Samsung is also showing a range of new Radiant360 speakers in a variety of new colors and patterns to complement the décor of any room to more easily integrate into the whole home. The speakers use proprietary Ring Radiator technology so they can be placed anywhere and still fill the room with well-balanced sound.

Samsung is also providing greater control of the speakers using new apps for the Gear S2 and Gear S smartwatches, and an improved Samsung Multiroom App for smartphones and tablets. The Radiant360 Series also offers new smart home functionality, including audible notifications and home cinema settings.
