Hisense officially launched the Hisense 85U9E, the brand’s first 85-inch dual-screen TV with 8K resolution and HDR. The second display of the home entertainment device being a 28-inch full-time assistant display, nestled at the bottom of the main display and in the middles of the TV’s base.
Specs-wise, the main 85-inch display achieves a peak brightness of 2500 nits, has a 150% BT709 wide colour gamut, and a contrast ratio of 80000:1. It also uses a backlight technology called MINI starry sky that stacks the light source and the driver chip on top of each other. Enabling Hisense to create ultra-multiple partitions that each have a 4096 level brightness change.
As for the viewing experience, Hisense says that the 85U9E uses an 8K 10-bit ultra-clear panel along with an AI-powered HDR algorithm. That restores the natural dynamic range by an approximate 1 billion colours. Further, it also says that the brand is capable of running at a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz and 3A games.
Of course, it goes without saying that a TV like the 85U9E isn’t going to be cheap. The TV retails for a hefty 79,999 Yuan (~RM49199), but in all fairness, that’s not the priciest TV we’ve seen on the market to date. At the time of writing, there is no information as to which countries are set to receive the first wave.
