Chinese manufacturer Skyworth has been a large-scale producer of OLED televisions for years. Now, via 9To5Google, the company is bringing some of its TVs state-side. These new Skyworth TVs are powered by Android TV, and they will cost a pretty penny.
There are two different models that come to the states
Both of these TVs are going to be on the higher end of the spectrum. The only difference between them is the size. They are both OLED TVs which allow for the increased contrast, vivid colors and deep blacks that we come to expect. They’re both adorned with 4K panels that also support HDR10.
Most of the text on the Amazon posts is just filler text, but it did mention Chameleon Extreme. This is the company’s image improving technology. Skyworth says that it optimizes the contrast and colors to create an overall stunning image.
These new Skyworth TVs benefit from the Android TV platform
Skyworth gave these TVs the Android TV operating system. This gives them access to a ton of TV-based apps to boost the whole TV-watching experience. Users will also be able to download and stream from different services like Netflix, Disney +, Hulu, and others.
Android TV also lets the users use Google’s Assistant. This is mostly for searching for movies and shows using your voice via the included voice remote.
If you want to pick these TVs up, be prepared to pay a lot
These new Skyworth TVs aren’t exactly cheap, but they should be on par for their market. The first model is the Skyworth XC9000 55-inch, and it comes in at $1,999. Its counterpart is the Skyworth XC9000 65-inch, and it comes in at $1,5000. If you’re interested in picking them up, they’re available to buy now.
Hisense also has TVs and a 100-day tryout period
Hisense took a survey, and it revealed that 80% of people who return their products wish they had more time with them. Because of this, the company just added a 100-day tryout period to some of its TVs. Customers who register their TVs within two weeks of purchase will be able to test out their TV for a full 100 days before returning it.
This doesn’t go for the company’s entire roster of TVs, however. Hisense is only adding this onto its ULED TVs. There are a handful of TVs under this category: the 75-inch U6G, the gaming-centric U7G, U8G, and the top-of-the-line U9DG.
