Bangkok: Samsung Electronics Sunday launched smart television for the Indian market that would allow users to control TV through voice or motion commands.
Users can turn the TV on or off, activate select applications or search for select content in the web browser – without touching the remote.
The smart interaction is available on the company’s 2012 flagship smart TVs, including the LED ES8000 series, LED ES7500 series and the plasma E8000 series.
The price of these smart TVs would range from Rs.45,000 to Rs.2.65 lakh.
“South West Asian consumers have been quick to adopt mobile technologies, like smartphones and tablets that allow them to make their content accessible wherever they go,” said B.D. Park, president and CEO, South West Asia and managing director Samsung India Electronics at Samsung’s South West Asia Regional Forum 2012.
“They expect not only greater accessibility but greater, more compelling content – all of which are needs met through Samsung’s vision for the future of smart TV,” he added.
The products are built on three parameters – smart interaction, smart content and smart evolution.
The firm also unveiled Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 310, expanding its Galaxy range. Available in 3G and WiFi versions, the product would be available in South West Asia from April.
Equipped with Android 4.0, the tablet features WiFi Direct and built-in social networking features such as ChatON, Samsung’s cross-platform communication service.
Currently the company has over 40 percent market share of tablets in India.
Samsung India reported a sale of Rs.20,000 crore in 2011.
