Hisense XT880 to bring Ultra HD TV to more sensible screen sizes

Hisense has announced plans to launch Ultra High Definition (Ultra HD) TV sets at a significantly lower price - and size - than those currently on the market.

While most manufacturers are limiting their Ultra HD launches to large-screen test sets costing upwards of £10,000, Hisense has announced that it will shortly launch the XT880 Ultra HD TV family in 50in, 58in, and 65in sizes - a significant drop from the current crop of 84in and larger displays.

The Hisense XT880 range includes a 3,840x2,160 resolution panel offering four times the detail of 1080p Full HD and including full 3D capabilities when connected to a 3D-compatible picture source. The TVs also include Smart TV functionality powered by Google's Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, can access the internet over an internal Wi-Fi connection, install apps and games, and make voice calls over the Skype voice-over-IP (VoIP) service.

A remote control with voice recognition technology is also planned, letting the user speak into its integrated microphone to change channel, adjust volume settings or launch an application.

"The XT880 series brings together all of the latest features available on high-end televisions today," JoAnne Foist, Hisense's director of marketing, said at the announcement. "With automatic backlight control, contrast enhancement and the XT880's best-in-class video processing and scaling features, the XT880 represents the pinnacle of Hisense's R&D strengths and bold design language."

What Hisense has yet to share is pricing. With current-generation Ultra HD TVs costing more than £10,000, the company certainly has room to undercut its rivals with smaller and cheaper models.
