RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Electronics America, Inc., the leader in home entertainment,
today announced The Frame has been chosen by Oprah Winfrey and the
editors of O, The Oprah Magazine as one of Oprah’s Favorite
Things for the 2017 holiday season. Newly available this week in a 43”
model, The Frame is an elegant 4K UHD Smart TV designed in collaboration
with renowned designer Yves Béhar that transforms into a gallery-like
art display, delivering a premium entertainment experience combined with
innovative and aesthetically-pleasing design.

“The Frame is an innovative combination of technology and design that
changes the way you think about and experience TV,” said Dave Das,
Senior Vice President, Consumer Electronics Marketing for Samsung
Electronics America. “By combining art and entertainment in an entirely
new way, The Frame is a truly elegant TV hidden in plain sight –
transforming any living space by delivering beautiful design and content

The Frame for this year’s holiday gift guide for its unique solution for
the void in the living room that forms when a traditional television is
turned off. With The Frame, consumers can enjoy 4K UHD picture quality

elegantly exhibit artwork and photographs via ‘Art Mode.’

black screen,” says Oprah in the December issue of O, The Oprah

select the frame, the layout, and the painting or photograph, either
from a large gallery of choices or your own album. Program it and
prepare to be amazed.”
