Samsung Smart Tango Corner Clean at CES

Samsung Navibot Corner Clean

As I have reported earlier, Samsung was preparing a new robotic vacuum cleaner, the Samsung Smart Tango Corner Clean (or Samsung Navibot Corner Clean as they might call it outside of South Korea) for CES 2012. Unfortunately Samsung decided not to release any official information about it beyond those few product images.

I tried to collect information about the new robot in Las Vegas, but it was one of the hardest quest in recent history. The staff was unprepared and unhelpful at the robot display so I came away with a few lousy pictures and some basic information.

Of course the main invention of the new model is the pop out brush that reaches into the corners more then ever before. This is Samsung's answer to LG's Square that intends to achieve the same goal with the new shape and was announced a few months ago at IFA in Berlin.

The new side brushes worked considerably well in the presentation, collecting all the colorful beans but I don't consider these kinds of challenges representative enough.

The other improvement is related to the camera that is 25% better than before. It isn't going to be easy to check the validity of that claim, but I could immediately spot two invalid statements while I was talking to the rep. The robot was said to be slimmer than previous models, what isn't true because the robot introduced last year was also 8 cm in height. The same applies to the 20.4 cm long bristle brush that is not a bit longer than that of the last iteration of the Navibot line.

Not surprisingly Samsung's rep was unable to state a release date or an expected retail price of the new robot, but a South Korean website lists the Corner Clean to be available for 840,000 won what converts to nearly $800.
