The Heart of Every Smart Home: Introducing Samsung’s Next-Generation Family Hub™

Last updated on July 25, 2020

Singapore – 24 July 2020 – Samsung Electronics Singapore has unveiled the new line-up of its Family Hub™ Smart Fridge, with intelligent new features that promise to deliver a more personalised and interactive experience for everyone in the family.

From automated meal planning and recipe suggestions based on personal preferences, to easy control of smart home devices, along with bringing your favourite entertainment experiences into the kitchen, the latest Family Hub™ offers unique experiences like no other fridge in the market.

“We have opened up new possibilities for families to rethink what their fridge can do with the introduction of our new Family Hub™ range. Consumers have asked us for more Family Hub™ options to suit their different lifestyles, and the new line-up offers more new features to help modern families better manage their busy lives in a smart, connected manner. It also allows for families to make mundane chores simple and fun, while creating more opportunities to stay connected to one another,” said Jacqueline Toh, Head of Digital Appliances, Samsung Electronics Singapore.

The Family Hub™ line-up includes two new stylish side-by-side refrigerator models[1] at more affordable price points. Consumers can look forward to expanded storage with SpaceMax Technology™, which utilises thinner walls to create extra storage space whilst ensuring optimal insulation and without increasing external dimensions. In addition, the Family Hub™ is a perfect enhancement for all kitchen spaces, with its modern and premium built-in look, elegant flat doors, recessed handles, and fingerprint-resistant finish.

Intelligent Meal Planning

Family Hub™ is more streamlined and more personalised than ever, meaning users will spend less time preparing meals and more time enjoying them. It customises the entire food experience — recommending Smart Recipes based on preset dietary preferences, coming up with a weeklong meal plan based on refrigerator inventory, and preparing a Shopping List[2] with all the right ingredients.

The Meal Planner app is now smarter, with the AI-powered Quick Plan offering a week’s worth of recommended recipes with just one click. And with View Inside, users can easily peek into the fridge from the touchscreen display or remotely from their smartphone2 to find out what’s left.

Building Stronger Family Bonds

With Family Board, families can use the intuitive 21.5” touchscreen bulletin board to enhance life’s special moments through sharing photos, posting stickers, drawing pictures, and creating notes, for everyone in the household to interact with. The Family Board will now support video sharing and playback, so families can relive their most precious memories together by sharing content from their smartphones2 to the Family Board. Users can also pin their favourite webpages on the Family Board to share their favourite reads of the day with the rest of the members.

Keep forgetting important dates? The Calendar App allows all members of the family to share their schedules and check on each other’s calendars via the Family Hub™, or directly from the smartphone[2].

With the Morning Brief app, the Family Hub™ also provides daily updates including weather forecasts, schedules and even reminders on food that are expiring[3]. Samsung’s Bixby voice assistant[4] can also read aloud customised information for individual users with the help of its voice recognition function.

Stay at Home Entertainment

The Family Hub™ offers multi-room entertainment which allows users to stream their favourite music, or even catch up on serials from where they left off from the living room. Besides offering a variety of music apps, including Spotify[5] and TuneIn, users can enjoy rich sound with high quality speakers, while continuing to enjoy their favourite music across devices.

The Smart View feature allows users to mirror content from connected Samsung TVs[6] and Samsung mobile devices[7] for a truly seamless entertainment experience. Users can now enjoy hours of entertainment across their kitchen, living room or bedrooms comfortably. With portrait mode, users can also enjoy vertical smartphone videos, as well as their favourite social media content on the full screen of Family Hub™.

Connect and Control Your Smart Home

The Family Hub™ takes a smart home to the next level. It is as easy as ABC to monitor and control any SmartThings-compatible products[8] throughout the entire home, making chores a breeze. Users can simply turn the lights on or off, see who is at the front door, set the temperature for air-conditioning, or even control their QuickDrive™ washing machine and POWERbot™ robot vacuum cleaner– straight from the fridge.

The Family Hub™ can also seamlessly connect to users’ Galaxy smartphone via Bluetooth® connectivity, so they do not miss any important calls and can communicate hands-free with Bixby voice control[9].

Local Pricing and Availability

The new line-up of Family Hub™ Smart Fridge is now available in Singapore on Samsung Online Store and major consumer electronics & IT stores.

From now till 16 September, customers will also receive a free POWERbot-E vacuum cleaner[10] (worth $599), with any purchase from the new Family Hub™ range.
