The fridge comes with a 21.5-inch Full HD LCD display (that’s a small TV!) on the upper right exterior door. It serves as the refrigerator’s digital family command center. “The screen allows you to post, share and update calendars, pin photos, share treasured kids’ works of art, and leave notes – all with the ease and convenience of your smartphone,” said Samsung.

Samsung has equipped the fridge with three high quality cameras to capture an image every time the door closes. “You can then access those images anytime using your smartphone and take a peek inside your fridge. Even if you’re at the store and forget to check on what you need for dinner that night, you can easily pull up the Samsung Smart Home app and have a look right into your Family Hub fridge.”

You can even use the refrigerator to do online grocery shopping with the aid of a major credit card partner, as well as manage recipes and compile and share shopping lists.

It also offers options for music streaming to play through its built-in speaker or connect to Bluetooth wireless speakers. The 21.5-inch screen can be used to watch TV by mirroring with a Samsung Smart TV.
