MWC 2013: Android-based TV-connected device


In addition to the Galaxy Note 8.0 and press invites for the Samsung Unpacked event set for March 14, Samsung also unveiled a TV-connected device based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Samsung HomeSync.

The heart of the HomeSync is a 1.7GHz dual-core CPU paired up with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of flash and 1TB of HDD storage. As noted, the Homesync runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS and will also feature Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11bgn dual-band WiFi, optical audio and HDMI 1.4 outputs.

There are not too many details regarding the device, but Samsung's press release does state that it will support 1080p resolution, some sort of streaming from other Galaxy devices, access to Google Play Store, remote control from smartphone as well as support for eight different password protected user accounts.

Unfortunately, Samsung did not shed any details regarding the price but it is scheduled to appear in "selected countries" in April.
