Hisense's 2016 TVs are now shipping in the US

30 May 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Hisense revealed its 2016 line-up in January and the TVs are now shipping in the US, slightly later than originally planned. The new H8 series incorporates full-array LED with “multi-zone” dimming for HDR and is starting at $600.

Hisense is trying to expand beyond China and has set its eyes on the US and Europe. The line-up discussed here is destined for the US only. It is currently led by the new H8 series but later this year Hisense will add the high-end H10 range to the line-up.

H8 features “multi-zone” full-array local dimming but it is not clear how many zones it employs. Hisense says that H8 offers 4K and HDR (HDR10) support as well as HDMI 2.0. The company adds that it can reproduce an “enhanced dynamic range in 1.07 billion colors”, suggesting that it supports 10-bit. The TV has not been “UHD Premium” certified.

Hisense has joined Google as an Android TV partner but this year’s line-up will come with a “proprietary smart platform with a new user interface”, developed by Hisense’s R&D lab in Atlanta. It offers access to 4K streaming from Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube. Hisense has not confirmed when it plans to start incorporating Android TV in its TVs.

Despite having its own TV platform, Hisense will also offer affordable H4 models built on the Roku platform. These TVs are shipping now and Hisense has also started shipping affordable H5 and H3 series TVs.

Hisense originally planned to start shipping most of the new TVs in February and to add H8 in April but the launch was slightly postponed. The company says that the TVs are now rolling out to stores in the US. The company will launch the flagship H10 range in the second half of 2016.

FlatpanelsHD has spotted H8 at Best Buy and H4 at Amazon.
