New Samsung robot vacuum cleans up with power and precision, driven by Wi-Fi technology

Samsung Electronics America announced Wednesday availability of its new robot vacuum, the POWERbot Turbo, which takes cleaning to new levels with a ‘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 command.

With a multitude of smart features packed into a sleek, floor hugging machine, Samsung’s POWERbot Turbo offers a mix of technological sophistication and stylish design.

With 70 times more powerful suction than others, the Samsung POWERbot Turbo uses smart control Wi-Fi connectivity that allows remote guidance of the movement of the vacuum using a smartphone. The “Select & Go” feature creates a virtual map of the home on the smartphone app, letting select specific areas or rooms that may need cleaning. It also comes with the added convenience of voice-controlled vacuuming on demand through Amazon Alexa.

“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,” said John Herrington, senior vice president, General Manager of Home Appliances at Samsung. “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.”

With an enhanced visual mapping system that can literally “see” its way around the home, the POWERbot Turbo robot vacuum delivers cleaning, without lifting a finger.

The Visionary Mapping Plus System creates a map of the 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 clogging. For more cleaning convenience, Point Cleaning uses a remote control to allow users 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.

Measuring 14.8 inches in width, 14.3 inches in depth and 5.3 inches in height, the POWERbot Turbo packs a lot of power into its 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 around the floor, from room to room, easily navigating different floor surfaces and bypassing wires and door frames.

The POWERbot Turbo is currently available at major retailers nationwide and online at for suggested retail price of US$1,199.
