Samsung’s launching a pair of new products in its Lifestyle with a focus on outdoor entertainment. The company says its new Terrace TV and Terrace Soundbar are both “designed with the weather in mind.”
In fact, the TV and speaker each carry an IP55 rating, meaning they offer protection against both dust and water, which would come in handy if you’re setting these up in a backyard patio, for example. The company is certainly leveraging the current focus on outdoor entertainment and the stay-at-home lifestyle in its product announcement.
“In recent months, as we’ve spent more time at home, we’ve seen how the TV has played an even more essential role in our everyday lives. It’s a center for entertainment, a source for news, a hub for exercise,and it helps us stay connected at work,” James Fishler, senior vice president of Samsung Electronics America’s home entertainment division, said in a press release. “As the weather improves, consumers are looking to enjoy those experiences outdoors. The Terrace takes all the Samsung Smart TV experiences that consumers have come to expect, and optimizes them for the backyard.”
The TV is available in 55-, 65-, and 75-inch versions, each sporting Samsung’s QLED 4K tech and brightness levels of up to 2,000 nits. They’re also support high frame rates via MR240, and high-dynamic range options including HDR10, HDR10+ and HLG.
As for the speaker, the Terrace soundbar offers WiFi and Bluetooth connections, 210 Watts of total power, and Alexa support. It also features a built-in woofer and what the company is calling Distortion Cancelling for clearer bass and more dynamic overall sound.
Amazon’s pricing is currently hovering around reported list prices of $3,455 for the 55-inch model, $4,999 for the 65-incher, and $6,499 for 75 inches. Meanwhile, the Terrace soundbar comes in at $1,199. Ship dates are listed as May 31st.
