Most of you have probably never heard of Hisense, an upcoming Chinese TV brand, but Hisense had things – interesting things - to show off this year at CES. Hisense took the booth space that was formerly held by Microsoft and showed off new Google TVs, Ultra HD TVs and a glasses-free 3D prototype.

Hisense is coming, there is no doubt about that, and at CES they had some interesting thing to announce. First off is the XT780 range of TVs with Google TV built in. Hisense has created a custom skin for the Google TV platform but all the Google TV features such as streaming apps and unified search are in there. The TV is powered by a Marvell processor and comes with a qwerty remote.

Hisense also announced its first Ultra HD TV line, dubbed XT900. The Ultra TVs also have Google TV baked in as well as WiFi, and USB camera for gesture controls and facial recognition, and active 3D. The XT900 TVs will be available in 65, 84 and massive 110 inch sizes.

Lastly, Hisense exhibited a so-called GF6XT980; a 60-inch glasses-free 3D prototype. Hisense has no plans to commercialize the TV this point as the technology is not ready for the mainstream market but Hisense will see what happens in the next few years.
No words on pricing or availability but look out for Hisense in your local store in the near future.
