TV manufacturer Hisense has unveiled its latest product lineup for Mzansi. In addition to its various new Quantum Series TVs introduced over the past year, the company has is now ready to go live with new ULED TVs ranging from 55” to 85”. The company is offering everything from budget wares that target cord-cutters and other consumers all the way to high-end models that come with substantial price tags.
The models include the Premium ULED (55”, 65” and 85”) Elite ULED (55”, 65” and 75”) and Classic ULED (55” and 65”). The sets feature ULED tech alongside Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision, local dimming zones, microphones in the bezel, far-field voice control with Google Assistant built-in, plus Android TV for directly downloading and streaming content.
The new range has Dolby Vision HDR picture and Dolby Atmos sound, which are cinema technology for your home.
In 2020, Hisense blew us away with its H9G, a 4K TV with truly impressive 1,000-nit peak brightness. For 2021, that bright torch gets handed to the U8G, which Hisense claims can muster even more brightness.
That kind of achingly bright performance sets up the U8G to be an ideal choice for rooms with big windows and lots of natural light. When you combine the U8G’s brightness and its anti-glare, anti-reflection screen, it should look stellar no matter how much ambient light it has to contend with.
Hisense is positioning the new U7G Series (formerly the H8 Series) as its leading choice for gamers. In truth, the other models mentioned here will also be excellent for gaming, but the U7G is Hisense’s most affordable way to access the most gamer-friendly features.
The key to the U7G’s gaming chops is its support for HDMI 2.1. This brings variable refresh rate (VRR), auto low-latency mode (ALLM), and 4K at 120Hz for super-smooth visuals. Hisense also bundles in FreeSync Premium VRR, which makes the U7G a great companion for PC and console games that use this feature.
Hisense’s ULED technology, which combines hardware and software to produce a high level of overall performance, is now available at a more affordable price with the U6G Series.
Prices range from R11 999 (U6G|55U6G), R13,999 (Elite 55U7G) R14 999 (Premium 65U6G), to R44 999, (Premium 85U8G.
