Its been some time since Samsung started trying to outshine Apple. They almost achieved this with all their android powered high-end handsets like Galaxy s2, s3 and now the soon to be launched Galaxy s4 etc. Now this time Samsung is competing directly with Apple TV with the all new HomeSync – an Android powered media streamer box with 1 TB storage.
The recently announced HomeSync hub has bluetooth and WiFi connectivity and an HDMI connection. Samsung also promises that the users will be able to connect their phones to this system and use the Hub to display the movies/photos/etc onto big screen. The Hub will be able to stream Android movies, TV shows, and games.
The HomeSync will also feature the Jelly Bean Media Player and access to Google Play Store. Samsung has made another awesome feature available on the device which will be awesome useful for the family members. The device will be able to house 8 different accounts with each account having an own account space in its 1TB hard drive. You can even encrypt your personal files and lock them.
An 1.7GHz dual core processor powers the android TV hub. USB 3.0 and an optical audio out are some features that worth mentioning. There is no information about the pricing of this android TV hub which goes for a head to head competition with Apple TV. We will keep you updated.
