The TV has a customizable bezel design with a slim 24.9mm profile. The new model will come with a Matte Display which further eliminates glare.

Users can also choose to mount the TV on its Simple Stand or Studio Stand to complement spaces at home.

The Frame will feature an updated Art Store with a simpler and easier-to-navigate interface, plus a greater selection of artworks around the globe.

For those who want to display pictures with loved ones or relive personal memories, The Frame also has a My Photo feature for that, using smartphones or USB flash drives.
