IT Home, Jan 3 - Following the launch of a solar-powered eco-friendly Remote control for its 2021 TV, Samsung has unveiled a new version of its Remote control called Eco Remote that uses a very special technology.



Like previous eco-friendly remote controls, the new remote can be charged with solar energy, though Samsung has also added RF harvesting to the remote to allow it to be charged by "collecting radio waves from the router and converting them into energy."Many appliances do not use this technology, mainly because it is only useful for low-power devices, such as remote controls.

In addition to its new RF acquisition feature, the Eco Remote can be charged by outdoor and indoor lighting or via USB-C. Samsung is also introducing white versions, which The company says are meant to better match its "lifestyle" TVS like The Frame, Serif and Sero.

IT Home has learned that, like Samsung's original remote, the new eco-friendly remote is designed to do away with AAA batteries.Samsung has previously estimated that switching to solar remote controls could save 99 million discarded batteries over seven years. Samsung has also explored other ways to charge the battery itself, such as "using the kinetic energy generated when shaking the remote" and "using the vibrational energy generated when the microphone receives sound".
