BERLIN: KOREAN ELECTRONICS FIRM Samsung has unveiled a Windows 8 all-in-one (AIO) Series 7 PC today at the IFA electronics trade show in Berlin.

Coming in 23in and 27in sizes, the Series 7 AIO range builds on the Series 9 Notebook to "inherit Samsung's advanced engineering craftsmanship with high finish and stylish design".

The devices are driven by a third generation Intel Core I7 CPU and have 8GB of RAM, dedicated AMD Radeon HD graphics and a full HD WQHD 2560x1440 display supporting 10-finger multi-touch control.

The Series 7's display also supports five-hand gesture recognition features, allowing users to control the device with a flick of the wrist from up to a meter away.

"Swipe right or left to turn the pages of an e-book or cooking recipe, or rotate your palm clockwise or counter-clockwise to change the volume while watching a movie," Samsung said in a statement. "You can simply close your hand to click on an option in a program and stop watching a movie by just waving your hands."

Samsung said its new AIO PCs also have viewing angles of 178 degrees both vertically and horizontally to improve entertainment such as watching movie or video clips. A Blu-ray drive, up to 1TB HDD and 64GB of SSD storage are also thrown in to ensure the devices can store plenty of media.

In terms of aesthetics, Samsung said it is going with the "modern and minimalistic look" for its new Series 7 AIO PCs, featuring a metallic arch stand, an ultra-slim display with a durable metal edge, and an edge-to-edge glossy black screen. Both models will come in only a black colour option.

Samsung hasn't announced a UK release date or prices, but check back soon for a video demo of the Series 7 AIO PC in action. µ
