The Hisense 75U9E TV will soon arrive in Europe. The Chinese brand has already confirmed its exit on the German market, although without indicating a specific date or an indicative list price. As for the technical specifications, the absence of HDMI 2.1 inputs seems to be confirmed (therefore it could not handle 8K resolution input signals) even if we await further confirmation on this point.
Hisense will present the TV H75U9E at CES 2019. This new model is a QLED and therefore an LCD with Quantum Dot. The 10-bit 75 “panel has an 8K resolution (7680 x 4320 pixels) and uses a very sophisticated Full LED backlight. Local dimming has the same number of zones as the U9D series presented at IFA 2018. The count is at 5,376 zones with a division into 96 columns and 56 rows French sources refer to the use of 3 mm diodes against those of 10 mm normally found on televisions of this type.
The leaked specifications show a 100 Hz refresh rate and HDR compatibility in HDR10 and HLG formats. The brightness peaks are the same as those reported for the U9D series: 2,500 cd / m2 – nits. The motion compensation is left to the Ultra Motion technology. One speaks then of a complete coverage (100%) of the DCI-P3 color space. The Smart TV platform is VIDAA U, the operating system developed by Hisense, updated here to the latest version. There are all the most popular applications and services: web browsers, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Wuaki.tv, YouTube and so on. All functions are managed by a quad-core processor.
Aesthetically, the product is presented with a refined design. The front side is characterized by a glass insert that also acts as a support base. A soundbar has been placed in the lower part. The TV is slightly inclined towards the back and supported by a back support (with a shape reminiscent of a fin) that also integrates a subwoofer. The end result is quite similar to that used by Sony for the A1 and AF9 series.
