Committed to delivering groundbreaking innovations that enhance people’s everyday lives, Samsung Electronics, the Korean electronics giant, experienced a highly successful 2018 year, marked by a host of pioneering product innovations in the categories of Visual Display, Fitness, Sports and Biotech, Wireless Handset Accessories, Smart Home, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Computer Hardware, Components and Peripherals, In-Vehicle Audio/Video and Sustainability and Eco-Design innovations.
As a testimonial to the cutting-edge quality and technology that Samsung promises, 30 of its product innovations were recognized at the CES® 2019 Innovation Awards, including two ‘Best of Innovations’ accolades. These prestigious awards reward devices and services that display outstanding design and engineering in cutting-edge technology. The CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, the owner and organizer of CES. Many of Samsung’s industry-recognized products will be on display at CES 2019, which takes place 8th to 11th January 2019 in the USA.
The categories in which Samsung was awarded at the CES® 2019 Innovation Awards are Visual Display, Fitness, Sports and Biotech, Wireless Handset Accessories, Smart Home, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Computer Hardware, Components and Peripherals, In-Vehicle Audio/Video and Sustainability and Eco-Design innovations. Some of the innovations that were recognized at the Awards are: The Samsung Galaxy Note9, the powerful premium smartphone that delivers all-day performance boasts of an all-day battery, a new S Pen that features Bluetooth Low-Energy connectivity, Samsung’s most intelligent camera yet and up to a terabyte of storage.
Yet another device that was awarded was the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 – A 2-in-1 Android tablet, designed to help people work smarter by keeping you operating at the highest levels. With Samsung DeX, longer-lasting battery, refined S Pen, four speakers tuned by AKG, this new tablet makes for easier productivity and more immersive entertainment anytime, anywhere.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch’s long-lasting battery and LTE connectivity gives consumers a true standalone experience. With Samsung’s signature rotating bezel and a more robust lineup of style options you get a smartwatch that looks like a traditional timepiece and is intuitive to use. With over 39 tracked exercises and activities and new sleep and stress management features, the powerful smartwatch keeps consumers focused on their health and wellness goals.
The Wireless Charger Duo is yet another innovation from Samsung. A combination of the Fast Charge Wireless Charging Stand and the Wireless Charging Pad, the fast-charging two-in-one allows users to quickly charge their phone alongside another Qi-compatible phone or wearable simultaneously.
Further, the Samsung DeX gives users a PC-like experience directly from their flagship Samsung Galaxy mobile device. It can be done by simply connecting a mobile device to an external monitor, or changing a setting on Galaxy Tab S4. DeX enables users to use their phone or tablet as a touch padboard or touch keypad. DeX also offers “dual mode”, so they can continue to use the phone or tablet while working on the external monitor – whether participating in a video chat or drawing and taking notes. Note9 users can also use their S Pen to advance slides while in DeX mode on a larger screen.
Another stunner, the SmartThings Tracker, is a small, lightweight GPS tracking device connected through an LTE-M network that helps people quickly and more accurately keep track of what matters most. Whether it’s a gym bag lost at school or a pet that might have wandered too far from home, items can be easily tracked in real time through Samsung’s Android and iOS compatible SmartThings app. As it is SmartThings-enabled, the SmartThings Tracker can be used as an arrival sensor, triggering automations like a connected porch light turning on when the device is within range.
Other award-winning products of Samsung include HMD Odyssey+, Samsung Galaxy A6, Samsung 256GB 3DS DDR4 RDIMM, Samsung 512GB Universal Flash Storage, Samsung 3.84TB NVMe Z-SSD, Samsung LM302S and Samsung SSM-U Series.
