Samsung HomeSync, the new Android mediahub

Samsung HomeSync

Samsung is not only selling a lot of Smart TV’s and smartphones, as of now, you can also get a media hub from the Korean consumer electronics giant. With this box, it’s completing their hardware ecosystem by creating an Apple TV competitor.

The HomeSync is an Android powered device that can stream films, series and games and it allows owners of a Samsung smartphone to beam content on their phones onto the television. Indeed, just like Apple TV does with AirPlay. But there are also many other ways to connect to the HomeSync. It comes with a USB 3.0, Micro USB and optical audio connection and it supports WiFi 802.11n and bluetooth 4.0

To operate the Samsung HomeSync, there is a Jelly Bean Media player and since it is an Android device, Google Play store can be accessed for extra apps.

Users (up to eight separate accounts can be set-up) will have the ability to store content encrypted.

Under the hood is a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 8GB flash and a 1TB hard drive.
