Spinto da un processore dual-core da 1.7 GHz, l’HomeSync è dotato di sistema operativo Android con supporto a 8 account separati per tutta la famiglia, con funzioni di criptazione dati per ognuno di essi, se necessario.

Potrà essere collegato alla propria TV tramite porta HDMI, e se usato da una smart TV Samsung, si avrà a disposizione il supporto a formati multipli di video per lo streaming sul proprio dispositivo Galaxy (o altri) in Full HD.
