Hisense revealed its 2019 product lineup at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, debuting Android TV and Roku TV sets.
Hisense recently released the Dual Color Laser TV (L10E), featuring a red and blue laser light source that combine to unlock a Wide Color Gamut. The evolution of Hisense's exclusive ULED technology is powering a collection of televisions in 2019.
Leading the pack of ULED TVs is the Hisense U9F, a Quantum Dot TV with picture quality experience that tops 2,200 nits of superior brightness, has more than 1,000 local dimming zones to deliver better contrast and features Dolby Vision to add dramatic detail with HDR-compatible content. Hisense's proprietary ULED technology, incorporating a Hi-View chip set and a series of AI-based picture quality algorithms, further automatically recognizes content to improve color, contrast, motion and brightness.
The Hisense H9F is a 4K ULED Android TV with more than 1,000 nits of brightness, Quantum Dot and Wide Color Gamut along with dbx-tv studio sound.
The Hisense H8F series doubles the brightness achieved in previous iterations and, for the first time in the series' history, benefits from ULED enhancements. It supports the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa for voice interaction.
The Hisense Roku TV 4K UHD R8 series is the first TV to combine ULED advancements with the viewing experience of Roku TV. It supports Dolby Vision HDR, Dolby Atmos, has a Full Array Local Dimming, Wide Color Gamut and 700 nits brightness. Cord-cutters and cable or satellite subscribers will have an abundance of viewing choices through the Roku OS with 500,000+ movies and TV episodes available through thousands of free and paid channels. Free content is available through the Roku Channel. Featured Free, which provides users with direct links to free in-season episodes from top network shows and full past-season catch-ups, adds to the many content sources offered by the R8.

But the headlining product at Hisense's booth at CES is the Sonic One TV, a “self-contained” TV with a piezoelectric speaker that allows sound to be delivered from the panel to viewers sitting nearby. It’s a super thin television, measuring just 1.1 inches at its thickest point.
In addition, the new Hisense 4K Smart TriChroma laser TV (100L7T) uses the primary colors — red, green, and blue — with three separate lasers to produce a wide array of colors (including what Hisense dubs “pure white”), a 32-microsecond refresh rate serving 8.3 million pixels, and, to top it off, it reaches 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color space, further ensuring its color accuracy. A TI DLP chip enables fast motion speeds with a 32 micro-second refresh rate for 8.3 million pixels
Pricing and retail availability for the Sonic One and the TriChroma have not been announced.In addition, a new 145-inch Adonis MD MicroLED Display uses more than 10 million microscopic LEDs, which provide better contrast, brightness and motion fluidity while also maintaining energy efficiency. The Hisense Adonis MD maintains a 0.833mm pixel pitch.
