1. Appearance

Last year Samsung launched its groundbreaking The Frame wall TV series with an artistic picture-frame design concept, which is a TV set when turned on and a picture frame in a gallery when closed. This very artistic TV has received a lot of popularity. So this year Samsung further launched a new generation of The Frame wall series, Samsung the Frame 2022 adds a matte LCD panel for reducing reflections, making the TV look more similar to a canvas.

The new Matte display provides more effective anti-glare, anti-reflection and anti-fingerprint protection.

Of course the best feature of Samsung The Frame is its artistry. You can find 1600+ digital artworks from the Art Store on the Frame to decorate your home. Besides, you can customize the bezel to make it more artistic.

In addition to its artistry, Samsung the Frame is well equipped. As 4K QLED TVs, the Frame 2022 and the Frame 2021 both support HDR 10+ with a refresh rate of 60Hz, which isn't too good, but refresh rate isn't the only metric for judging picture quality.

3. TV Platform

As always, Samsung the Frame uses the in-house developed Tizen system, but the Samsung The Frame 2022 features the newly designed Tizen 7.0, which has a new screen with a new Game Center and sidebar menu. And The Frame 2021 comes with Tizen 6.0. (WebOS vs. Android TV vs. Tizen OS)

In addition, there is a small difference in that The Frame 2022 supports Bluetooth 5.2, while the Frame 2021 supports Bluetooth 4.2


Samsung The Frame 2022 and 2021 overall configurations are similar, the biggest difference is that the 2022 uses a new Matte LCD panel, which prevents reflection and glare.
