Hisense to Debut 4K UHD 3D Android TV

The XT880 has a 2160p resolution panel, facial recognition, gesture control, and more.


Who exactly is Hisense? The Chinese-based company first caught our attention last month, announcing a series of 3D TVs with a starting price of $499.99. Now, the company is looking to snag a slice of the Ultra High Definition (UHD) audience, with plans for the XT880.

The XT880 is a new 3D Smart TV that also happens to be a UHD TV (Ultra High Definition). That means this is a 2160p TV, with a resolution of 3840×2160.

Hisense plans to make the XT880 Series available in 50-, 58- and 65-inch sizes, all with 3D and Smart TV features. Each one will also have an ARM dual-core microprocessor and the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Other expected features include built-in WiFi and a detachable camera for facial recognition, gesture control and Skype calling.

To support some of those goodies, the XT880 will come packing a remote with a built-in microphone.

“The XT880 series brings together all of the latest features available on high-end televisions today,” said JoAnne Foist, director of marketing at Hisense USA. “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.”

There’s no word on when the XT880 will start selling — and more importantly, for how much. However, the company plans to show off the entire line in January at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
