CES 2014 is just around the corner, scheduled at the end of the first week of January. It is no wonder, then, that Samsung is dropping hints about its upcoming products in a bid to create some momentum to the unveiling of its new offerings at the CES event.

The company has officially revealed that its 2014 Smart TVs will come not only with improved voice recognition capabilities but also with advanced finger gesture controls. Voice commands will be more natural, allowing the users to perform tasks quickly by uttering even smaller sentences. For instance, users can switch channels simply by saying out the channel number aloud.

The finger gesture controls also sound like a very useful and interesting feature. All the users need to do is perform different gestures with a single finger from the distance and that will accomplish a whole range of tasks on the TV. For instance, by rotating your finger clockwise, you will be able to instantly stop a video or scroll back.

Samsung is also adding support for more natural languages in its Smart TVs. While the 2013 models arrived with support for 11 countries. The 2014 Smart TV line-up, however, will come with support for languages in a total of 23 countries, which means that Samsung will pushing it into newer markets.

To know more about the upcoming Samsung Smart TV line-up, we’ll have to wait and see what the company unveils on January 7 when CES 2014 is scheduled to kick off.
