(Pocket-lint) – Samsung’s popular premium TV, The Frame, blends into living rooms looking like a picture frame, and now it’s about to get an injection of iconic images.
In collaboration with Life magazine, Samsung is bringing 20 selected photographs from the Life Picture Collection to its Frame Series TVs.
The collection is a visual archive of the 20th century, with over 10 million photographs of historically significant moments and people.
The Samsung Art Store has selected 20 photos from the collection and will make them available to The Frame owners from July 28.
The selection includes images from a wide range of subjects, from surfers on the West Coast of California to Pablo Picasso.
“The Frame’s artwork catalog has grown tremendously since its launch in 2017, and it has also diversified significantly since then,” said Simon Sung, Executive Vice President of Business at visual display at Samsung Electronics.
“History is recorded in these photographs, and now consumers can exhibit them with the click of a button, without ever setting foot in a gallery or museum.”
Frame TVs adopted a matte display finish in 2022, further enhancing the effect by reducing light reflections.
If you like the idea of displaying a bit of history in your living room, a 2-month subscription to the Samsung Art Store comes free with the 2022 The Frame models.
