Samsung has already had a pretty busy beginning to the year, as the company already announced a slew of new TVs, a Gaming Hub for cloud game streaming, and the Galaxy S21 FE at CES 2022. But the fun hasn’t stopped yet, as Samsung debuted a new line of products, including the all-new Samsung Home Hub. This is an interesting device that is intended to act as a control center for your smart home devices.
The Smart Home Hub sports a massive display, while showing off different sections for you to easily control different accessories and products that are connected to your smart home. According to the press release, Samsung states that the Smart Home Hub combines six different SmartThings accessories into a single device. The interface itself doesn’t look all that different from the SmartThings app that you can download on your Android phone.
But what helps to set this apart is the ability to control all of your devices from a large screen, similar to what you might expect from the new Amazon Echo Show 15. The biggest difference here is that instead of trying to throw a bunch of different apps and screens in your face, the primary focus for the Smart Home Hub is to control your smart home devices. To help grow the number of connected accessories in your home, Samsung also plans to build its SmartThings Hub into “2022 TVs, Smart Monitors and Family Hub refrigerators.”
Unveiled for the first time at CES, the all-new Samsung Home Hub takes connected home experiences to the next level with a SmartThings service that integrates with AI-connected appliances to simplify home management. Samsung Home Hub combines six SmartThings services into one convenient device that gives users complete control over their smart home and makes it easier to manage household chores.
Unfortunately, not much more information was revealed in regards to pricing and availability for the Smart Home Hub. The company stated that it will first arrive in Korea in the first half of 2022. However, we aren’t sure whether this smart display will make its way to other regions, or if it will be limited to being released in Samsung’s home country.
