SAMSUNG has unveiled a water-resistant "outdoor" TV designed to live in your garden.
The 4K telly has boosted brightness – and even comes with a rugged rain-proof soundbar.
It's called the Samsung Terrace, and features a whopping 65-inch QLED display.
Samsung promises more than 2,000 nits of brightness – an iPhone 11 reaches around 625 nits, by comparison.
That's so you can view the telly outside on a bright sunny day without having the screen completely washed out by light.
And the TV is IP55-certified, which means it's capable of withstanding water and dust.
Interestingly, Samsung may not be entirely confident in the water-resistance.
IP55 isn't the highest level of waterproofing, and all of Samsung's promotional materials show the TV with some kind of roof overhead.
Still, with an overhang above, an IP55 TV should easily survive some wind-swept drizzle.
The TV requires a single power lead, so you may need to hook it up to an extension cable.
You'll also need to mount the TV as it's designed to work without a base.
It's got loads of premium features, including a wide viewing angle, a 4K Ultra HD resolution display, and 3 HDMI ports on the back.

It's also got "ambient mode", which lets you use the TV as a virtual wallpaper to match its surroundings – or as a showcase for some digital art.
