Samsung is introducing a slew of new products today at the SEA Forum 2017 happening at the Marina Bay Sand in Singapore. Among which that captured the attention of the attendees is the POWERbot VR7000, Samsung’s hero product for its growing line of robot vacuum cleaners.

Measuring 97mm in terms of height, the VR7000 is 28% slimmer than Samsung’s previous generation POWERbot models, giving the new product the capability to clean in tight, hard-to-reach spots such as the areas beneath the bed or other furniture. The VR7000 boasts 20W of suction power.

With the Edge Clean Master feature, users will no longer miss cleaning tricky corners of the house. The VR7000 is equipped with a 288mm brush on the front that allows for easy gathering of dust and hair when it reaches the wall at a distance of 15 millimeters. Accumulated dust and hair are automatically disentangled inside the VR7000 with its Self-Cleaning Brush System, which are collected in the middle of the vacuum cleaner for easy disposal.

In addition, Samsung has also equipped the VR7000 with some intelligent features. Combining Visionary Mapping Plus and FullView Sensor 2.0, the VR7000 can map and remember the contours of the room as well as detect and avoid obstacles that are as small as 10mm in size.

Samsung’s VR7000 also features Intelligent Power Control which enables the machine to adjust and optimize the level of its suction power depending on the surface. For example, when transferring from a concrete or wooden floor to a carpeted area, the VR7000 automatically increases its suction power to ensure that it picks up the dirt hidden beneath the carpet fiber.

IoT-enabled, the VR7000 can be remotely controlled with the help of the Samsung Smart Home app installed on a smartphone or any other compatible device. Users can start or stop the machine, schedule cleaning times, and track cleaning history by using the mobile app.

Like the Samsung CH711 curved monitor, the VR7000 was also initially seen at CES last month. You may see it in action on this video. For the full video of the Samsung SEA Forum 2017, visit this link.
