For the more high-end F7500, F8000 and F8500, Advanced Smart Interaction allows viewers to use everyday language and casual gestures to find content or command and control the TV.
SmartView allows users to move their content seamlessly between devices in real-time while AllShare connects the TV to compatible mobile devices wirelessly and creates a smart centre for media and whole-home automation.
The display on compatible Samsung GALAXY tablets and phones can also be mirrored onto the TVs for lean-back viewing comfort.
“By partnering various content producers including MediaCorp, SingTel and StarHub, we offer additional content choices for consumers in Singapore,” said Irene Ng, Vice President of Marketing, Samsung Asia.
Existing owners of Samsung’s 2012 flagship Premium TVs (from ES7500 upwards) are not left out.
Slotting in an Evolution Kit offers both software and hardware updates that include access to the 2013 Smart Hub and other Smart features, and upgrades the TV’s dual-core processor to quad-core, resulting in faster internal processing speeds.
