Samsung will unveil all the new 2013 products at CES 2013 in Las Vegas this January. Samsung’s new 7 and 8 LED series have already been awarded the "Design & Engineering Award", and the award list also mentions Samsung's "2013 OLED TV” - but the products remain secret.

To the right and left in the pictures above we are also left with hints to other new features such as the social media integration (in the right side) and a movie catalogue (in the left side). Samsung will still offer access to a range of TV apps.

Samsung’s new Smart TV scan be controlled with hand gestures


In the picture above, Samsung reveals that gesture controls are still a central element to its Smart TV plans. With hand gestures you can navigate the menus. Notice that the TV in the last picture reveals a TV design without a camera on top. In the first two pictures you see Samsung’s 2012 Smart TV with a visible camera. This could be a sign of what to come.

We have previously heard that Samsung plans introduce a new Smart TV platform based on the Bada operating system that Samsung originally developed for smartphones. This could also have something to do with Samsung's so-called Evolution Kit; a small module that can upgrade Samsung Smart TVs with new features each year. Possibly a Bada-based Smart TV platform.
