A couple of years ago, Samsung surprised us all with a curious proposal for the Smart TV market. The Frame combined art and technology, with a framed television that could be "turned" into a painting. It seems that the public response was good, because we have had a renewal both in 2018 and this year. In fact, the manufacturer has announced that Samsung The Frame 2019 televisions are now available in Spain. This year's The Frame range uses QLED technology to improve image quality. They also have the latest version of Samsung's Smart TV system, which includes the Bixby assistant and compatibility with the Google Assistant and Amazon's Alexa. All this in a flat design, compatible with the No Gap wall anchoring system and with a single cable for its connection. Samsung The Frame 2019 is available in four diagonals, so we can place it in almost any space. Today we are going to go through the features of the 43-inch model (QE43LS03R) in depth .

A frame? Yes
The Samsung The Frame 2019 is not a normal TV. First for its design, since the panel is surrounded by a frame that simulates that we are facing a painting . This frame has a magnetic mount, which allows us to change it quickly. We have four different frames available: black, white, brown and beige.
On the other hand, if we want it to look like a painting we will have to place it on the wall. So The Frame TV includes Samsung's No Gap support . This allows you to install the TV on the wall without holes, being completely glued to it. In addition, it allows you to tilt the TV sideways, backwards or forwards.
In addition, to get that feeling of being in front of a painting, the Samsung The Frame 2019 TVs have the unique Samsung cable . Only a cable designed to be virtually invisible comes out of the TV. This connects the external One Connect box, where we will have all the electronics and the TV connectors.
The only thing we need to make the TV look like a real painting is the works of art. When buying a Samsung The Frame 2019 TV we will have access to three months of free subscription to the Samsung Art Store . In it we can find collections of art and photography, with both classic and more contemporary works.
This year 11 new works of art from the Prado Museum are included . Among them we have works such as Granada or The “Riva degli Schiavoni” in Venice by Martín Rico and Ortega, among others. The application also allows us to configure the reproduction of the works as we like best. We can leave a fixed one, or create a carousel of images that go through in the order we prefer.
In addition, so that the works always look correctly, the new Samsung The Frame 2019 have a brightness and presence sensor . The brightness sensor detects ambient light and automatically balances screen brightness and color tone for natural lighting. And the presence sensor turns off the screen when no one is in the room to save energy.
And also a TV
Although the works of art are the reason for being of this model, the truth is that its buyers surely want to enjoy a good image quality when they use it as a television. The Samsung The Frame 2019 uses QLED technology to reproduce 100% of the color volume. It has HDR technology, being compatible with HDR10 + and HLG .
In addition, it is equipped with Samsung's Smart TV system. It has the best applications on the market, including the Apple TV application. But also with the assistants Bixby, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant . On the other hand, they incorporate AirPlay 2 , with which we can transmit or share content from Apple devices to the TV.

In short, the new TV in Samsung's The Frame range offers a different concept that combines technology and design.
The 43-inch Samsung The Frame 2019 is already on sale in Spain with an official price of 1,200 euros .
