New Hisense TVs at CES 2020

From the official press release:


Hisense Unveils Diverse Product Lineup at CES 2020, Combining the Latest Technology and Upgraded Picture Quality to Elevate the Viewing Experience

Witness the latest in home entertainment innovation at Hisense’s booth at CES, LVCC, Central Hall - 10039

LAS VEGAS - (Jan. 6, 2020) - Hisense, provider of high-performance televisions and appliances, unveils its 2020 TV lineup that combines new technologies, such as ULED, multiple content platforms, and smart home capabilities in a sleek package at a competitive price point. Hisense is now the #5 TV brand in the U.S. in units and is the fastest growing top 6 TV brands in the U.S. Hisense is committed to bringing the latest technological innovations to market and seamlessly blending the latest in software with sleek hardware to provide premium product offerings to consumers.

“Our industry-leading growth in 2019 was driven by our focus on quality and innovation. The industry took notice, and the H9F continues to receive accolades, routinely named by experts as the top choice in the coveted sub-$1,000 category,” says David Gold, Hisense U.S.A. Vice President, Consumer Electronics. “Hisense will build on that success in 2020. Consumers are tired of being dazzled with unattainable technology. Our lineup brings high-performing products that are not only accessible for the consumer yearning for an enhanced experience, but exceed expectations in each of their respective categories.”

L5 4K Ultra Short Throw Laser TV: A Full Cinematic Experience at an Unbelievable Price
Hisense is bringing the big-screen experience - once only seen in cinemas - into almost any room of the home with the new L5 Series. The L5 offers a far more affordable and energy efficient solution than large LCD screens, and delivers true-to-life images that exceed the standard 4K color range.

The L5’s blue laser light source produces razor-sharp, precise images with stunning detail, all while avoiding unwanted light dispersion and offering a more natural viewing experience. Fast-moving images appear smooth and precise, making it the ideal source for watching sports, enjoying fast-action movies and gaming. Embedded speakers featuring dbx-tv provide a superior audio experience, and Android TV brings plenty of content options with more than 5,000 apps and games from the Google Play Store to the 100” screen.

H9G Quantum Series: A Series Favorite Delivers Even More Features in 2020
Featuring Hisense’s patented ULED technology for enhanced picture quality, the H9G Quantum Dot Series includes even more upgrades in 2020 at a highly competitive price point. The addition of Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos image and sound technologies provide enhanced color and immersive audio. Additional local dimming zones paired with Quantum Dot results in a true-to-life watching experience, and Android TV brings over 500,000 movies and shows, plus video streaming from Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and others, making it easy to find your favorite content. In-bezel microphones and far-field voice control makes H9G a true smart home hub.

With the Google Assistant built into the H9G series, users can do more on the TV with just their voice. Ask the Assistant to search for the latest blockbuster or stream shows. You can also ask it questions and see the answers on the TV. Have it dim the lights by connecting smart home devices, or manage tasks and see calendars without needing to grab another device. With screenless mode, you can access the Assistant on the TV even when it’s off. It acts like a Google Assistant speaker. When you want to see a response to a question or command, the Assistant will know to turn on the TV.

H8G Quantum Series: Quantum Dot Technology Brings a Premium Viewing Experience
The H8G Quantum Series gets a major enhancement in 2020 with the addition of Quantum Dot technology. Featuring Hisense’s patented ULED technology, Hi-View Engine, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, the H8G Series provides an exceptional viewing experience at an affordable price. Now with screen sizes reaching up to 75”, viewers can enjoy richer colors and greater detail with the addition of more local dimming zones, all on a user-friendly platform. With integrated Android technology, users can easily stream thousands of movies and shows from a variety of platforms such as Netflix, Hulu and YouTube. The Hisense Android TV features a voice remote for easy browsing, and the built-in Google Assistant allows users to quickly search and access entertainment, get answers from Google, control smart home devices, and more.

H65G Series: An array for 4K UHD Android TV Options
Hisense brings even more Android TV options in 2020 with the H65G Series, a 4K ultra high definition TV featuring Dolby Vision, DTS Virtual: X, Motion Rate Technology, and Bluetooth Audio. Great for gaming, streaming your favorite movies or TV shows and listening to music, with six available screen sizes, the H65G has an option for every room and budget. The TV is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, letting users control the TV via Alexa-enabled and Google Home devices.

XD9G: 4K ULED XD TV
Unveiled at CES 2019, Hisense will also have the XD9G on display this year. The XD9G features Hisense’s proprietary ULED XD technology. The television integrates Quantum Dot technology, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The fusion of Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos transforms entertainment experiences through ultra vivid picture quality – incredible brightness, contrast, color, and detail – and immersive moving audio that flows all around a listener. In-bezel microphones and smart features, such as far-field voice control and integrated Google Assistant, make the TV a smart home hub.

Roku TV
Roku is America’s #1 TV streaming platform, and Hisense Roku TV models offer consumers a customizable home screen, thousands of free and paid streaming channels and advanced features like fast and easy search across top channels with results ranked by price search. The Roku home screen puts a customer’s favorite entertainment in one place so it’s easier than ever to watch what they love, including live TV, news, sports, hit movies, popular shows and more. Plus, consumers will always get the latest features with automatic updates. They also get access to the free Roku mobile app with even more features like Roku Voice and private listening. For additional voice control, customers can use Alexa-enabled devices and/or the Google Assistant to control a Roku TV.

