Hisense Mural TV R8K new slim model with matte screen launches
The Hisense Mural TV R8K has been launched in China. The new model is somewhat similar to the Samsung The Frame TV, designed to mimic a piece of art when not in use. A matte display helps to add to this illusion and minimizes reflections or glare when watching content.
The Mural TV R8K has a direct LED backlight with a peak brightness of 500 nits. The 4K model with a 120Hz refresh rate covers 93% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, and the U+ Super Image Quality Engine Pro enhances the image. The model has ten built-in speakers with a combined output of 72W, Ultra-wide Sound Field Sound Pro technology, and support for Dolby Atmos. Other features include dual-band Wi-Fi and a range of ports like HDMI 2.1, HDMI 2.0, USB 3.0, and USB 2.0.
The TV has an over 97% screen-to-body ratio and is only 37.4 mm (~1.47-in) thick, with Hisense claiming you can mount the TV to your wall with a gap as small as 3 mm (~0.12-in). Plus, the model won a Gold Award at the CMF Design Awards 2023. The Hisense Mural TV R8K 65-in and 75-in models retail in China for 9,999 yuan (~US$1,409) and 12,999 yuan (~US$1,831), respectively. The company has yet to announce plans to roll out the new model to other markets.
