Hisense A9H Smart TV presented with a 120 Hz OLED display, HDMI 2.1, HDMI VRR and 80 W speakers
Hisense has presented the A9H Smart TV, a successor to the A9G that is also known as the 65A9HTUK. While Hisense states that a 55-inch model should be orderable at some stage, it has only listed the 65-inch version at the time of writing. Available in the UK, the Hisense A9H has a 65-inch panel with a 16:9 aspect ratio, a 4K native resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate.
Also, the large display relies on OLED technology, ensuring excellent colour accuracy and a theoretically infinite contrast ratio. Incidentally, the inclusion of Dolby Vision IQ support allows the TV to peak at 1,000 nits when viewing HDR content. Moreover, the 10-bit colour panel supports HDR10+ and has an 80 W speaker set up. Specifically, Hisense has included five 10 W midrange drivers, plus twin 5 W tweeters and a single 20 W subwoofer.
For reference, the TV uses its large panel to improve audio fidelity, akin to Sony's 'Acoustic Surface' technology. Instead, Hisense calls its equivalent 'Sonic Screen', even if they are functionality comparable. Separately, Hisense pre-loads the A9H with Vidaa U6.0, its proprietary operating system. In comparison, Hisense TVs tend to come with Google TV in the US. However, Vidaa U6.0 supports Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, plus Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube and other streaming services.
Furthermore, Hisense has equipped the TV with HDMI 2.0 and HDMI 2.1 ports, along with Ethernet and USB Type-A connections. Thankfully, the inclusion of HDMI 2.1 allows the A9H to offer HDMI variable refresh rate (VRR), making it compatible with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S|X consoles. The Hisense A9H (65A9HTUK) is available in the UK for £2,299; the company has not confirmed pricing and availability in other markets yet.
