Samsung has unveiled its new range of eco-friendly washing machines in India. These ‘Ecobubble’ fully-automatic top-loading washing machines are designed to make washing clothes more efficient. Samsung claims these machines can provide up to 20 per cent better fabric care and save up to 73 per cent energy and up to 19 per cent water.
These washing machines are loaded with a range of technologies to increase efficiency. ‘Ecobubble’ blends two of Samsung’s technologies – ‘BubbleStorm’, which mixes detergent with air and water for 2.5x faster detergent penetration, and ‘DualStorm’, which creates strong water flow inside the drum for effective cleaning. The machines also feature Digital Inverter Technology, which saves up to 40% energy, reduces noise significantly during washing cycles, and offers long-lasting durability.
The new range also comes with an in-built heater. This feature, dubbed ‘Hygiene Steam’, washes clothes at 60°C to eliminate up to 99.9% bacteria from fabric. It also removes stubborn and oily stains from clothes without pre-treatment. The washing machines also feature ‘SuperSpeed’ technology, which washes each load in just about 29 minutes, cutting laundry time by 40 per cent, according to figures provided by Samsung.
The new EcoBubble washing machines can also be monitored and controlled via Wi-Fi through Samsung’s SmartThings application. The line-up is offered in 9kg and 10kg capacities. It will be available from September 8 across Samsung’s official online store Samsung Shop, Samsung retail stores, leading consumer electronics stores and e-commerce platforms such as Amazon and Flipkart. Prices start at Rs 19,000 and go up to Rs 35,000.
