Samsung's new fridge looks like a giant smartphone

Samsung has gotten an early jump on this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) by releasing photos of one of its strangest new gadgets, which looks like a mixture of a refrigerator and a gigantic smartphone.

The photos, pointed out by The Verge, first appeared on Samsung’s Korean Flickr account, and identified the smart fridge as a stainless steel “family hub” refrigerator. In the photos you can see a huge display on one of the refrigerator doors, with controls on the bottom that resemble what you would find on a smartphone.

Though the screen appears black in the photos, on show floor ads, it seems to have apps like a calendar, weather, and Pandora, according to The Verge.

Samsung will likely reveal more details about the fridge later this week at CES.

Here are all the photos of the fridge:
