Ever since we first caught a glimpse of Hisense’s new ULED models at this year’s CES conference in Las Vegas, we have been extremely excited to see them on store shelves.
ULED utilizes 20 different patents that Hisense has surrounding color gamut, local dimming, resolution, and motion smoothing, enhancing traditional LED TV for better overall appearance.
On Thursday, May 9, Hisense has announced pricing and availability for all of its 2019 ULED TV models, and those prices might shock you.
The lower-tier H8F model, which Hisense claims is the top-rated TV in its class, is available now starting at $400 for a 50-inch model, with the 55-inch and 65-inch versions of the H8F costing $500 and $700, respectively. That is a small amount of money for a TV that features built-in Android TV functionality (and thus access to more than 5,000 TV-based apps), and offers the same great viewing experience on a budget that we’ve loved from Hisense for years.
The H8F features what the company calls its Hi-View chipset, which automatically adjusts colors to be more vivid when its called for and is designed to balance brightness and contrast to ensure the optimal picture quality when watching a variety of films, TV shows, and sporting events.
The higher-end H9F model will hit stores in June, and will feature all of the same great tech inside the H8F, but with the addition of a quantum dot panel for a peak brightness of 1,000 nits. A higher-end Hi-View DDS engine — a step up from the H8F model — works with the quantum dot panel to provide extreme color accuracy, ensuring that you will always be able to see whatever you’re watching with the same fidelity that its creators’ intended. Both new Hisense TVs will feature support for high-dynamic range content, so colors should be vivid.
The H9F models will start at $700 for the 55-inch model and step up to $1,000 for the 65-inch version.
Another thing we like about these new Hisense TVs is that they feature a built-in Google Assistant, which means you can control everything from lights to A/V equipment, appliances, and more, provided they are also compatible with Google’s smart device ecosystem.
