Hisense Unveils a Full Lineup of Sub-$1,000 ULED Android TVs
Competitive features of new line of Hisense TVs include DCI-P3 color space, Dolby Vision and HDR10.
Packed with features and selling for less than $1,000, the new line of ULED Android TVs from Hisense offers a lot of bang for the buck. The company’s proprietary ULED technology spans across its full lineup of Android TVs, including the Hisense H8F and H9F.
Powered by the Hisense Hi-View chipset, the newest Hisense TVs automatically know when to make the colors more vivid and how to better balance brightness and contrast.
“We see consumers as TV viewers, not just buyers, so we’ve worked tirelessly to design stunning and sophisticated televisions from the inside out that challenge expectations and deliver best-in-class experiences,” says David Gold, Hisense USA vice president of Consumer of Electronics.
“With thousands of games and 500,000 movies and TV episodes available, Android TV allows us to provide a wide array of entertainment options that are easy to find. No one in your house will be able to say ‘there’s nothing to watch’ anymore.”
Hisense H8F and H9F Support Google Assistant, Alexa
In the H8F, a range of picture-quality algorithms driven by the Hi-View Chip Set enables the TV to display a Wide Color Gamut, reach up to 700 nits peak brightness level and benefit from MEMC and BFI for smoother motion.
The addition of Dolby Vision HDR adds detail to color and contrast making live sports, movies and TV episodes, feel that much more realistic.
According to Hisense, Premium ULED, along with a 120hz native panel and Quantum Dot, drives further enhancements in the Hisense H9F, reaching a new height in peak brightness up to 1,000 nits, and up to 132 local dimming zones to offer greater contrast control.
The company says the inclusion of Quantum Dot helps to achieve pinpoint color accuracy, unlocking a Wide Color Gamut that displays 100% of the DCI-P3 color space. At the heart of the new H9F Premium ULED is the Hisense Hi-View DDS engine, controlling proprietary video processing algorithms for 4K Super Resolution images.
Android TV delivers live and on-demand content from streaming services like YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and Sling. Viewers can also stream content from their phones using Chromecast support with thousands of compatible apps.
The new Android TV lineup allows users to enjoy built-in Google Assistant for voice search, discovery, and commands. Viewers can get answers to questions about programs or films they watch, find weather updates or check calendars for a clear view of the day ahead.
The H8F and H9F’s integrated Google Assistant feature can control everything from compatible lights to audio equipment, thermostats, appliances, and more.
Additionally, viewers can download the Hisense skill for Amazon Echo devices to control other smart home products like light bulbs, door locks and the Hisense HiSmart Portable Air Conditioner that works with Alexa.
Available now, the Hisense H8F 50-inch model retails for $399.99, the 55-inch model for $499.99, and the 65-inch model for $699.99. The Hisense H9F will be available in June with the 55-inch model retailing for $699.99 and the 65-inch model debuting for $999.99.
