The Samsung Family Hub is the ultimate culmination of the figurative and literal definition of cool, as it relates to fridges that is as it not only keeps your groceries on ice but also has a huge and touchscreen on one panel with a host of intelligent features.
We’ve glimpsed it at the Samsung Sea Forum in various incarnations but it has yet to arrive in Malaysia. Until now that is as Samsung Malaysia is now finally issuing one of their most tech-laden fridges ever for aspiring homeowners.
In terms of design, the Samsung Family Hub is a side-by-side fridge with a generous 628l net total storage capacity with about 260l allocated for the freezer section which is plenty.
It also has a digital inverter compressor that adjusts internal cooling performance to ensure optimum chilling of all internal compartments. On paper, this is able to reduce noise, use up 50% less power than a non-digital inverter enabled fridge and is rated to work for over 21 years which is quite a substantial duration indeed.
Where it trumps the competition is that it crams in a huge 21.5-inch touchscreen on the right panel that acts as a Smart Hub of sorts for everyone staying at home. It can act as a digital notice board to post digital Post-its, has WiFi and – especially for grocery shoppers – an internal camera.
This nifty feature lets you see what’s in the fridge on your smartphone so you really know if you need to get milk when you’re out at the store. This is on top of its more salient benefits like acting as a means to watch TV, check up recipes and the like.
