The 32 inch Samsung Smart 7-in-1 TV is available at no cost EMI of Rs 999 while the 40-inch Samsung Smart 7-in-1 TV will go live on Amazon and Samsung Shop in the fourth week of August.
Coming to the features of the TV, The Frame is a QLED TV that transforms the TV into a picture frame that can show 1,000+ artworks from around the world. The Frame also has in-built motion and brightness sensors. When it is not being used as a TV, The Frame switches into Art Mode and displays digital pieces of art to turn an everyday living space into an art gallery. Just like how a framed picture looks different depending on the time of day, The Frame adjusts the screen brightness based on the ambient light. There is also an Art Store to download new artwork for the TV. The Frame is a 4K TV that supports HDR 10+. The Frame also works with Bixby and Google Assistant enabling voice controls. You can use your voice to change channels, adjust the volume, control playback and more. The frame can also be used to control your smart home appliances and it also supports AirPlay 2.
Moving to the Smart 7-in-1 TV, the TV boasts of a bunch of features we recently had a chance to experience. The TV can be used as a personal computer, letting you create documents or work from the cloud. Users can remotely access their laptop or personal computer from any location so long as their computer is connected to the internet, from the comfort of the TV. The Smart 7-in-1 TV is secured by Samsung’s Knox. It also has access to Microsoft Office 365 services over the cloud.
Reminiscent of Winamp, the TV has a theme that turns it into your personal jukebox. There is a library of skins available to choose from. This is handy for those looking to use their TV to play music.
The Samsung Smart 7-in-1 TV transforms into a virtual cloud to automatically store photos and videos from one's smartphone. The pictures and videos of a smartphone are transferred automatically and wirelessly without an internet connection on to the USB drive connected to the TV which is password protected.
Users can also Live Cast directly to their TV. This is similar to performing a Facebook live with the only difference being, you are broadcasting the live feed to your TV. So if you are on vacation and want to show people back home how much fun you are having, this is the way to go. Remember, this is a live video and not a chat, so there is no 2-way communication. Users can also mirror their smartphone display to the TV. The Smart 7-in-1 also supports streaming services like Netflix, Prime Video and Zee5. You can check out the features of the 7-in-1 TV in action in the video below.
