Samsung is getting into the high-end vacuum game in New Zealand with the release of its Jet range.

The Korean technology company's cordless stick vacuum cleaner has been released to compete with the likes of Dyson, Miele and Tineco.

Customers who really hate the dust and mess that can come from emptying their vacuum will have the option of forking out extra for what Samsung bills an industry-first disposal solution in the Clean Station, which automatically empties the Jet.

Samsung says it "incorporates a highly advanced dust filtration system that directly solves the issue of having dust fly everywhere while disposing collected dust from the vacuum canister".

"Users simply need to place the dustbin on top of the Clean Station to automatically empty out its contents," the company says.

"The Clean Station even features Air Pulse Technology, which pulsates the air in the dustbin to shake off trapped dust. The dust is then collected in a micro bag inside the machine, which can easily be replaced every two to three months."

The new Samsung Jet promises up to 200W of suction power, while the cheaper Jet Light model is said to offer 150W.

The vacuums also boast a HEPA filtration system that Samsung says is verified and certified by the British Allergy Foundation and captures 99.999 percent of dust particles and allergens "that normally would escape back into the air through the vacuum exhaust".

As with other modern stick vacuums, some Samsung Jet models come with a charging station that can be wall-mounted, while others come with a charging station stand.

The Samsung Jet and Clean Station are on sale in Aotearoa now.
