Samsung curved monitorWorld’s first curved Quantum dot PC monitors

Samsung hosted its 2016 IFA press conference at CityCube at Messe Berlin, revealing its latest Quantum dot TV, the 88 inch KS9800, with a new 10-year warranty, as well as the world’s first curved Quantum dot PC monitors: the CF791, with a 34-inch Ultra Wide QHD screen and the CFG70, the first curved monitor with a one millisecond moving picture response time and 144 hertz refresh rate.

The Samsung CF791 34-inch Quantum Dot curved monitor will be available in Australia later this year with local pricing and availability to be announced closer to the launch date. However, Samsung has no plans to locally launch the CFG70 24-inch and 27-inch Quantum Dot curved monitors.

Samsung also showcased its HW-K950 soundbar which is the company’s first to feature Dolby Atmos technology, and the industry’s first soundbar package to include two Dolby Atmos-enabled wireless rear speakers.

Samsung vice president of consumer electronics, Carl Rose said: “Samsung’s entire range of TVs and audio products are built on years of research and development in exploring the best forms of home entertainment technology. Samsung’s Quantum Dot technology used across our latest range of TVs delivers virtually true-to-life colour reproduction and outstanding brightness”.

Over the last three years, Samsung’s home appliance business has grown approximately five times faster than the rest of the industry in Europe. The success of new products such as AddWash, first revealed at IFA 2015, have made Samsung the number one premium washing machine brand in France, Poland, Italy and the UK. At IFA 2016, Samsung announced two new AddWash products – the AddWash Combo, which eliminates the need to purchase a separate dryer, and the AddWash Slim, which can fit into a smaller space without compromising on load size.

Samsung head of home appliances, Mike Lilly said: “2016 has marked a significant stage for our appliances offering in Australia. We have created two new categories in the development of the AddWash washing machine range, an Australian-inspired innovation, as well as the connected Family Hub refrigerator.”

“AddWash launched in Australia earlier this year and has been exceptionally well received by consumers. We are expanding the range to meet demand for size variations from larger capacity, right down to smaller formats for urban apartment living, as well as two washer dryer combos,” he said.

“Samsung will bring the connected Family Hub refrigerator to Australia this month, designed to deliver convenience. Not only will it keep food fresh, it will give people peace of mind and the power to order food on the spot for delivery direct to their home,” he added.

It allows users to manage schedules, communicate between one another, along with entertainment through screen mirroring and in-built audio, and, the interior cameras mean users can check what is in their fridge from their connected device, while they are out shopping for groceries.
