Hisense XT880 promises to bring down the price of admission for UHD TVs

China-based Hisense has introduced its own range of connected, Ultra High-Definition (no longer officially and technically referred to as 4K) TVs, with the XT880 range. The 50-, 58-, and 65-inch sets all sport 3,840x2,160 resolution and get a number of so-called 'Smart' features such as Wi-Fi for web access and an Android 4.0-based operating system. The remote control will allow users to issue voice commands, while a removable camera will allow for face recognition, gesture control, and video chats over Skype.

The sets will also have 3D capability built-in. They will use ARM-based, dual-core processors and promises access to apps, games, and social networks. Otherwise, the XT880 range will sport automatic backlight control, contrast enhancement and what its makers call class-leading video processing and scaling features.

What's not yet being shared are the key details such as price and availability. The XT880s will be on display at CES, however, and prices should certainly cost less than Sony's $25,000 84-inch UHDTV, the XBR84X900 or LG's same-sized and $20,000 84LM9600.