R8F Series: First ULED 4K Hisense Roku TV
Combining stellar picture quality from Hisense with the Roku OS, the R8F Series provides incredible color, a detailed picture and fluid motion during action, sports and gaming sequences.

As the first 4K ULED Hisense Roku TV model, the R8F is a testament to the company’s five decades of innovation, expertise and product excellence. The R8F supports Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG to create astonishing images with enhanced color and more depth. With Motion Rate processing technology, viewers can enjoy the action of sports and games without lag or judder.

R6E3 Series: 4K Ultra High Definition Hisense Roku TV
The R6E3 Series brings an array of options for any room of the house and any budget, and also features a new, sleek bezel-less design. With over 8 million pixels, the R6E3 offers a clearer, more defined picture than Full HD, and DTS Studio Sound provides full, detailed sound from the TV’s speakers. For even more control, customers can use Alexa or Google Assistant enabled devices to control the TV.

H4G Series: Affordable Smart TV Ideal for Cord Cutters and Streamers
The Hisense Roku TV H4G Series is ideal for binge-watchers on a budget. Equipped with built-in Wi-Fi and faster search, users can activate and find their favorite shows, and sit back and enjoy the rich 2K picture. Customers can also use Alexa or Google Assistant enabled devices to control the TV.

TCL and Hisense have really upped their game the past 2 years, and have really put Samsung and Sony on notice that they are here to play and stay!

Hisense H8G is now a active product on Amazon. Not available to purchase just yet though.
HINT: Despite not being mentioned by Hisense themselves, both the H8G and the H9G will also support HDR10+ format too so that makes Hisense another brand here in North America that supports all HDR format standards (HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision).

Pretty sure the R8F is just an H8F with Roku instead of Android. Someone else mentioned it on another thread recently:
https://www.avsforum.com/forum/166-l...sense-r8f.html

It's kind of pricey (55 is $449 @ Walmart US) given the H8F has been on deals (clearance?) for significantly less in the past couple months. I have a TCL 5-series w/Roku and a Hisense H8F with Android, and TBH I'm not sure I'd want the H8F with Roku, though a lot of people have complained about Android being "sluggish" or "laggy". I actually think it's not that bad, though trying to make adjustments when streaming is going on is a bit messed up. Also the MSRP for the R8F seems to be the same as the H8G for the same sizes...so who would buy the R8F? Guessing in reality the R8F will be cheaper.

H8G seems like a great replacement for the H8F, with [hopefully] a little higher brightness and larger sizes offered. This will be going up against TCL's R62x, no doubt. I wonder if they upgraded the SoC...doubtful given it's never mentioned but maybe. However again prices won't be nearly as good as the outgoing H8F; prices probably not too great until BF I'd imagine.

The real gem is supposed to be the dual-panel XD9G of course, but the release date and the price are another story. Seems like it won't be out until Q4 or so, especially with the "situation" the world is in right now. Now this TV has the potential to blow everything out of the water. Though I doubt it will really put one over on Sony, Samsung, it does have the potential if they get the processing right. Even with non-spectacular processing though, I think it will be awesome and probably set a new standard for LCDs in some regards. We'll have to wait and see of course.

I don't think the H8G will be able to compete with TCL's 2020 R6 Series. That will feature MiniLED. Hisense is only increasing their dimming zones by 50% this year. Which means the 50" would have 48 zones (instead of 32), the 55 inch would have 84 zones (instead of 56), and the 65" would have 90 zones (instead of 60). They have also stated the brightness (700 nits but falls well short of that unless using Vivid Mode which reaches 680 nits on the H8F) would be the same but have a Quantum Dot Panel this year like their H9 Series.

YES, I was at CES 2020 and noticed the HDR10+ listed on the H9G, so I asked the rep and he confirmed it, but since it was not "official", they couldn't put it in writing anywhere apparently.

Considering both Sony and Samsung are simply carrying over their 2019 LCD TV technologies without picture quality improvements, it shouldn't be hard for the H9G to close this gap further. Last year's H9F was already so great, and arguably the superior of the Samsung Q70. Maybe this year the H9G can take the leap and match the Q90T.

Yeah but the thing there is I think TCL is going to continue to sell the R62x for a good while (even see that they are still selling the 2018 R61x) so that "2020 6-series" (R63x?) won't come until later this year I don't think. Plus it will very likely be priced higher than the R62x and sell alongside it. So the H8G will compete more with the R62x and not the MiniLED 6-series.

Hisense H9G Question/Release?

My TV just died 2 days ago and am looking for a replacement in the next month or so. The Hisense H9F has been highly recommended, but while doing my research, I found that the H9G is supposed to come out this month. I have not found any news about a release date, or whether the COVID-19 virus has pushed back the release, but since it is so close to coming out, I don't want to buy the old model. Has anyone heard/found any news regarding its release schedule?

H9F has been very hard to find but is a very good set. If you can find it and need a TV now, feel good about getting it. If you can’t find it (probably the more likely scenario), then pick out a few other options that meet your timeframe. Can’t see them announcing and having the new sets here in less than a month.

H9F has been hard to find during it’s entire existence and haven’t seen HiSense doing much to bring the H9G availability up any differently.
