The company's latest Smart TV runs Android 4.2.2 and will offer a new interface and advanced controls.
Hisense has detailed a new addition to its TV lineup, the H6 Smart TV. The display will be powered by Google services for TV with Android 4.2.2, and will be available in 40-inch, 50-inch, and 55-inch models. Likewise, the company is also launching a separate Android set top box, the Pulse PRO, which will bring Smart TV functionality to any connected display.
Under the hood, the H6 Smart TV features Marvell's latest ARMADA 1500 Plus HD Media processor, and offers a 120Hz refresh rate, Energy Star 6.0 qualification, 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM. In addition, the TV includes the Hisense Social TV App and Hisense Cloud Services Hi-Media Player and Receiver. The Pulse PRO set top box offers similar functionality, including support for Netflix, Vudu HD Movies, Amazon Instant Video, Chrome, YouTube, and Google Play, and features HDMI, Ethernet, and Bluetooth connectivity.
"Android delivers on the promise of Smart. Today, by seamlessly coupling Hisense's television expertise, Marvell's high performing and innovative ARMADA 1500 Plus platform and Android's connectivity and interactivity, Hisense is delivering on the promise of a truly smart TV — and making it accessible to broad markets here in North America and across the globe," said Jonathan Frank, Vice President of Marketing, Hisense USA. "We are proud to bring Google services for Smart TV to the market with the H6 and the Pulse PRO. Hisense provides a comfortable, lean-back experience, with an elegant, simple remote with MIC for voice control and functionality that is simply phenomenal. And if you're not quite ready to invest in a new TV, but would like the latest and greatest Android platform, get the Pulse PRO set-top box."
