Hisense is a Chinese company you may or may not have heard of. It has jumped in on what seems to be the prevailing trend of CES with six UHD TVs.
There are two series. The XT880 3D and Wi-Fi models come in 50-inch, 58-inch and 65-inch versions. Then there are the higher-end, bigger XT900 series, which come in 65-inch, 84-inch and 110-inch versions. The XT900s also has a USB-mounted detachable camera for video calling and gesture controls, and they are 3D-capable.
Pricing and availability is yet to be confirmed. But we've heard they should fall somewhere around the $US5000-$US6000 range, which would be pretty damn good as far as UHD TVS go.
Hisense has also officially unveiled two new Google TVs. The XT780 line comes in 55-inch and 65-inch models. With these two TVs, you get access to an array of Google products like Chrome, search, YouTube and Google Play. It also might solve some of your TV frustrations, with a double-sided remote that includes a full keyboard.
On top of that, these televisions want you to multitask, because you're going to be doing that anyway — it has a multi-screen feature so you can troll Facebook while say, watching Dexter. Not that you need anymore encouragement to do that.
Hisense also served up a glasses-free 3D TV, which you might not care about because 3D continues to fail to be an actual thing. But what's interesting here is that Hisense is a newer player doing some really interesting things — and often for less money than the other big guys.
