Samsung Announces The HomeSync Android Media Player

Samsung is quite busy with its announcements; after revealing the Galaxy note 8.0, the South Korean giant announced the HomeSync Media Player, an Android-based media device that connects to your TV via HDMI and can stream media (photos, videos and music) either wirelessly from your Samsung phone/tablet (via Wi-Fi) or directly from the locally-stored content on its 1TB of storage, all at 1080p resolution.

The HomeSync will feature a 1.7Ghz dual-core processor and will support all the standard video and audio codecs. Connections can either be made through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and/or MicroUSB through USB 3.0 along with optical-out audio round out the package.

The device will run on Android Jelly Bean (probable version 4.1.2) and will have direct access to the Google Play Store for media access. It can support eight different accounts for different members in the household, and private accounts can be encrypted so one family member can’t see another’s content.
