Conventional residential designs embed a terrace or patio area as a place to gather with family.

Samsung the Terrace goes beyond the living room experience, a testament to Samsung’s leadership in television technology, bringing all the advantages of indoor QLED TV technology to the outdoors. Not only the common features expected from a TV such as Smart TV features and wireless connection, aesthetic design, and picture quality, The Terrace also has excellent durability and brightness to provide a quality outdoor experience.
