Realme has announced a new Android smart TV with a unique display technology it called Spectral Power Distribution. The Realme SLED 4K 55-inch Android TV uses RGB light in the initial stage of picture formation, which the company claims offers excellent color gamut coverage and low blue light emissions. Also being announced is a 100 W 2.1-channel Soundbar with Bluetooth support.

Realme has announced a host of new devices today, but one product that piqued a lot of curiosity was the Realme Smart TV SLED 4K 55-inch. The Realme SLED TV boasts what the company calls as Spectral Power Distribution (SPD), which promises ultra-wide color gamut and low blue light emissions.

Realme said that SLED basically involves using an RGB backlight in the initial stage instead of the typical white and blue backlight used in conventional LCD and QLED panels, respectively. Accordingly, the company claims that the SLED TV can cover up to 108% of the NTSC color gamut including support for HDR10+ and HLG standards. This, combined with special color tuning, should offer a markedly improved cinematic experience. The Realme SLED TV is also TÜV Rheinland-certified for low blue light emission.

The SLED TV itself is a 4K panel with extremely slim bezels (9.5 mm) on all four sides yielding a screen-to-body ratio of 94.6%. Powering the SLED TV is a MediaTek quad-core processor with a Cortex A53 1.53 GHz CPU and a Mali 470 MP3 GPU. However, the TV offers just 1.5 GB RAM and 16 GB of storage, which is bound to show its constraints while navigating the Android TV interface.

The audio subsystem supports Dolby Audio and is comprised of two sets of speakers located on either side at the bottom with each set including one full-range speaker and a tweeter. Realme says that the combined power of all four speakers is 24 W and are capable of reproducing sounds between 148 Hz to 20,000 Hz.

Users can also optionally purchase the Realme 100 W Soundbar, which boasts of four full-range speakers and two tweeters along with a dedicated subwoofer. Realme says that the subwoofer can hit frequencies between 50 Hz and 24 kHz while the other speakers offer a frequency range between 20 Hz and 23 kHz. The Realme Soundbar can also be paired with smartphones via Bluetooth.

Rest of the features are typical of what one would find in any typical Android TV including built-in Chromecast, Google Assistant, and dedicated buttons on the remote for Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube. Realme says that the SLED TV has been tested to withstand temperatures up to -20 °C, drops from up to 760 mm height, 5000 key strokes, and 5,500 on-off tests.

The Realme SLED 4K 55-inch will retail for ₹42,999 (US$587) and can be availed for ₹39,999 (US$546) for a limited time. Pre-orders will go live from midnight of October 16 (IST) on realme.com and Flipkart. The Realme 100 W Soundbar will be available for ₹6,999 (US$95) on the same date on realme.com, Flipkart, and Amazon.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
