Samsung updates Family Hub for connected fridges


Another highlighting display of technology in this year's CES by Samsung was the new gaming monitors. It occupies minimal screen real estate and is arguably less distracting than a notch. The company has just introduced its new Family Hub refrigerator and Samsung WF6300R washer. All of this can be done right from the SmartThings app on the mobile phone.

Samsung plans to release one million foldable phones within the first half of this year, and consider churning out more, if market reaction turns out favourable.

The trio of Samsung Galaxy S10 phones - the Samsung S10, S10 Plus and S10 Lite - are scheduled for an official launch at an event in San Francisco a week ahead of MWC 2019, which kicks off in Barcelona on Monday 25 February. The company expects the assistant will continue as more partners, such as Google, join the ecosystem. "More impressively, their QLED TV lineup took a giant step forward with the announcement of the 98" QLED 8K TV.

If your dream home involves a big screen on your fridge, then Family Hub is for you.

Every year CES brings impressive new products with new technological breakthroughs in the field of smart appliances and AI. The new Communal Screen serves each family member in a highly personal way with a home screen that has been redesigned to maximize aesthetics, functionality, and connectivity. With Bixby, users can also control its smart features like getting recommendations for the best wash cycle, scheduling a cycle to be completed at a users' preferred time, automatically connecting the dryer cycle when the washer is done, or monitoring usage to efficiently manage their laundry appliances. Tthe current S9 is 5.8 inches, though, with the smaller bezels on the upcoming models, Samsung will be able to accommodate a larger screen in a similarly-sized chassis. For gamers, Samsung announced the Notebook Odyssey, a powerful laptop utilizing Nvidia's new GeForce RTX 2080.

Previously, Samsung's best estimate was sometime in 2019, which, together with a rumor that the company hasn't even decided on a final design for the foldable phone, did not instill optimism.

Samsungs connected living innovations will be available this spring.
