Hisense has just taken the wraps off its new 8K flagship ULED TV, the Hisense U800GR, which costs significantly less than other 8K TVs on the market.
Available starting December 8, the 75-inch model will come in at $2,699.99 at Best Buy and Amazon – around $1,000 less than the 75-inch Samsung QN800A and $2,500 less than the Samsung QN900A, Samsung’s two latest 8K TVs.
The only 8K TV we know about with a comparable price tag is the TCL 6-Series 8K Roku TV (R648) that was released earlier this year and shares many of the same specs as Hisense’s U800GR.
According to a press release sent to TechRadar, the U800GR comes with 180 local dimming zones – frighteningly fewer than its 4K flagship Hisense U9DG that has upwards of 2,000,000 – and will support both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
The TV has a native 120Hz refresh rate plus auto low latency game mode and Variable Refresh Rate technology as well as at least two HDMI 2.1 ports.
