Samsung updates its range of customizable, bespoke, smart appliances with a wall oven, washer and dryer. The Bespoke AI Oven features a 7 inch screen and touch controls. Cooking methods include air sous vide, air frying, and steam cooking. Perhaps the most intriguing element, however, is the AI camera inside.
The camera can recognize what you’re cooking and suggest optimal cooking settings when it detects what you’re cooking, Samsung says. In addition, it can send you alerts to prevent your food from burning. You can keep an eye on your food using the screen or the SmartThings app (which allows you to control the oven remotely). There is an option to take photos of your creation or even live stream the video feed, which could help budding Twitch creators find their niche.
Additionally, the oven has Samsung Health integration and can analyze workout stats and nutrition goals based on the ingredients you have on hand. The bespoke AI oven is available now in Europe and will arrive in North America this summer.
As for the company’s fridges, the 4-door Flex now has a larger Family Hub+ touchscreen. It now measures 32 inches, so the screen is almost 50 percent larger than previous models. Samsung says it’s easier to use multiple apps at once and multitask. The display also includes a built-in SmartThings hub. This helps you connect other SmartThings-compatible devices without the need for additional hub hardware.
As with previous models, there’s an AI-controlled camera inside that can analyze food labels and images to make sure you don’t run out of essentials. The latest 4-door Flex will be available in North America and Korea in the first half of the year.
The new bespoke side-by-side fridge has touch sensors on each door so you can open them when your hands are full. Like the 4-door Flex, it has SmartThings integration and the integrated Beverage Center with two options each for filtered water and ice. This model will be available in the US by the end of March.
Finally, Samsung had some updates on the sustainability front. This year the company will launch microfiber emission control cycles and filters for its bespoke washing machines. The aim is to reduce the microplastic pollution in the water.
The company also announces that it has received the industry’s first Energy Star certification for smart home energy management systems for its SmartThings Energy system. Samsung claims AI Energy Mode for that recently started the rollout can reduce the power consumption of its devices by up to 30 percent without significantly affecting performance. For example, it can make your freezer a degree warmer or reduce the maximum water temperature of your dishwasher.
