We've added more pictures to the Home Hub details.

Samsung's CES presence did not end with the launch of the long-awaited Galaxy S21 FE. On Tuesday, the company took to the platform to announce its latest efforts in replacing smart home and SmartThings, Samsung's connected ecosystem. While the company announced many smart home products, such as specialty home appliances, they also unveiled a new Home Hub display for appliance control and monitoring.

Samsung’s Home Hub is an 8.4-inch tablet that can be used on a dock or when you go around the house based on your needs. However, it is the purpose of the smart home control panel that is available for the whole family.

The interface is similar to Samsung's SmartThings app, with tabs for accessing devices, automation, options, and the various SmartThings services. For example, consumers will be able to easily find recipes with SmartThings Cooking, or track energy consumption with SmartThings Energy.

Samsung provided some details about the Home Hub, saying it "integrates with AI-connected devices to simplify home management." The tablet will have two microphones and two speakers so that it can understand commands easily and users can hear answers clearly. It will also be able to hear responses "spoken from the spacious room" when paused, thanks to the high-performance microphones.

Samsung seems to be keeping its focus on smart home control, leaving out useless entertainment features that you will find on some of the best smart displays such as the Amazon Echo Show 15.

The Home Hub will only be available in Korea in March, with a wider release planned after that, though Samsung has not stopped announcing a global launch date.

However, Samsung is also making moves to expand their SmartThings Hub technology by integrating it into its devices. That allows Samsung TVs, displays, and even coolers to become SmartThings hubs to connect and control other devices inside your home. These capabilities to select Samsung products will come through this year.

In addition, Samsung has announced that it is a founding member of the Home Connectivity Alliance (HCA), which aims to make smart home appliances work together seamlessly, no matter who made them. That's very similar to the Matter campaign, of which Samsung is also a part, so this move seems a bit useless. For now, we'll have to wait and see how this initiative joins Matter when the standard launches later this year.
