Samsung has brought its Frame TV to Kenya.
The TV is one of the fewest TVs around that have been lauded for their overall attractiveness, and can act as its name suggest – a frame on your wall.
Samsung Kenya says the television will be availed across its retail stores in the country. However, it should be noted that this is not a cheap TV, and the price should tell you it is targeting customers who love high-end electronics.
Enterprise customers can also buy it for business or outdoor use cases.
As always, the TV’s display technology us QLED. It is also equipped with a feature named Art Mode that turns it, as said, into a picture frame with more than 1200 art from around the world.
It is also a thin device at about 25 mm thick, meaning it can be framed on you wall and stay there as if it was built on it.
It has a ton of other features, most of which are based on Samsung’s TV platform Tizen, such as Samsung Art Store, which gives you access to thousands of gallery-quality images of artwork, both famous works and new material from upcoming artists.
The 65” model costs KES 240,000 with two years of warranty.
At Samsung we have realized that the modern Kenyan places what their consumer electronics look like at the same level as the performance. Kenyans are looking for TV’s that look good and have exceptional features. We take customer requests very seriously and that is why we have decided to bring in the Frame TV for the design conscious user, someone who cares about the look and feel of their environment and how the TV blends-in.
The Samsung Frame TV comes with a separate connect box that allows for all the wiring required to run the TV at optimum level. The screen is connected to the power through a one wire connection. The TV is mounted with a special “no- gap” wall mounting that allows the TV to sit flat on the wall like a piece of art.
