Samsung has added an interesting new TV to its Lifestyle Home Entertainment portfolio called the The Terrace. It is an outdoor focused 4K QLED TV, with many features like water resistance, high brightness, anti-reflection coating, etc. and is also accompanied by a soundbar.
Since it is designed to be used outdoors, Samsung has certified The Terrace with IP55 water and dust resistance. It has a peak brightness of 2000 nits that make it ideal to view content in broad daylight and is claimed to be excellent to view high motion rate content like sports. Other features include anti-reflection and adaptive picture technology.
Samsung will also bundle a sound bar to accompany the 4K TV for a complete experience. It can deliver high quality sound and deep bass with its in-built subwoofers. It also features distortion canceling technology to improve sound clarity and has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
The Terrace comes in 3 sizes – 55, 66 and 75-inch models, priced at $3,455 (Rs. 2,62,102 approx.), $4,999 (Rs. 3,79,230 approx.) and $6,499 (Rs. 4,93,020 approx.) respectively, and will be available for purchase in U.S. and Canada today. Samsung will later roll out The Terrace to Germany, Australia, New Zealand and other regions.
Commenting on the launch, Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics said:
Today, new lifestyle habits and trends are evolving faster than ever before. Consumers are using screens to work from home, exercise using online platform, stay in touch with loved ones, and engage with many other activities. Screen should also be evolving in line with these lifestyle changes. With the introduction of The Terrace, we are thrilled to transcend the connected living room experience to the outdoors by delivering on engineering feats and content experiences that only Samsung can achieve.
