Hisense has just announced a couple of 4K ULED Android TVs that look well-equipped for battle in the smart TV market. Say hello the Hisense H9F and H8F.
Not only are these two new TVs powered by Android on the software side, they are also filled with a great deal of high-end TV hardware, to boot.
The innovations that were first introduced by Hisense in its H8 series of TVs have been carried over to these two new models, with some interesting new improvements on the side. According to the company, these products can “push the boundaries” of what a TV can and should be. They’re also running on the Android TV smart TV platform.
“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” explained David Gold, Hisense USA’s VP of Consumer Electronics.
H8 series features
In a nutshell, what the new Hisense H8 and H9 TVs promise are much richer visuals, a wider color gamut, greater color, and more realistic audio compared to other available options on the market. The H9F, in particular, relies on a premium ULED panel, a 120hz refresh rate, and Quantum Dot tech to offer the best experience possible.
Speaking of which, the 55- and 65-inch H9F comes equipped with Dolby Vision, HDR10, built-in Google Assistant and Google Home, support for Amazon Alexa, and a wide-color gamut at 100 percent DCI-P3.
Meanwhile, the 50- and 55-inch H8F offers much of the same with some slight changes. It offers wide-color gamut at 90 percent DCI-P3, dbx-tv audio tech, and motion rate 240 smooth image processing. In other words, there’s some serious tech running inside them.
Release date and price
As of this writing, the Hisense H9F is scheduled for a release in June through Best Buy and BestBuy.com. Its 55-inch model costs $699 while the 65-incher costs $999. Meanwhile, the smaller 50- and 55-inch H8F TVs are already available and they retail for $399 and $699, respectively.
