Samsung Kiosk Machine To Highlight Advanced Security And Hygiene Features

Samsung said the kiosk's touch screen is coated with a special film that boasts antibacterial and sterilization effects

Samsung Electronics on Wednesday said it has launched a kiosk machine in South Korea that highlights advanced security and hygiene features, as the tech giant enters the self-service machine business amid the pandemic-induced contactless trend. A kiosk is an all-in-one self-service machine that allows consumers to select, order, and pay for services and products at restaurants, marts, and pharmacies.

Samsung said its first-ever kiosk machine will be globally available in the first half of the year. The company signed a partnership with Fiserv, leading payments and financial services solutions provider, to sell the kiosk.

The product with a 24-inch touch display comes in three types — wall-mounted, standing, and table. It is powered by an advanced system-on-chip and does not require a separate personal computer to manage content and payment information, reports Yonhap news agency. Samsung said the kiosk’s touch screen is coated with a special film that boasts antibacterial and sterilization effects and was recognized by the US-based safety certification organization Underwriters Laboratories.

Those who have Samsung Kiosk can manage the machine in real-time through its remote management system, the company added. (IANS)
