Design

Has a Built-In Camera

The UE55JU6740 has a built-in camera, which is unusual. Most of the other televisions that have been on the market for a comparable time to this television do not have a built-in camera.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative TVs with a built-in camera currently available including because of its better review score, the Samsung UE78HU8500.

We compared all the other TVs which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the Samsung UE60JU6400 (£1,699) is also worth considering.
