Samsung The Frame has been a standout success for the world’s biggest TV seller. As a TV screen that prioritizes effortless design over perfect image recreation, it will appeal mostly to occasional TV watchers, those who want their big black slab of a screen to fade into the background for most of the day.

The Frame’s central conceit is that it can be disguised as a picture frame, with magnetic bezel accessories and a low-energy standby mode that displays artworks, photographs, or screensavers – much like the best digital photo frames, but one that also works as a television. Intrigued yet?
