Hisense’s 2022 series is known for its competitively priced TVs that perform well with the largest display manufacturers and introduce a host of new features for all users.
From home theater viewing to high-end gaming, every new product coming soon from Hisense promises to deliver a strong balance of performance and cost. Against the backdrop of a packed Accor stadium for the first NRL State of Origin match in 2022 – Hisense is a major sponsor of the competition – local representatives launched the brand’s latest range, which will arrive in retailers from the end of June.
Entry Level ULED – Upgrades for Gamers on a Budget
The U7HAU is the latest baseline 4K Hisense TV, which will support some key gaming features for the first time. With HDMI 2.1 support, it can play games at 120Hz and has a special game mode with variable refresh rate and automatic low latency to produce a highly responsive image and eliminate screen tearing.
Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos are also part of the U7HAU TVs, along with adaptive features like local dimming to help with HDR content. Because ULED is Hisense’s backlight TV technology, it won’t necessarily show darker colors as deep as an OLED screen, but it’s well-suited to open spaces with mixed lighting due to its brightness.
The U7HAU is available in five sizes and comes in 55 ($1,499), 65 ($1,899), 75 ($2,499), 85 ($3,999), and 98 inches ($7,999). Expect to see these TVs in major electronics stores by the end of the month.
Hisense supports Mini-LED and brings back OLED
Hisense strives to give you options when it comes to TV panel lighting. The brand continues with the Mini LED technology, which is used in the U8HAU and U9HAU models. Mini-LED technology is Hisense’s method of bridging the gap between brightness and contrast. Powered by thousands of tiny lights behind the panel, it reduces the glow or faded gray effect seen in some backlit screens, meaning greater contrast between bright and dark scenes.
Both Mini-LED models from 2022 will be available from July. The U8HAU is available in 55 ($1,999), 65 ($2,499) and 75-inch ($3,499) sizes. Meanwhile, the U9HAU uses a “Pro” version of the Mini LED technology and supports 2.1.2 Dolby Atmos sound (the U8HAU only has Dolby Atmos) in its 65 ($2,799) and 75-inch ($3,999) models.
After not launching OLED TVs in Australia for a while, Hisense is bringing them back with the X8HAU and X9HAU displays. What sets the two apart is the unique sound system in the X9HAU. Billed as a “360-degree audio experience” by Hisense, it includes a dedicated subwoofer and two upward-firing speakers in addition to the sonic screen, adding more audio depth than conventional built-in TV speakers.
The X8HAU, which arrives at retailers after August, will come in a 55-inch ($2,799) or 65-inch option, while the X9HAU is only available in 65-inch ($4,299). Like most of the new Hisense TVs, the OLED models will run on the VIDAAA U6 OS, which now natively supports Apple TV+ and Disney+, alongside many of the other major streaming services, including an exclusive NRL TV app.
TriChroma Laser makes creating a home theater easy
Hisense’s latest TV launch stems from the recent home theater technology launched earlier this year, the TriChroma Laser TV (120L9G)† Similar to what other brands do – like the LG CineBeam Projector Series – the TriChroma Laser TV is able to beam a huge image up onto a wall from a short distance. It comes with its own wall-mounted ambient light rejection screen, available with the main projection unit in 100 ($6,499) or 120-inch ($7,499) versions.
I was able to spend some hands-on (eye-on?) time with the TriChroma, testing it out with some fast F1 action from Ride to surviveand Gravity, one of my favorite movies. It showed fast movements impressively well and showed great image clarity on the custom screen. GravityThe dark space scenes were beautifully captured in a dimly lit room, adding to the film’s superb cinematography.
Regardless of your home theater needs, Hisense seems to have something for everyone. Having seen a selection of TVs up close, the bargain brand’s current and future display options impress on paper and in person.
