Is 2019 over already? Samsung Electronics’ 50th anniversary year passed like a whirlwind, with announcement after announcement revealing innovations designed to take our experiences with technologies like AI, 5G and mobile devices to the next level.
Samsung Replacing Plastic Packaging with Sustainable Materials
Samsung Electronics is taking steps to replace plastic packaging materials with paper and other environmentally sustainable elements.
From the first half of 2019, the packaging used currently for Samsung’s products and accessories – ranging from mobile phones and tablets to home appliances – is substituted with environmentally sustainable materials like recycled/bio-based plastics and paper.
To revamp product packaging, Samsung Electronics has formed a task force involving design and development, purchasing, marketing and quality control for innovative packaging ideas.
For mobile phone, tablet and wearable products, Samsung will replace the plastic used for holder trays with pulp molds, and bags wrapping accessories with eco-friendly materials. Samsung will also alter the phone charger design, swapping the glossy exterior with a matte finish and eliminating plastic protection films, reducing the use of plastics.
The plastic bags used to protect the surface of home appliances such as TVs, refrigerators, air conditioners and washing machines as well as other kitchen appliances will also be replaced with bags containing recycled materials and bioplastics, which are respectively made from plastic wastes and non-fossil fuel materials like starch or sugar cane.
Samsung Launches Project PRISM With Customizable BESPOKE
Samsung Electronics’ Project PRISM, recently launched in Korea, features home appliances that can fit into any lifestyle by allowing customers the ability to personalize the materials, colors, shapes and designs of the products.
Samsung’s First Customizable Refrigerator: BESPOKE
In order to bring about this new era of customized home appliances, Samsung has introduced BESPOKE, its latest refrigerator first showcased at the Samsung Digital Plaza event. The name itself has a clever double meaning, playing on the word for ‘custom-made’ and a combination of ‘be’ and ‘spoke’, highlighting the role the voice of the user has in its creation.
With the BESPOKE refrigerator, customers can customize their own configurations of material, color, sizing and other feature choices. Able to fit naturally into whatever home space the customer has available, the BESPOKE refrigerator comes in 8 sizes; 4-door freestanding, 4-door “kitchen fit”, 2-door BMF (upper refrigerator and lower freezer), 1-door refrigerator (24 inches), 1-door freezer (24 inches), 1-door kimchi refrigerator (24 inches), 1-door (alternating temperature, 18 inches) and kimchi plus.
With a BESPOKE refrigerator, customers can choose their preferred color from a 9-strong color range that includes navy blue, mint, pink and coral. Able to fit in seamlessly with any home interior styling, BESPOKE also features three different refrigerator door texture options.
The Smartest Meeting Ever, Introducing the 2019 ‘Samsung Flip’
As needs for a smart meeting environment are increasing, there is growing interest in the 2019 Samsung Flip. The audience at the recent InfoComm 2019 had a chance to try the product, and when they experienced it, they were amazed at the speed of the pen and texture of the brush as well as how real it felt to use this digital white board. Samsung Newsroom summarizes the 2019 Samsung Flip with various functions for a digital meeting environment in three keywords: pen, convenience and design.
Pen: The Connection Between a Display and its User
The 2019 Samsung Flip’s extraordinary writing recognition technology is one of the key elements of improvement. The product provides a passive pen without electronic components inside, rather than an active pen with electric circuits. Users can decide to write on the display with the pen provided with the Samsung Flip but this can be replaced with other objects such as a pen, pencil or even small sticks instead. The 2019 Samsung Flip has an enhanced ability to recognize the thickness of writing objects and reflect the thickness on the display.
The 2019 Samsung Flip is exceptional in its writing recognition speed and it has no delay whatsoever. With improved recognition speed compared to the previous Samsung Flip, the new product is the fastest in the industry. It also delivers the feel of analogue in a digital environment via the flip pen. For example, the wooden material flip pen provides the feel of using a pencil. With this feature, users are able to write or draw on the screen using the slim profile of a realistic pencil tool.
