At CES today, Samsung unveiled its new line of flagship LED televisions, the F8000 series. The new range of televisions will range between 46 and 75 inches, and they feature a quad-core processor, allowing users to interact with their televisions with a range of gesture and voice controls. The processor in the F8000 series is said to be three times faster than the processor found in Samsung's 2012 models.
A brief demo video of the televisions in action showed users using natural language and full sentences to browse and select content. The televisions also feature a reworked Smart Hub interface with a five-panel layout, letting users switch between apps, live television, images, and other content. The televisions also allow users to zoom in and interact with content using a range of hand gestures.
In addition to the interaction features, Samsung showed off an Evolution Kit, a "cost efficient way of having the latest Smart TV features without having to buy a new television set." The Evolution Kit plugs into the back of a Samsung television. Samsung did not provide any details on how backward compatible the Evolution Kit will be.
