Washington: We are just days away to enter the New Year, South Korean technological giant Samsung already planning to go big in 2014.
Samsung has announced that it will be improving its smart TV which controls with “finger gesture” features. It will let you change the channel, browse content and adjust the volume all with the power of your pointers.
Samsung says you’ll be able to go back to a previous screen by moving your finger in a counterclockwise motion.
Samsung adds that the voice search feature is “also more convenient to use”, letting you change channel in one simple step. You’ll now just have to say the channel number without preceding it with “Channel change”.
As for when you’re using voice commands to search for content or information, the results will now show up on the bottom of the screen in a pop-up window.
It should all be welcome news for those frustrated with the state of current gesture and voice controls on Samsung TVs, so let’s just hope this pointing stuff doesn’t turn out to be an unused gimmick.
That’s not all we’re expecting to see from Samsung’s TV efforts at CES – it also just announced a 105-inch curved Ultra HD television, which we’ll be getting our hands on at the first opportunity.
