The Chinese TV brand Konka North America, LLC, a subsidiary of the Konka Group, has announced just ahead of CES a smart TV lineup for Spring 2020 in North America that includes advanced OLED and QLED display technologies as well as LED models. The company is exhibiting at Central Hall.
First to reach market will be three new series of LED TVs and QLED TVs, followed closely behind by the company’s new flagship OLED TV, according to the announcement.
“We are very excited to launch three key display technologies, all offering unique consumer advantages and high value,” said Scott Ramirez, Konka North America LLC’s senior vice president, sales and marketing.
Further, with an eye to future introductions, Konka says it will also have on display 236-inch 8K and 118-inch 4K Micro LED Walls, the fruits of Konka’s recent joint venture in Micro LED R&D. Also on view will be Konka’s advanced 88-inch 8K OLED, 75-inch 8K LED TV and an 8K chassis with built-in 5G, demonstrating its investment in emerging platforms, says the company.
Konka’s new X11 Series OLED TV (65- and 55-inch UHD screen sizes) uses the company’s HiBright Ultra OLED panel with ColorWave Ultra Wide Color Gamut. Its ZeroBezel Ultra Design includes a built-in sound bar and dbx TV sound for enhanced audio performance.
The QLED Q7 Series features Quantum Dot Technology and Android TV
Includes Konka’s advanced XC3 UHD Engine and Android TV, and adds ColorWave Pro Wide Color Gamut with Quantum Dot Technology for 25 percent more color, says the company; it’s packaged in Konka’s enhanced ZeroBezel Pro Design, for an impressive aesthetic even when the screen is off. The Q7 Series will be available in 50-inch ($699.99), 55-inch ($799.99), 65-inch ($1,199.99) and 75-inch ($1,999.99) UHD screen sizes.
Konka’s opening price points for TVs start at $199.99, for its 32-inch H3 Series.
The company has 35 years of experience and more than 5,000 patents, as a manufacturer, developing, designing, and engineering products for more than 100 countries. Besides TVs, it produces audio products as well as products in the smart home, appliances and mobile categories. As part of its overall growth plan, it states in the announcement that it has significantly increased investment in several key technology areas including AIoT (combining AI with home control), 5G and semiconductor (including a new 8K SoC).
