Samsung get creative with new smart Air Purifier range

No one needs to spell out why the market for air purifiers is growing in 2020. With more countries increasingly concerned about personal air quality in the home, its certainly a good time to start thinking about modern, advanced ways of maintaining healthy homes with these smart devices.

It’s then the perfect time for Samsung Electronics Australia to release its new range of feature-rich Air Purifier models, which arrived in stores earlier this month with the aim of creating “meaningful solutions for real problems Australians face at home”.

More people are becoming aware that indoor quality quality can be two to five times worse than outside air due to common airborne particles such as gases, dust, chemicals, bacteria and various odours that come with everyday lifestyles. The new models have been designed with that line of thinking, especially as Australia moves from winter onto hay fever season.

The range includes five new air purifiers, including the curious Samsung Cube (AX9500 – pictured) which sits at the top with a price tag of A$1,299, and sports a distinctive modular design so units can be stacked on top of each other if need be. The beautifully designed device features 60,000 micro-holes for quiet air disbursement, with 3 different air filters for precision.

The slim AX7500 takes a step down to a more manageable A$999 price tag, designed for large rooms with 3-way air flow and a dual power fan. Along with the slightly wider A$799 AX5500, the purifier’s front air inflow draws in air from the front, which ensures that efficiency even when positioned against a wall. Air then goes through three distinct filters (washable pre-filter; Activated Carbon Deodorisation Filter; and True Hepa Filter) to offer a multi layered purification system designed to capture airborne particles, harmful gases and inhibit the spread of captured bacteria

Smart features in the new range include a comprehensive detection system with advanced sensors and a display that can provide users with precise information about current indoor air quality conditions, using a four-colour indicator for easy visual readings.

Select models are Wi-Fi enabled, allowing users to monitor and control indoor air quality remotely via Samsung’s SmartThings app. Bixby can also be used to remotely turn the unit on or off, and check air quality and functions.

The new Air Purifier range is available in Australia now from select retailers nationally and online at
