Like most of the other TVs of a comparable type and age to the UE55H6240, the UE55H6240 does not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in other TVs which also have a built-in camera including the UN55ES8000[pl_403312_price], or the UE55F8000[pl_1274638_price] both from Samsung.
