Black Friday Deals are going live at retailers, and Amazon is already getting in on the action with a massive $500 discount on Samsung’s innovative The Frame TV.
At this moment, the The 55-inch Samsung Frame QLED smart TV is on sale for $997 on Amazon (opens in a new tab). That’s $500 off its regular retail price of $1,499. Even better, this early Black Friday discount brings the Samsung Frame TV down to a new lowest price ever.
The Samsung Frame TV is one of the best QLED TVs you can buy, but more importantly, it doesn’t just work as a TV. This new concept takes a traditional TV and makes it look like a picture frame instead. When you’re not using the Samsung Frame to watch TV shows and movies, it can be set to display family photos or famous artwork.
The 2022 model of Samsung Frame has brought several much-needed improvements. For starters, the new anti-glare matte screen is a very useful addition. In fact, it helps make The Frame almost unrecognizable as a TV when set to art mode. Although, as we note in our Samsung The Frame QLED 4K Smart TV reviewthe combination of a TV and a digital photo frame won’t suit everyone, and it does have some drawbacks.
As a real TV, The Frame performs admirably. It can’t quite compare to the best samsung tvsas the QN90A Neo QLED, but it still delivers crisp image quality, with vibrant colors and deep blacks. Its audio is nothing to sniff at either, and the 120Hz refresh rate is also commendable. If you just want a pure TV, you can get better specs for the price, but don’t overlook the fact that The Frame is also designed to double as a display piece.
The model on sale in Amazon’s Black Friday deals features a 55-inch 4K display, QLED panel with Ultra HD and HDR resolution. You also get voice assistant compatibility, with Amazon Alexa already built in, as well as Google Assistant compatibility. This means you can navigate your TV with just the sound of your voice.
There are a few negatives here, such as somewhat narrow viewing angles and a Smart TV interface that could be faster and more intuitive. But overall it’s a lot.
