Hisense has made great use of its association with the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne to showcase two soon-to-be-released 4K ULED televisions – the series 8 and 9.

The premium range models, which boast impressive Ultra-High Definition (UHD) capabilities, were on display during a presentation at the exclusive Red Bull Racing suite at Albert Park.

Hisense Series 7 ULED TVs caused something of a stir when they launched in 2016, helping Hisense become number one in the market share for Australia.

One thing that sets the TVs apart from the rest is they’re much more affordable than most of their premium-brand rivals.

Andre Iannuzzi, head of marketing at Hisense Australia, told Women Love Tech that 2016 was a year of breakthrough success for the company, thanks to the overwhelming popularity of their Series 7 TVs.

Andre expects the popularity will continue once the impressive new models hit the shelves in July.

“I feel that with the Series 8 and Series 9 TVs we’ve really doubled down on our commitment to transform the viewing experience and provide our customers with top-of-the-line TV technology and design,” says Andre.

“We’ve managed to consolidate all the elements people loved about our Series 7 TVs and create a visually improved, more streamlined user experience across the new models.”

The Series 8 will be available in a 55in or 65in display and offer a sleek, industrial design now equipped with considerations for neat cable management.

The models will boast ‘HDR Supreme’ capabilities which will provide a peak brightness of 1000 nits and Wide Colour Gamut that improves upon 2016 models and elevates Hisense’s patented 4K ULED technology into its most premium offering for Australian consumers yet.

The advanced “HDR Supreme” technology will be also be available across Hisense’s flagship Series 9 range, casting the impressive technology over two enormous 75 and 85 inch displays.

The Series 9 will be the brand’s first Australian offering to incorporate quantum dot technology, bringing optimal brightness and unprecedented colour accuracy and saturation to really indulge your home theatre dreams.

Both series will introduce Hisense’s updated and streamlined smart user interface, VIDAA U. The customisable platform adopts a simple, one-dimensional ribbon design user interface that allows users to view items on a single menu, with significantly faster response time than its previous incarnation.

The new Hisense TVs also allow you to access Netflix’s range of HDR content.

VIDAA U can also detect any connected external devices, and comes pre-installed with an array of popular services including Netflix, Stan and Freeview Plus. The dedicated Netflix button on the remote will ensure easy access to as much HDR Netflix content users can handle.

  • 85in Series 9 (85N9) $10,999
  • 75in Series 9 (75N9) $7,999
