Earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016, Samsung unveiled a new refrigerator called Family Hub. It's unlike any other refrigerator because it has a massive 21.5-inch touchscreen display. Family Hub was released four months ago in the United States with a hefty price tag starting at $5,600. At IFA 2016, Samsung has confirmed that it's now going to release the Family Hub refrigerator in Europe.
The 21.5-inch Full HD touchscreen of the Family Hub provides more functionality than you can ever hope to get from a refrigerator. It doubles as an interactive whiteboard where the family can share notes, calendars, photos and doodles. Content can be uploaded to the touchscreen directly or remotely via smartphone or tablet. The online shopping app can also be used to order groceries for delivery. Samsung is going to partner with online grocery shopping portals in Europe including premium Italian food provider Eataly, Supermercato24 and coop@home. With the Club des Chefs App customers in Europe will have a chance to cook with the masters. The app will provide cooking tips through text and videos on the touchscreen from some of the best culinary experts in the world.
Samsung has not yet confirmed how much it's going to charge for the Family Hub refrigerator in Europe but you can be sure that it's not going to be cheap.
