Singapore- People can now prepare themselves to control functions of appliances they use every day for food storing, cleaning, and entertainment through messages.

They will be able to talk with their TV to change voice and picture settings, even in Arabic. In fact, these appliances are ready and close to invade the Arab and global markets, as announced at the Samsung Electronics Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Forum held in Singapore, with the attendance of more than 400 media figures and distributors from the MENA region.

The forum has asserted that smartphones will soon become a primordial device to control home appliances and adjust their functions according to the user’s desire.

During the forum, Choong Ro Lee, the president of the Samsung Electronics Middle East and North Africa office, stated that over the years, Samsung spoke about its vision of the Internet of Things, and it continues to defy the barriers to ensure our evolution in the IoT space by introducing new products with great elegance and distinguished performance.

During the forum, Samsung unveiled several key products, including the new QLED TV display lineup, which allows the user to control it with manual and voice commands.

New air conditions will also be capable of evaluating the entourage’s temperature and regulate their function automatically, which is expected to reduce power costs by 72% and protect the user’s health at the same time.

These new innovations come shortly after a hard phase Samsung faced with the explosion of Galaxy Note 7 batteries and the recall of the device from global market. However, the company said it will always be eager to develop more advanced electronic devices with the newest techniques that serve users.
