I then asked if they'd be releasing something to replace u9a but I got no response.Hi, no these are US models only and running Android. We don’t have an equivalent to compare I’m afraid.
The list below is the range we will be launching from June – from entry HD 32” to 55” OLED
Same. I'm after a couple of 50" FALD TV's. They simply aren't availible in the UK though. I sent Hisense UK a tweet recently saying people in the UK want FALD and they got back to me saying they would pass the feedback onto thier department. So the more of us that tweet them telling them we want FALD the more likely we will get them. Just a shame they aren't here right now like they are in the US. The US has lots of FALD options with Samsung, TCL, Hisense, Vizio etc etc.Think we are getting slightly different versions in the UK called the u7b, and u8b. The latter has 130 dimmable ones and 1000 nts HDR, being advertised for sale on amazon for £1099 (65 inch). The good news is that they include dolby vision, HDR+, but would have been nice if they had more dimmable zones. The next model up is this years u9a which doesn't have vision or HDR+. The USA models are Android and include quantum dot, which we don't get in the UK. I have the last Hisense FALD K720 which is brilliant, and would be interested in a new FALD from Hisense.
It's a bit odd as when you watch AV forums interview Hisense UK recently they seem pretty clued up and have a plan in place. But to me it seems like they have gotten it pretty wrong. They said they basically want to muscle in and be one of the top 3 brands and grow to be a more popular brand etc. But they are missing so many tricks. And when you watch what YouTubers they give their 2019 sets out to review those YouTubers haven't got much of a clue at all. They give them out to totally wrong YouTubers. One review i watched they just spent the entire video talking about android on it. And most of them don't mention they are FALD.That is a shame think I read somewhere that they are carrying forwards U9a, although AO have it on clearance. The new 75 ULED is only available in China. Seems like they don't have a plan. A decent 65" with a high number of FALD zones, 2000 nts, dolby vision would do very well.
I've seen the H50U7BUK in Argos. Its yet another edge lit TV for the UK market. Everything below that model is edge lit or bottom lit and above is OLED. I'm not sure who will pay £1499 for a Hisense OLED. It seems LG is the go to for OLED in the UK and you can get an LG OLED for £999. Give people the choice between the 2 and they take the LG OLED home 100% of the time i bet. Because LG is one of the top names and well known for OLED.Hi, I asked hisense about these a few weeks ago. I got this response.

Just as i said this news has come in that Philips has pulled out of selling it's 2019 OLED's in Australia as Hisense has just suffered big losses releasing its high end OLED's in Australia. It's so obvious that if you release a high end Hisense OLED that costs more than LG OLED you are setting yourself up for a fall. When it comes to OLED LG is main name that people think of when they think OLED. And Hisense is seen as a cheap brand. It's like trying to get people to pay more for a KIA car when they can buy a Bently for a cheaper price. Philips drops OLED TV launch Down Under after Hisense failure Someone at Hisenese's research department needs firing.I'm not sure who will pay £1499 for a Hisense OLED. It seems LG is the go to for OLED in the UK and you can get an LG OLED for £999. Give people the choice between the 2 and they take the LG OLED home 100% of the time i bet.
