Hisense’s Newest 4K & 8K Quantum Dot ULED TVs Deliver Unbelievable Specs
Juan Carlos Ropel, September 13, 2017
Hisense recently showcased a new line-up of high-end ULED TVs at IFA 2017, the new NU9800 and NU8700 series, which feature local dimming and Quantum Dot technology.
If the term “ULED” confuses you, this is nothing but a rebranding acronym Hisense uses to tag “ultra” features of their quantum dot LCD screens, which include: “Ultra” Wide Colour Gamut, “Ultra” Local Dimming, Ultra HD 4K Resolution and “Ultra” Smooth Motion Rate technology. Specifically, ULED has nothing to do with OLED technology of the kind you’re probably familiar with in ultra-premium LG or Sony OLED 4K HDR TVs.
This year Hisense teamed-up with world-leading TV manufacturers Samsung and TCL to form a “QLED Alliance”, to make QLED a serious competitor against Sony and LG, which also formed a similar coalition to promote and distribute OLED TVs.
More recently, at the IFA technology fair in Berlin, Hisense showcased its stunning NU9800 model from its 9 Series, also referred to as the“75N9””, a 75-inch LCD Behemoth with 1056-zone local dimming and Quantum Dot technology integration. This is Hisense’s brightest panel yet manufactured, and the results are truly impressive indeed: the TV can reach an impressive 2200 Nits of peak brightness, one of the highest in the market, and it delivers 100% DCI-P3 color space coverage for exceptional HDR wide color gamut, according to Hisense.
This model also supports HDR10 and it’s 4k Ultra HD Premium-certified, with a resolution of 3840×2160. It has a native contrast ratio of well over 4000:1 and it runs on Hisense Vidaa U operating system.
At IFA, Hisense also showcased a 65-inch LCD TV with 8K resolution of 7680×4320 pixels (more than 16 million pixels), the model has been dubbed as the LED65MU9800V or MU9800. This ULED has a 240-zone local dimming arrangement in its full-array LED backlight panel and it reaches a peak brightness of 800 nits while covering a very decent 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space.
It’s worth pointing out that this is not the first time that both of these models have been exhibited in public, but they certainly made a great impression at IFA 2017.
The pricing and the availability of these extremely advanced TVs are yet to be announced by Hisense.
