Industry Specialty Awards include Two "Best of Innovations" and Four Eco-Design Products Reflect Samsung's commitment to advancing technology and promoting sustainability

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J., November 12, 2012 – Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a market leader and award-winning innovator in consumer electronics, semiconductors and telecommunications, today announced that it won 27 prestigious International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013 Innovations Awards. CES, the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow held by the Consumer Electronics Association® (CEA) every year, has honored Samsung with 117 awards in the past four years.

Among the 27 CES awards for 2013, Samsung was recognized with two Best of Innovations awards and four Eco-Design honors. Products entered in the CES Innovations program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers, and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting-edge consumer electronics products across 29 categories.

"Samsung continues to create superior industry-leading products, content and services," said Y.K. Kim, president and CEO, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. "We are honored that CEA and the industry have recognized this commitment, and we look forward to demonstrating our latest product innovations at the 2013 International CES."

Samsung Electronics' award-winners include products in the TV, home theater system, mobile phone, tablet, home appliance, server, software, and computer component categories. All of Samsung's award-winning products will be on display during the 2013 International CES, which runs January 8-11, 2013, in Samsung booth #12004 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Honorees will also be displayed at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the International CES from 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, January 6 in the South Seas Ballroom C at Mandalay Bay.

Many of the winning products will be first unveiled at Samsung's CES press conference, scheduled for 2 p.m. on Monday January 7, 2013. The following are additional details for some of the award recipients:

The memory card can record up to 96 hours of HD video, store up to 60,000 photos in a single session and provide up to 50,000 hours of music. Samsung's 64GB microSD card generates the highest random speeds in the industry (1,800 random read inputs/outputs per second and 500 random write IOPS).

The Samsung Exynos 5 Dual is the world's first ARM Cortex A-15 Dual Core application processor. Using 32nm HKMG (High-K Metal Gate) process technology, the 1.7 GHz dual core Exynos 5 Dual brings unmatched performance to leading mobile devices while maintaining low power consumption.

As part of Samsung's PlanetFirst™ initiative, a commitment to become one of the world's most environmentally friendly companies by 2013, Samsung has a dedicated goal to develop environmentally friendly products and building green manufacturing sites. In its latest effort to support that commitment Samsung received four Eco-Design awards which include:

The Samsung Green DDR3 64GB LRDIMM - a highly advanced memory module designed for server systems used to support the infrastructure of a wide variety of server applications. It delivers the highest memory performance available today for servers (1333 Mbps) and at its highest density enables extremely high capacity (3TB) memory configurations for four-way server systems. Operating with a voltage of 1.35V, according to Samsung tests it provides an average 70% power savings (per unit density) over a 50nm class equivalent, 1.5V DDR3-based RDIMM.

Re: Samsung bringing 85-inch ultra high definition TV to CES

You know this makes it very hard to avoid "upgrade-itis" when they just keep up their game with bigger and higher def tv's. Must resist, must resist......resistance is futile, you will be assimilated.

I am happy to hear we have another player in the 85 inch UHD LED TV arena. Along with LG and Sony, Samsung should help keep the prices down. The more players the better it is for the end consumer!

Yeah. They'll still be prohibitively expensive for awhile though I can't wait until they are in the $2000 range

Lol. That may take a while. I will grab one as soon as it reaches the $5000-$8000 range!

I can wait, my current tv is over 12+ years old and still kicking. I would love to upgrade and am always looking but can wait for the right unit at the right price! ..
