Quick Answer

  • Samsung 7, 8, and 9 F Series Smart TVs have a built-in camera on top of the bezel.

Samsung F Series Smart TVs offer a built-in camera. In the Samsung Smart TV F series lineup, you have six models (4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 series). Only the 7, 8, and 9 series of TVs have a built-in camera. For other models, you need to buy an external camera.

Using the built-in camera, you can enable or disable motion and face recognition features. You can make video calls directly from the TV and so on. If you don’t want the camera, you can retract it manually.

In this guide, you will learn where to find the built-in camera on your Samsung TV and how to use it.

The camera on the Samsung Smart TV is in the top center of the TV’s bezel. If you use this camera, it will be easier to make video calls to your families and attend business meetings. Along with the camera, you can find two microphones. One microphone is located at the bottom of the TV screen, and the other one is on the Samsung TV remote.

Built-In Camera

A built-in pop-up camera is available in the Samsung TVs 7, 8, and 9 F Series. There is an option to extend and retract the built-in camera on Samsung Smart TV.

Press the camera

Just press the camera on the edge (without touching the lens) to activate the camera. The camera will extend in a curve-shaped path. To retract the camera, push the camera in the same curve-shaped path. You will hear a clicking sound indicating that the camera is retracted. If it is not retracting, restart your Samsung TV to fix the issue.

External Camera

In the older Samsung Smart TV, you have to buy external cameras to have video calls. We suggest you buy only the Samsung recommended camera, the Samsung VG-STC4000 Skype TV Camera with FULL HD. You can also use the camera from other brands, but you won’t get the same performance. You can use a USB cable to connect the external web camera to your TV.
