Samsung goes big on smart fridges with 10 new models

With Family Hub 2.0, you can do more on the fridges' 21.5-inch Tizen-powered screens.


Samsung must have done alright with its crazy WiFi-connected smart fridges last year, because it's launching six more in 2017, for a total of 10. That includes both three-door, four-door and four-door "flex" models with dual freezers (shown above). It's also updated the fridge's OS to Family Hub 2.0 with a new interface that lets everyone have a profile, complete with avatar. From there, you can share photos, calendars and handwritten memos on your fridge's giant 21.5-inch LED touchscreen. Voice control and entertainment apps like Pandora are on offer as well.

As before, the Tizen-powered fridges can take a picture of their contents each time you open the door, and let you replenish stocks using "Groceries by MasterCard." Taking a page from Amazon's Alexa, they can also read out recipes via the AllRecipes-powered app, and run apps like Spotify, GrubHub and Glympse. Using voice control, you can run apps, get the weather and update grocery lists, for instance.

Samsung didn't say exactly which models are coming, how much they cost or even what regular refrigerator-type features they have. However, last year's Family Hub 1.0 model, when it finally came out in May, cost $6,000, so we assume it can do pretty much everything you'd want. Hopefully with 10 models in total, some will be more affordable -- naturally, we'll try to get a look during the show and ask Samsung for ourselves.
