The more modern screen technology should offer improved color and contrast.

I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

The Frame 2019 moves from LED to the better QLED panel technology.


Samsung's artsy lifestyle TVs , The Frame and Serif, sure are pretty, but they've not been as impressive when it comes to picture quality as the company's "real" TVs, especially given their high prices. 

In 2019, you'll be able to get a lot more for your money. Samsung's updating The Frame and Serif with its QLED technology, which delivers better color and contrast over plain old LED. They'll make their debut at CES 2019.

Earlier this year, the TVs got support for voice control via Samsung's Bixby assistant.
