Samsung Electronics Australia has released its largest smart fridge yet (SRF825BFH4), which offers 825L of space and is powered by the new Family Hub 4.0 platform.
The new SRF825BFH4 features a convertible fridge/freezer space and integrated premium speakers, now available from Harvey Norman, The Good Guys and Bing Lee for $7,499.
As for the new Family Hub update, it builds on Samsung’s existing connected ecosystem of products and services to give users the power to control a wider range of connected devices directly from the kitchen.
Family Hub 4.0 enhances the connected home experience through phone mirroring support, which allows the Family Hub to answer calls and control third-party apps from a compatible Galaxy S smartphone.
In addition to the updates to the ‘swipe down’ to View Inside functionality, healthy recipes and shopping lists, there is also the ability to tag items with reminders and expiration dates.
Users also have the ability to use Bixby voice command to assist and help with a range of day-to-day tasks, or connect the family by sharing notes, pictures, videos and music via the new Family Board functionality.
“We’re harnessing the best in Samsung software and hardware innovation to deliver a beautifully designed refrigerator to help make day-to-day family management easier,” said Jeremy Senior, head of consumer electronics, Samsung Electronics Australia.
“We’ve been developing and refining the Family Hub since 2015, which uniquely positions us to respond to Australians’ feedback, offering an amazing smart fridge experience that continues to meet the needs of Australian’s busy lifestyles.”
Current Family Hub users can upgrade to the new 4.0 software now.
