Samsung debuts The Terrace for your outdoor viewing pleasure

Mike Wheatley

Samsung is bringing television to the great outdoors with the launch of its new “The Terrace” range of lifestyle TVs.


The Terrace TV sports a QLED display, comes in a choice of 55-, 65- and 75-inches and is designed for outdoor living spaces with a build quality that’s able to withstand some of the worst mother nature can throw at it. It’s rated as iP55, which means it’s not quite fully sealed but still able to withstand dust and water. As such, a slight downpour is unlikely to do any damage, and the remote control also happens to be fully waterproof as part of the packaged.

Moreover, the Terrace is resistant to sunshine too, with a whopping 2,000 nits of peak brightness. Throw in some anti-glare technology, and whatever is displayed on screen should be watchable even on the most blazing hot summer day.

And if you feel like upgrading the built-in 20 watt speakers, Samsung is also offering a weather-resistant Terrace soundbar to go with it.

The Terrace is built for every occasion too. Fancy watching some live footy? Well, the TV happens to offer 240Hz motion processing, making it more than capable of handing the fast-paced action.

Of course it has all the other features we come to expect of Samsung TVs, with Tizen OS, Bixby voice assistant, HDR10+ support and a built-in HDBaseT receiver. That makes it possible to run video, audio and power through a single, long-length cable, making it a cinch to set up anywhere in the garden.

Samsung said The Terrace will launch in the U.S. and Canada first, followed by Australia and Europe later this year. Prices range from $3,499 (£2,800) for the 55-inch version, to $8,999 (£7,300) for the 75-inch model.
