Samsung’s new 65-inch The Terrace TV will transform your backyard

Samsung today announced new size options for its latest QLED 4K televisions: A newer, bigger version of The Frame and a stunning, 65-inch version of The Terrace Full Sun, which is meant for the sort of backyard most of us only wish we had.

The new unveilings are a part of Samsung’s lineup for this week’s CEDIA Expo 2021 in Indianapolis.

More relatable to most folks will be new sizes in the QLED QN90A line, which now has options for 43, 50, and 98 inches. Those join the existing 55-, 65-, 75- and 85-inch models, which to date retail from $1,549 to $2,999.


Samsung’s work of art known as “The Frame” also gets a new size option — a whopping 85 inches. It’s still part-TV, part picture frame (thus the name) and is very much meant to be mounted as the centerpiece of any entertainment area. And it’ll join the existing sizes of 32, 43, 50, 55, 65 and 75 inches. Samsung isn’t giving pricing information just yet, but the 75-inch Frame starts at $2,699 — before you toss in another $200 for one of the non-black bezel colors.

For those who prefer to show off outdoors, the new 65-inch Terrace Full Sun gives you an option for outdoor entertainment that, as the name implies, is meant to be enjoyed in direct sunlight while maintaining full visibility. It’ll join the existing sizes of 65 and 75 inches. No word on pricing just yet, but it’ll certainly cost you — the 75-incher retails for $10,999. On the other hand, if you’ve got the sort of backyard in which this sort of TV fits in perfectly (as seen above), then dropping more than 10-large on an outdoor TV maybe isn’t the biggest of concerns.

And finally there’s a new version of the monster LED series known simply as “The Wall,” because that’s basically what it is — a giant wall display. It’s not really meant for you to use at home, but it’s the sort of thing you might see a business or sports venue employ. The new offering can be configured at over 1,000 inches (we’ll save you the math; that’s 83 feet, double the existing size), while maintaining 8K resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate.

The Wall is one of those things that if you have to ask the price, you can’t afford it. But it’s also ridiculously cool.

Samsung’s new Frame TV transforms your living room into a 4K art gallery
A Samsung Frame TV hangs on a wall.

Since the first flat panel TVs were introduced, the holy grail of television (at least in the mind of manufacturers) has been a TV that didn’t look like a TV, but instead looked like a piece of framed art on the wall – a window to another world, if you will. It’s a tact that has been tried before, but Samsung’s new Frame TV (yes, that’s its name) perhaps strikes closer to this target than any of its predecessors. And you know what? It’s not even outrageously expensive.
In true art gallery fashion, the Frame TV is sold in two pieces: The display panel itself is available in a 55-inch model at $2,000, and a 65-inch model at $2800. But if you want it to look like art, you’ll need to buy one of the bezels available in white, beige, and walnut – think of it as the frame for your painting – for $200 or $250, respective to size.
Lest we be too quick to dismiss this as another gimmick, we must point out that Samsung has gone to great lengths to make this TV look like art – we’ve seen it in action, and it is convincing. Adding to the suspension of disbelief is Samsung’s Invisible Connection cable, a fishing line-like fiber optic cable that delivers the video signal from common components like a cable box, Blu-ray player, or Roku, also found in the company’s QLED TV line. Samsung also ports over its no-gap custom wall mount system for the Frame TV, so there will be no tell-tale gap between the TV and the wall.
An "Art Store" is also available for the display with a growing collection of works to choose from, numbering around 100 already. Frame TV owners can purchase works from “established and emerging artists, curated by several international organizations, galleries and museums, including Artspace, LUMAS, Magnum Photos, Saatchi Art and Sedition,” according to Samsung. The digital art will run $20 per piece, or an annual subscription is available for $5 per month.
When the TV isn’t being used as a … you know … TV, it goes into “art mode,” and changes its processing so that the still image really does look like art. Motion sensors will detect when nobody is present in the room, and the TV will go into a power saving mode until motion is detected, at which point the TV will reactivate. This is still a TV, though, and you can expect the best of Samsung’s technology here, including 4K Ultra HD resolution, wide color gamut, and HDR10 support.
The Frame TV will be available starting at $2,000 beginning Sunday, June 18.

Sonos’ new search feature needs work

Shortly after Sonos showed off its new wireless speakers -- the Era 100 and Era 300 -- the company quietly released a new version of the search feature that’s built into the Sonos app. Sonos says the new version (which is slowly rolling out) is a better overall search experience. And yet, it's a big departure from its normal search, which is now called "classic search," and I think it’s still very much a work in progress.

Sonos says that for now, the classic search isn't going away. But come April 25, everyone will have access to the new search. Here's what you can expect when you use it.
