CES doesn’t even start until next week but already the big players have started making announcements. Samsung have started talking about their Evolution Kit and it looks rather interesting.
This is what Samsung said:
The Evolution Kit, which has been introduced for the first time at CES 2012, is an innovative concept that enables Samsung 2012 Smart TV to evolve into Samsung’s new 2013 Smart TVs. By simply attaching the Evolution Kit device into the back of a Samsung Smart TV, consumers can enjoy the latest features that the 2013 Smart TVs have to offer.
With hardware enhancements, such as CPU, memory and GPU up to the level of the latest Smart TV, users can enjoy faster speeds for browsing the Internet and multitask by using apps while watching TV.
In addition, Samsung’s Smart Interaction features such as voice control and motion control will be enhanced. Once the Evolution Kit is attached to the slot, 2012 Smart Hub is transformed to 2013 version. Every year, consumers will now be able to enjoy the latest services with Samsung’s Smart TVs.
The actual figure of Evolution Kit is finally revealed for the first time at CES 2013. Samsung will demonstrate the wonderful change that with its attachment to the TV, the new 2013 Smart Hub shows five different panels where consumers can enjoy a wide range of content including Live TV programs, VODs, apps and Internet.
The Evolution Kit is the optimal solution for users as it allows them to always experience the latest service of Samsung Smart TV with their existing 2012 Smart TVs even though hardware or software specifications continue to improve in the future.
“Evolution Kit has opened a new era of Smart TV and completed a true Smart TV with its innovative concept, which fits in the rapidly changing IT trends”, said Sunny Lee, executive vice president of Visual Display Sales & Marketing Team, Samsung Electronics. “Consumers can enjoy the latest features and services every year without having to purchase a brand new set. Samsung Smart TV users will enjoy Timeless TV that transcends time with Evolution Kit.”
We will be at CES 2013 next week and will bring you more on this, and other stories throughout the week.
