Samsung and LG might be dominating the premium TV category right now, but don’t tell that to the people at Hisense who have made very impressive progress over the past 3 years when it comes to improving the quality of their TV’s and their market penetration. Hisense has a huge presence at CES 2023 and a very impressive lineup of new ULED models for consumers to consider.

The brand is now #2 worldwide and also owns the rights to Toshiba TV moving forward.

In 2023, the brand is taking its commitment to making premium technology accessible even further with 14 Mini LED TVs for every budget across four series. Many of this year’s models include gaming support at 144 Hz VRR and NEXTGEN TV (ATSC 3.0) support for 4K over-the-air broadcasts. All models are powered by the Google TV platform.

What’s notable is that all three 2023 Hisense ULED TV series use Mini LED technology and will be available in 85-inch screen sizes, which means we expect to see some incredible values for the first time at that screen size.

U6K Series

Interestingly the entry-level 2023 Hisense U6K series implements Mini LED technology and could very well be the most affordable model of that type this year. It will certainly be the most affordable Hisense Mini LED TV, but we’ll have to wait until competitor pricing is revealed.

2023 Hisense U6K models combine ULED with Mini LED technology, Quantum Dot, more local dimming zones and higher peak brightness over last year’s models, along with Dolby Atmos and eARC for audio. Plus there’s support for picture features like Dolby Vision HDR, HDR 10+, Quantum Dot, MEMC and FilmMaker Mode. Meanwhile Game Mode and Dolby Vision with a 60Hz VRR and auto-low latency mode ensure a fun gaming experience.

The U6K will be priced from $500 and arrive in sizes from 50 to 85-inches.

U7K Series

These ULED TVs are Calman ready for optimizing color and feature packed with support for Dolby Vision IQ, HDR10+, HLR Quantum Dot, IMAX Enhanced, and FilmMaker Mode. Dolby Atmos and eARC are supported along with WiSA SoundSend for wireless speaker connectivity.

Gamers will appreciate that the U7K supports next-gen consoles, including an upgraded 144Hz Variable Refresh Rate for smooth, tear-free motion.
