Samsung Presents Vision for Future Consumer Electronics at CES 2012

Today, Samsung showcased quite a number of items at CES 2012. Just received their Press Release. I copied a summary of their gadgets. Some of them are already announced (e.g. Galaxy Tab 7.7). More information and PR after the break.


Samsung plans to continue its leadership in the Smart TV category with three driving philosophies for a Smarter Life: Smart Interaction, Smart Content and Smart Evolution – all of which arm consumers with the future of Smart TV technology, today.

  • Smart Interaction: Consumers may simply say “Hi TV” to turn on voice control, speak “Web Browser” to get online; browse and select results or increase the volume by just pointing a hand.
  • Smart Content: Three new exclusive services – Family Story, Fitness and Kids – will enable families to share photos and messages with each other, easily sync their fitness goals and activities, and help kids partake in educational viewing.
  • Smart Evolution:  Select 2012 or newer Smart TVs will be packed with necessary hardware and software each year using Samsung’s proprietary system-on-chip technology, bringing enhancements to content and performance.
  • ES8000 LED TV: Powered by a dual-core processor, users can surf the web while using or downloading multiple apps simultaneously
  • Super OLED TV: Samsung’s proprietary Super OLED technology incorporates the ultimate in vividness, speed and thinness, with true-to-life picture quality, enhanced color accuracy and motion picture quality even in the fastest scenes.


Samsung Electronics is responding to growing consumer demand for integrated Wi-Fi enabled cameras that allow users to email photos or share them on social networks.

  • The WM850F is a Wi-Fi-enabled long-zoom camera boasting a 21x super zoom, with added fun features, such as GPS and Live Landmark, making it the latest must-have travel companion.
  • Innovative new SMART Wi-Fi technology makes it  simpler and less time-intensive to synchronise pictures from their camera to other devices in real time, as well as share them instantly through email or social networking sites.


  • The next generation Series 9 Notebook is 21% thinner and 28% smaller than its predecessor, thus being the thinnest premium notebook on the market.
  • The Series 5 ULTRA, an ultrabook that comes in 13.3” or 14” size – features category exlusives such as DVD drive and storage of 500GB HDD complemented with 16 GB SSD ExpressCache to ensure improved speeds when executed everyday tasks like web browsing.

Mobile Phones

  • The Galaxy Tab™ 7.7 is the thinnest, lightest and most portable Honeycomb tablet on the market today. It is also the first tablet to feature the Super AMOLED Plus Display.
  • The Galaxy Note, an expansive high-resolution smart screen that ensures smartphone portability and on the go usability, was successfully introduced across the globe in Europe, Asia, Middle East, China and Korea.

Home Appliances

  • WiFi-enabled WF457 washer is equipped with a Smart Control system, allowing consumers to monitor cycle selections and remaining time as well as receive an alert when the load is complete via a mobile application.
