RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a leader in home appliance innovations, today announced the availability of its new robot vacuum, the POWERbot Turbo, which takes extreme cleaning to new levels with the world’s most powerful suction among robot vacuums*. The holiday entertaining season will be less of an undertaking with the intuitive power of a robot cleaning helper at your command. With a multitude of smart and intuitive features packed into a sleek, floor hugging machine, Samsung’s POWERbot Turbo offers an impressive mix of technological sophistication and stylish design.
“Homeowners have told us again and again that one of their biggest challenges is keeping their homes clean and getting rid of the floor dirt and dust which never seems to go away,” said John Herrington, Senior Vice President, General Manager of Home Appliances at Samsung. “With holiday guests about to visit, you’ll need all the help you can get and the solution is pretty simple and practical: use as much strong and targeted vacuum suction power as possible. The POWERbot Turbo provides levels of performance that no other robot vacuum can match. And it joins a line of other POWERbot products that are your essential and powerful partners for a dirt- and dust-free home.”
Setting a Smart New Bar in Cleaning Power and Precision
In 2014, Samsung first introduced the POWERbot robot vacuum line, which offered unprecedented cleaning power and precision. It was an immediate hit that transformed the floor cleaning experience and set a new bar for convenience and performance. The new POWERbot Turbo amps up the level of suction, Wi-Fi control and convenience, banishing hard-to-vacuum dirt and other objects that have always been frustrating to pick up.
With 70 times more powerful suction than the leading robot vacuum brand1, the Samsung POWERbot Turbo is the world’s most powerful model among robot vacuums– and one of the smartest. Its Smart Control Wi-Fi connectivity allows you to remotely guide the movement of your vacuum using your smartphone. The “Select & Go™” feature creates a virtual map of your home on your smartphone app, letting you select specific areas or rooms that may need cleaning. There is even an extra convenience of voice-controlled vacuuming on demand through Amazon Alexa.
With an enhanced visual mapping system that can literally “see” its way around your home, the POWERbot Turbo robot vacuum delivers the ultimate clean, all without lifting a finger. The Visionary Mapping™ Plus System literally creates a map of your home that includes hard-to-reach corners with the use of high performance computer chips, more than 10 sensors and a digital camera. As it cleans, the vacuum stores this map as a Digital Floorplan® that is accessed by the Select & Go™ feature. Be it dust, debris or dirt, nothing is safe from the POWERbot Turbo’s clutches as it glides along the floor. An upgraded, high-performance FullView Sensor™ acts as the robot’s eyes, detecting every narrow and small obstacle and avoiding obstacles like furniture, walls and stairways.
The extreme suction power is coupled with CycloneForce™, an efficient dust separation system that uses strong centrifugal forces to provide more consistent power with less clogging2. For even more cleaning convenience, Point Cleaning™ uses a remote control to allow you to shine a light beam to a desired location on the floor, which the vacuum follows cleaning as it moves.
Superior cleaning with POWERbot Turbo is also assured with a high quality enlarged drum brush which cleans a much wider area with no need for side brushes.
Sophisticated Design and Innovation in a Compact Machine
Measuring just 14.8 inches in width, 14.3 inches in depth and 5.3 inches in height, the POWERbot Turbo packs a lot of innovation into its cleverly designed robust frame and sophisticated LED interface. An attractive and functional front conceals an enlarged Combo Brush, whose combination of soft and hard bristles along with a rubber blade pick up even the finest pet hair with fewer tangles, while also sweeping up larger crumbs and debris.
The top of the vacuum features a transparent CycloneForce compartment with a clear window to see the amount of dirt collected, which can easily detach to empty the dirt into the trash can. Large Easy Pass™ wheels on the wings of the vacuum allow it to move freely and efficiently around the floor, from room to room, easily navigating different floor surfaces and bypassing wires and door frames.
The POWERbot Turbo (model: VR9350) is available now at major retailers nationwide and online at Samsung.com for suggested retail price of $1,199.
