What does the side view look like with a Deco TV Frame and why are Samsung Frame TV's so unique that we decided to devote an entire product category to them?
Starting in March 2021, Samsung will begin introducing the 2021 models of the TV (model numbers contain an "LS03A"). A key feature of this new TV model is 44% thinner than the prior model years. As a result, the optional Side Extensions listed below will NO LONGER be something to consider as they are simply not needed because the frames will cover the sides of the TV fully now.
As you can see here, there is not enough space for side extensions to fit behind the 2021 Deco Frames. Be careful to select the correct model year when ordering your Deco frame.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All of the images BELOW in this article are based on the 2020 and prior year Samsung Frame TVs. The 2021 models will have virtually no gap between the back of the frame and the wall. This article will be updated when images become available.
Why is a Samsung Frame TV So Thin?
One of the best aspects of Samsung The Frame televisions is how through the use of their innovative One Connect Box, Samsung is changing the way we think about wiring to a television. By using a single clear wire to connect the TV to the One Connect Box with all the HDMI and other component connections. By housing these parts in a separate location, the TV is able to be incredibly thin to the wall when combined with their No-Gap Wall Mount.
Do Deco Frames Reach All the Way to the Wall?
Our TV Frames for Samsung The Frame will wrap partially around the TV to cast a gentle shadow on the wall the last portion of the way so you can't see behind the TV unless you are really getting up close and trying to see what's behind the frame.
Are Deeper Sides Available?
While the Deco frames do extend quite close to the wall, there is still approximately 1" of space between the back of the frame and the wall depending on which of the frame styles you choose. We have had a small number of requests for deeper sides and can make these upon request, however, they are only available via special order. The optional side depth upgrade is $100 additional and takes approximately 1 week. There is no additional shipping cost if ordered at the same time as the frame. Below are some example photos of the Ornate Gold frame style with optional side depth upgrade.

What is the Samsung No Gap Wall Mount?
Samsung Frame TV's come with a unique wall mount that's designed to bring the TV extremely close to the wall unlike any surface mounted TV we've ever seen in our 14 year history of framing over 10,000 TV's. Watch this Video and you'll see why the No Gap Wall Mount is so unique. Through its combination with the back of the TV, the No Gap Mount literally embeds itself into the back of the TV so you TV fits as tight to the wall as it possibly can.
Compared to Other TVs
For typical comparison to other TV's this image shows how on a left a typical thin wall mount on a regular Sony TV would stick quite a few inches off the wall as compared to one of our Deco TV Frames on the right with a Samsung The Frame TV. Samsung truly has changed the game when it comes to making a TV look like art on a wall.
