About the Samsung QN32LS03B "The Frame"
Beautiful, accessible art
Beautiful, accessible art
Samsung's "The Frame" has been the coolest way to hide your TV in plain sight since the first version was released five years ago. When you're not binge-watching your favorite shows, it can display a selection of masterworks from museums around the world alongside photos from your last vacation.
Art Mode transforms The Frame into a beautiful work of art when you're not watching TV.
Grow your digital gallery
The included Samsung Collection starts you off with a selection of 100 pieces of professionally curated art from ten different galleries. If you crave more options, you can purchase individual pieces from the Art Store or pay a monthly membership fee for unlimited access to the whole catalog.
It's also easy to upload and display your own photographs or digital versions of other kinds of art, too. Load them up on a USB flash drive, or simply use the Samsung SmartThings app on your phone. You can use the app's filters to edit and improve your uploaded images. Further customize the artwork display by choosing from different matte color and layout options.
Enjoy the art of film
The Frame can make movie nights a work of art, too. Thanks to Quantum Dot Technology, these QLED TVs display vivid, accurate colors at any brightness level, and HDR content looks stunning.
Keeps a low profile
The Frame looks super-streamlined when hung with Samsung's included Slim Fit Wall Mount. It allows the Frame TV to rest nearly flush against the wall, just like a real picture frame. And you don't have to clutter up the view with a bunch of wires thanks to the included One Connect Box Mini. You hook up all your gear — cable box, game console, etc. — to the hub, then run a single slim cable up to the TV to supply it with signals and power.

QLED Technology: Samsung's Frame TV utilizes Quantum Dots to produce an immersive viewing experience with a wide range of color, exceptional contrast, and accurate detail. Quantum Dots are nano-sized, cadmium-free, finely tuned particles that turn light into the brilliant billion plus colors you experience on Frame TVs. Quantum dots are inorganic particles that resist wear out, so you can enjoy superb picture quality for years. As some TVs age, you may see that colors are less vibrant. Frame TVs are built to last and provide a vibrant picture even after long periods of time. Samsung's metal alloy quantum dot pixels feature inorganic materials that are engineered for durability and resistance to fading.
- 1080p Resolution: The Samsung Frame TV is outfitted with two HDMI 2.0 inputs (located on the One Connect Mini Box Mini). The TV's HDMI inputs will support 1080p (24/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video signals. All video signal are upscaled and displayed at 1080p.

QLED TVs with 100% Color Volume deliver a brilliant visual experience by providing a rejuvenating effect for colors that may appear dull or faded in challenging content. QLED televisions can produce 100% color volume in the DCI-P3 color space, the format for most cinema screen and HDR movies for television. By definition, Color Volume is an index of how well colors are reproduced in richness and accuracy at different brightness. With higher color volume, you get a wider, more diverse range of color that feels rejuvenated at higher brightness levels.
- HDR (High Dynamic Range): The Samsung Frame TV features the ability to provide a premium High Dynamic Range (HDR) experience, with a higher level of contrast between light and dark images. HDR delivers a much higher level of contrast between light and dark to produce an image that is more realistic and closer to what the content creator imagined.

Not compatible with Dolby Vision, HLG, or HDR10+.
