It’s CES time, folks, and you know what that means? A bunch of announcements unveiling TVs that’ll be gracing our shores over the next 12 months. One company we’ve been watching closely is Hisense, and although they’re focusing heavily on their new ULED X 75- and 85-inch Mini-LED TV, they’ve also dumped a slew of other televisions for CES 2023.
While Mini-LED X technology puts Hisense’s new flagship model on a bit of a pedestal, the wider Hisense ULED range for 2023 is still pretty impressive.
Gizmodo Australia was lucky enough to visit Hisense’s CES 2023 keynote as a guest of the company, so from ULED X to 4K, here’s what was announced.
