Back at the Mobile World Congress 2013, which took place in February, Samsung announced the HomeSync. Its a set-top box powered by Android Jelly Bean OS. Basically, HomeSync is a home media server with a 1TB hard drive. It has complete access to Google Play Store when connected to the internet either over Wi-Fi or through Ethernet. Samsung didn’t announce pricing and availability details back then. In May, it released a walkthrough video for HomeSync, but again didn’t say anything about the release. The set-top box has now appeared on Samsung’s website and a PDF of its user manual has appeared on the company’s website as well.
Unfortunately, Samsung still hasn’t disclosed how much the HomeSync costs and when we’ll be able to pick one up. Powering the HomeSync is a 1.7Ghz dualcore processor aided by 1GB of RAM, 8GB of flash memory and support for every standard audio and video codec. USB 3.0, optical-out audio and 1080p HDMI with HDCP support is also built in. Samsung released the walkthrough video for the HomeSync set-top box a couple of months ago, the video does a god job of educating prospective customers about this device. Here’s to hoping that they now reveal pricing and availability information soon.RELATED
