CES 2018: Hisense's 2018 TV Lineup Is 'A Whole Other Story' For Australians

This year’s CES was a big one for Hisense with the company showing off a range of new TVs, smartphones, soundbars and other exciting innovations on the show floor. Unfortunately, only three of the products they had on offer are actually set to come to the Australian market.

During their press conference, Hisense talked up their H10E, H9E, H9E Plus, H8E and Laser TV. However, in lieu of the above, Australians will gain access to the edge-lit Series 7, Quantum-Dot enhanced Series 8 and the Series 9 - which features 1000 zone local dimming.

All three TVs support 4K, HLG and HDR10 content. Unfortunately, none include support for Dolby Vision - which is heavily-featured in Hisenses’ US range.

In addition, the Series 7, 8 and 9 all utilise Hisense’s Smooth Motion Rate post-processing tech and rely on the company's latest VIDAA 2.5 smart TV interface. Still, there is a silver lining to be found in this limited range. 

Hisense have announced that their first ever OLED TV will be coming to Australia before the rest of the world.

“In 2017, we experienced the strongest demand ever in the Australian market for our premium ULED 4K products,” said Andre Iannuzzi, Head of Marketing at Hisense Australia.

“We’re thrilled to complement our already successful ULED range by providing Australian customers with even greater choice in the Hisense premium range – the Hisense OLED TV.”

“Hisense aims to provide our customers with the latest technologies and the introduction of OLED in our TV lineup is yet another example of how we are responding to consumer demand by offering a choice of both leading technologies,” Iannuzzi added.

Details are scant as of yet - there’s no word on pricing, sizing or specs. However, given the technical feats that LG, Sony and Panasonic have managed to accomplish with OLED in recent years - it’ll be fascinating to see what Hisense does with the technology when it arrives Down Under.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
