Samsung to launch new E-commerce enabled Smart Refrigerator in Korea
Samsung has unveiled an addition to its arsenal of hi-tech home appliances, an E-commerce enabled refrigerator (FRS73DRDFW) which lets you order your kitchen supplies directly through the inbuilt LCD display. This one was born out of collaboration between the Korean giant and E-Mart and was earlier witnessed at IFA last year. Users would get to choose from a list of 22,000 items sold by E-mart and also set your preferred delivery date. It will be available for sale in Korea this month but we don’t know how much will it cost. Also, Samsung hasn’t mentioned about its plans of unveiling this one in other countries as yet.
Before this came in, we have had smartphone apps and our computers who let us buy things from the comfort of our home, but Samsung seems to bringing a whole new definition of convenience here. With this, the company also spoke of its new strategy where it would bring things like Smart device, Wi-Fi, Cloud computing for home appliances.
