The Samsung HomeSync was first announced to the free world earlier this year at Mobile World Congress that happened in Barcelona, Spain, and it certainly did turn heads, although the rather boxy design certainly did not make it rush right to the top of the pile when it comes to industrial looks among game consoles, or at least, that is what the Samsung HomeSync could very well end up as. Sure, this is no PS3 or Xbox 360, but it could provide some decent challenge to the crowd-funded OUYA.
In a nutshell, the Samsung HomeSync was specially developed to store and stream multimedia content from as well as to Galaxy devices, or it could also double up as a standalone device. This media streamer at heart also has the possibility of being an Android-based gaming console, especially after one takes into account its hardware underneath the hood, where it runs on a dual-core 1.7GHz Exynos processor, powered by the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system as well as boasts of support for Samsung Apps. Since it also has Bluetooth connectivity, the HomeSync should also play nice with Bluetooth-enabled controllers.
