The company will demo three new speakers at IFA 2015.
Samsung has revealed the latest additions to its home audio lineup. The R5, R3 and R1 are all part of the manufacturer's Wireless Audio 360 Speaker collection.
"With these additional models we are bringing a new kind of high quality sound to the market, with design that is simple, yet premium, and offers a more intuitive user interface," said Jurack Chae, Senior Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. "The R5, R3 and R1 will help cement Samsung’s position as a world leader in home audio."
All three models are omni-directional speakers with ring-radiator technology. In addition, the speakers include a new tap-and-swipe user interface that allows customers to adjust volume, playback, and music sources with a simple touch, tap or swipe on top of the device. Likewise, support for Samsung's updated Multiroom App for Android and iOS mobile products is integrated as well, letting users share music across Wi-Fi connected devices throughout the home. Finally, high-res music streaming through the Qobuz online music platform is available too.
The Samsung R5, R3 and R1 will be available in the last quarter of 2015 with prices ranging from $199 to $399.
