Samsung 2022 lifestyle TVs on trend with matte upgrade, brand debuts QD-OLED and 8k high-end displays

The Samsung Frame TV hung on a wall

Samsung is updating its range of lifestyle 4k televisions, The Frame, The Sero and Serif,  with an all-new matte screen finish for 2022.

The matte display reduces glare and reflections, and diffuses light in various angles and directions by introducing an embossed surface which combats daylight or ambient light reflections.

It also allows The Frame to present digital art that looks more ‘painterly.’

No coincidence then that The Frame also offers an updated Art Store that makes content easier to browse, allowing subscribers access to more than 1,600 pieces of art from renowned institutions. For the 2022 Frame, consumers can now enjoy a 2-month free trial, extended from the previous 1-month trial.

The Samsung Serif lifestyle TV, notable for its slim top which is ideal for knick knacks and a favourite with interior designers, comes with a matte finish body to blend seamlessly with the matte display, again giving a more premium look and feel.

Finally the Sero, which can be viewed in both landscape and vertical orientations, is also going matte, and has new smart features optimised for its vertical screen experience.

The 2022 Frame will be available in 32-, 43-, 50-, 55-, 65-, 75- and 85-inches, The Serif in 43-, 50-, 55- and 65-inch screen sizes, and The Sero in 43-inches.

The matte finish makes screens like The Frame present images that look more ‘painterly’…
