For the past few years, Samsung has released what they call a Lifestyle TV with their Frame and Serif TVs. For 2020, they are going beyond the living room with their new Terrace TV.
While most people have their TVs in their living/family room, the Terrace TV is made for the outdoors, especially those with patios or decks. The TV is IP55 rated and can withstand all types of weather conditions.
The Terrace TV has 4K resolution using Samsung’s QLED technology to provide great picture quality and 2000 nits of brightness.
Powering the Terrace is Samsung’s Quantum Processor 4K which has features like Quantum HDR 32X, Adaptive Picture and more. There’s also AI upscaling, a wide viewing angle and Direct Full Array 16 plus 100% Colour Volume with Quantum Dot.
Just like Samsung’s other QLED TVs, the Terrace is powered by Tizen which gives you access to lots of streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, Prime Video, Apple TV+, Crave, YouTube and more.
The Terrace also has support for Ambient Mode that turns your TV into a piece of art, TV Plus gives you access to live TV content for free.
You can use your Amazon Echo or Google Home to control the Terrace TV with your voice in addition to the voice remote with Bixby. The remote for the Terrace is IP56 rated.
There’s also Dolby Digital Plus, Bluetooth Audio, Adaptive Sound and 20W 2.0 channel speakers.
For ports, the Terrace has 3 HDMI ports, 1 USB port along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and an HD Base-T Reciever is included.
If you prefer not to use the built-in speakers, Samsung is also launching a Terrace Soundbar which helps provide deep and clear bass and a wide-range tweeter.
The Terrace Soundbar uses a Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connection to the Terrace TV.
The Terrace TV comes in three screen sizes, 75″, 65″ and 55″.
