Samsung to unveil Family Hub fridge-freezer at IFA

Samsung will unveil its new two-door fridge-freezer version of the Family Hub refrigerator at IFA 2016 in Berlin.

The Family Hub fridge-freezer features Samsung’s Twin Cooling Plus technology, which, says Samsung, cools the fridge and freezer separately with two different evaporators, keeping the temperature and humidity at optimal levels for food.

It also includes three interior cameras that can take photos of the refrigerator contents each time the doors close, meaning people can see what they have at any time on their smartphone.

Users can also keep track of food expiry dates by entering the number of days it has left when they put it in the fridge. Details can be checked on the 21.5in touch-screen.

The touch-screen can also function as the family’s interactive white board as well as offering options for TV mirroring and music streaming to play through its built-in speakers.

“We designed the Family Hub fridge freezer with the needs of families and contemporary households in the UK and Europe in mind,” said Suh Byung-Sam, head of Samsung’s digital appliances business. “By introducing unbeatable technologies and connected features that truly fit European lifestyles in the refrigerator market here in Europe, we plan to continue our number one position.”

  • Samsung Electronics’ booth at IFA will be on Level 2 of City Cube Berlin from September 2-7.
