Earlier this year in January, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Hisense announced its lineup of smart Android TVs — HiSense H9E Plus 4k TVs, along with a number of other Hisense TVs including H10E TV, H6E-series, and the H8E-series.
Now, the company has announced that the H9E Plus 4K TVs are now available to purchase in the United States directly from the company’s website, as well as from Walmart and Best Buy. Hisense has revealed that two models are currently available for purchase.
One of the two models is the 55-inch model (55H9100E Plus), which is the more affordable option as it carries a price tag of $699.99 MSRP price, while on the other hand, the larger 65-inch model (65H9100E Plus) comes with a price tag of $1,199.99.
As said, these 4K-enabled TV sets come loaded with Android TV as the main interface and also features Google Assistant. This enables users to take advantage of Google TV to browse content and control using Google Assistant. It also syncs seamlessly with Google Home while helping users personalize their entertainment with a huge suite of compatible apps.
Further, it comes with Hisense TV exclusive built-in 2018 FIFA World Cup Edition app which offers five live 4K HDR video feeds, highlights from 32 potential camera angles, on-demand match replays and FOX’s gripping documentary series “Phenoms,” which chronicles the journey of soccer’s biggest rising stars.
Besides 4K and smart features, the H9E Plus line features Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10 support (which varies depending on model), along with Motion Rate 240, UHD upscaling, and sound tuned by Harman Kardon, depending on the model.
In terms of design, the TV comes with a bezel-less design and for connectivity, it has four HDMI ports, two USB ports, and Bluetooth audio out. For those who aren’t happy with the Google Assistant smart home ecosystem, both H9E models are also said to support Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant as well.
