The South Korean electronics behemoth believes that Echo will lend POWERbot VR7000 an edge over its peers, helping it counter competition.

The Consumers Electronics Show 2017 has actually become a hub for all the electric companies to showcase their genius ideas and to come forward with innovative technology too. There's also some new software features that allows the Powerbot VR7000 to more intelligently map out rooms and optimize its cleaning depending on floor type.

The 20 watt robot vacuum cleaner is smaller than previous models. Perhaps the vacuum's neatest feature, is that it is compatible with Amazon Echo, allowing users to control their POWERbot VR7000 with voice commands.

While Neato Robotic's Botvac launch stole most of the thunder from POWERbot VR7000, Samsung has iRobot Corporation (IRBT - Free Report) to fret about as its Roomba range of robotic cleaners is by far the most popular.

The robotic vacuum cleaner requires less maintenance because it comes with a self-cleaning brush system that can reduce significantly the amount of hair and dust that gets trapped in the bristles, according to Samsung.

As per Tech Crunch, the said robot vacuum will be in line with the Neato vacuum functionality that was released in the last month which is speculated to work with commands like "Alexa, ask Neato to start cleaning" and "Alexa, ask Neato to pause cleaning".

Users can control and view numerous devices' actions, such as starting and stopping, scheduling and checking cleaning history, through an app, as well as the Amazon Echo.

We're yet to receive any information on pricing and availability of the robot vacuum cleaner. Moreover, the users can control the Powerbot VR7000 using a smartphone app which makes it flexible. It's safe to assume that Samsung will show off the POWERbot VR7000 at CES 2017, which begin on Tuesday, Jan 3, 2017.
