Konka delays US launch of OLED as it launches Android LCD TVs

19 Aug 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

Konka is launching new Android LCD TVs starting from $140, or $240 with 4K resolution. The OLED TVs announced at CES will be delayed to 2021.

Konka reenters the US

China's Konka is reentering the US TV market with three LCD TV ranges; H3, U5 and Q7 Pro. Ranging from 32 to 75 inches, all of the new LCD TVs feature direct LED without local dimming zones and either HD or 4K resolution. All of the new LCD TVs also run Google's Android TV platform, which offers access to streaming services such as Disney+, Netflix, and HBO. - "We're very excited to announce that our high-performance Konka Android TVs are shipping now!" said Scott Ramirez, SVP of sales, Konka NA. "When consumers experience these Konka TVs, they'll immediately see the difference, and everyone will know there's a new player in town that's offering a higher level of quality and value."

Konka 2020 LCD TV

Konka is a top-5 TV brand in its home country of China. It has previously tried to enter the US market without luck. At CES 2020, it announced that it will reenter the market, now with Google's Android and a broad line-up of low to high-end TVs. However, the 55- and 65-inch OLED TVs that Konka unveiled at CES 2020 as high-end TVs will not make it to the US this year as planned, the company confirmed to HDGuru, saying that the company "decided to postpone our OLED TV launch until 2021 and instead focus on launching QLED TV as our advanced panel technology for 2020." The new LCD-based Android TVs from Konka will start shipping in the US this month.
