Earlier this month, we attended the Samsung Forum 2016, where we saw the latest and greatest Samsung kitchen appliances – all slated for sale this year. Their proudest example of culinary technology this year is the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator.
As the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator is not slated for launch until Q2 2016 (Spring 2016 in the US), this is a sneak preview. Check out the video we took of a working example during the recent Samsung Forum 2016!
Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator Quick Look
The Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator is designed to be the centrepiece or hub of your kitchen. It is not just a refrigerator, it is part of the Internet. It is what we call an Internet of Things (IoT) device. All of its IoT (Internet of Things) capabilities are hidden behind the 21.5″ full HD LCD display on its upper right door.
The 21.5″ display is where the magic takes place. It allows you to manage your groceries, pin photos, leave notes as well as post, share and update your family’s activity calendar. This is where your family can coordinate your lives around.
With the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator, you don’t even have to leave home to shop for groceries. You can even place an order with an online grocery shopping partner and pay for it with a Samsung credit card partner using the built-in display. How’s that for convenience?
Of course, if you still prefer to shop at your grocery store, you can use the built-in shopping list feature to manage your groceries. Heck, you can even store your recipes right there!
Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator Availability
The Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator is slated to be available in the United States in the spring of 2016. Global availability will vary from country to country, but look out for it in Q2 2016 onwards. In the US, it will be available in two sizes – Counter Depth and Full Depth, with two colour options – Stainless and Black Stainless
