Hisense has unveiled its new ultra HD TVs which are hitting the South African market.
The latest premium 4K television models, the flagship 75″ N9700 (75N9700UWG) and the 65″ N8700 (65N8700UWG), continue to push the technology forward, making these the obvious choice for discerning viewers.
The 2017 flagship model – the 75N9700 (pictures above) – carries the distinction of being the largest ULED TV that Hisense has introduced yet, Featuring a unique design, the 75N9700 sees a Dolby Digital-enabled sound bar situated below the narrow aluminium frame that houses its Quantum Dot technology display. The flagship offers an unmatched brightness of 2,200 nits.
If 75” is too much screen to handle, the 65″ 65N8700 is perfect for the living room, sporting a variety of noteworthy design features. These include a frameless, ultra-slim 8.9 mm body, along with Dolby Digital audio functionality, all of which sits on a centrally mounted aluminium stand for a sophisticated aesthetic. Coupled with its sleek design, the 65N8700 delivers peak brightness of 1,000 nits.
The backlight in the TVs has been engineered such that it’s divided into hundreds of zones, which minimises the impact from each zone by controlling them individually. This means that blacks can be darker, and whites can be brighter, without being influenced by backlight of adjacent areas.
As with most of Hisense’s ULED TVs, the 75N9700 and 65N8700 boast breath-taking 4K displays, each serving up a rich 3840×2160 resolution and wider colour gamut compared to normal LED TVs. Added to this is HDR (High Dynamic Range) Supreme, which enhances the brightness and contrast of the televisions’ picture quality across the board. With high-end gaming consoles all favouring HDR to showcase their newest titles, having this feature while playing a game like Horizon: Zero Dawn on a PS4 Pro is a huge bonus.
On the Smart TV front, Hisense has integrated the new VIDAA U operating system on both models. Designed to turn the television into a home entertainment hub once connected to a Wi-Fi network, they present users with an easy-to-navigate interface and a variety of apps to enjoy.
