Samsung has today announced the launch of three new speakers that will be added to its Wireless Audio range.
Dubbed the R5, R3 and R1, the new speakers are set to be shown off at IFA next month and will come with a new multi-room app and will feature physical buttons on the speakers.
Samsung explains more:
The R5, R3 and R1 models follow the widely praised R7 and R6 speakers in Samsung’s Wireless Audio 360 line-up, and offer the same high-quality, balanced sound, and premium table-top design that enables them to fit seamlessly into any home.
“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.”
The new speakers will also be able to connect with an updated Multiroom application for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, the app will allow users to share music across Wi-Fi connected devices through their home, it also allows users to find and select music as well as create playlists.
The app will also work with the Samsung Gear S and the upcoming smartwatch that Samsung is set to announce.
With the smartwatch you can control music and volume, as well as search through playlists and queues.
Samsung has also partnered with a service called Qobuz to offer high-fidelity music on the speakers.
The new models will be available in the US and in Europe in the last quarter of 2015, they will be priced from $199 to $399.
As of yet Samsung has not revealed many details about the speakers, but as they are set to be demoed at IFA 2015 next month we should have a ton of new details then.
