio lineup in 2021.
