Samsung made backyard barbecues a bit more fun when it unveiled the Terrace outdoor TV line in 2020 — now, it’s going bigger and brighter. Today, the company announced an 85-inch Terrace Full Sun set which will retail for an eye-watering $20,000. For the money, you’ll get a Neo QLED screen which should remain bright in direct sunlight, as well as “Direct-Sun Protection” to keep the TV safe. Samsung claims it’s protected “up to six hours in sunlight at 700 watts and 104 degrees Fahrenheit,” but it may decrease brightness to deal with higher temperatures and sun conditions.
That heat threshold might seem high, but given that more than a dozen Southern US cities broke their high temperature records this year, it may not be enough to protect your $20,000 TV. The 85-inch Terrace also features an improved IP56 rating to deal with water and dust. (Maybe just think twice about having a movie night during a heat wave or summer storm.)
If you don’t need such an enormous screen outside, you’ve also got some other options from Samsung. The 65-inch Full Sun Terrace is now on sale for $6,500, while the 75-inch goes for $9,000. You can also save a bit more with Partial Sun Terrace sets, which are meant for shaded areas and start at $3,000 for the 55-inch model.
