Hisense is once more committed to delivering exceptional quality mini LEDs to market in 2024 off the back of the previous year’s high, which saw it gaining on rival Samsung in market growth. At CES 2024, Hisense clearly pushed its potential to the next level with a multitude of ULED, QLED, and laser TV options that might give Samsung a run for its money again this year.
The U8K, one of the best budget TVs of 2023, stunned crowds across the world launching as the largest mini-LED in the industry at 100-inch — and this year is no different. The display firm is highlighting at the forefront of its 2024 TV lineup two powerful ULED X models, the 98UX QLED and 110UX QLED, which promise to be immediate rivals to OLEDs across the market.
Additionally, the firm’s ULED line will be enhanced to serve Hisense’s newfound mantra of “big screen, big value.” Such upgrades to the U8N include 3,000 nits of brightness, ATSC 3.0 functionality, several gaming improvements, and a wider range of sizes from 55-in to 85-in, with the U6N starting at $400.
Hisense is also touting the high-flying potential of its U76N QLED, which will be available at 100 inches. These will include several AI upgrades, like AI HDR Enhancement, noise reduction, detail enhancement, and local tone mapping.
Last, but certainly not least, Hisense has also announced a slew of Laser TV options. These serve as the company’s lineup of UST projectors with loads of use case variety, like an Ultra Black Laser TV for up to 94% light reduction, or a rollable screen laser TV that offers users easy access without getting in the way of wall space. Included in the mix is an upgraded C1 projector with an auto-image integration feature.
Hisense 2024 TVs: ULED X lineup
Hisense is considering both of its new UX series of ULEDs revolutionary and it's by design. At 110-in, the aptly-named 110UX is quite a stunner and hard to miss on the show floor of CES 2024. It takes up after the company's UK Mini-LED TV from last year, sporting similar gains in brightness and contrast levels at a phenomenal rate.
Of most importance is the 110UX ULED's 40,000 backlight zones, a first for the industry, which allows it up to 10,000 nits of brightness and unparalleled dynamic range. It also covers 95% of the BT.2020 color palette and is equipped with Hisense's latest Hi-View Engine X chip, an AI processor that will ensure the ULED has dynamically adjusted contrast and depth ratios.
A 4.2.2 channel speaker and Dolby Atmos FlexConnect support are avid inclusions, rounding out the 110UX ULED's specs as a masterclass entertainment system.
At CES 2024, the Hisense 110UX Mini-LED TV broke every possible test metric and is aptly hailed as among the best TVs at the show. Thus far, it's already touting the best brightness on the block, and its Hi-View Engine X Processor is an utter game changer. Still, with only two HDMI 2.1 ports (a commonality across most 2024 TVs) in tandem with noticeable screen glare, the Hisense 110UX has some room for improvement.
At 98-in, the 98UX ULED is set to be a prime contender this year against rival OLEDs in the market. It's set to feature 5,000 nits of peak brightness (double against last year's model), an astounding 10,000 local dimming zones, a 144Hz refresh rate, and a 4.2.2 channel speaker for incredible audio support.
Hisense is considering its ULED X line of TVs as being potential OLED killers through not only impressive specs and picture fidelity, but also value. As already mentioned above, the 10UX certainly is a valid contender this year with incredible performance, and the 98UX is not too far behind, but we won't know how truly powerful these displays are until they're in our hands for testing.
Even with all of these improvements, and flying in the face of Hisense's "OLED killer" moniker, rivals out of Samsung and LG, namely the latter's M4 OLED, could prove to be ample competition in the 2024 TV market.
Hisense 2024 TVs: ULED lineup
U6N, U7N, U8N series
Hisense's newest Mini-LED TVs will be kitted out with some exciting upgrades for 2024, including ATSC 3.0, WiFi 6e, 144Hz refresh rate, and 3,000 nits of peak brightness. Several enhancements will also make these Hisense ULEDs a gamer's paradise, like both G-Sync and FreeSync compatibility, ALLM, and Game Mode Pro.
Only the U7 and U8 series will be leveraging the company's Hi-View Engine Pro chipset, which is slated to gift these models several AI advancements that include Dynamic Tone Mapping, Face Detection, as well as AI Detail and HDR enhancements.
While we don't have any official hands on yet with the 2024 U8, given it's smashing potential from last year, with our very own Nick Pino calling the U8K Mini-LED TV "one of the most colorful TVs we've tested," the newer iteration shouldn't be too far behind. At under $1,000, the newest U8 might spell an instant victory for Hisense, affording it even more leeway in the market beyond just budget TV sales.
The 2024 ULED TV lineup out of Hisense will range from 55" to 85".
Hisense 2024 TVs: U76N ULED
The new U76N ULED acts as a pseudo cousin to last year's U8K Mini-LED TV, which did gangbusters and remains heralded as one of the most colorful TVs tested by Tom's Guide. This newer iteration is no different, acting as the poster child for Hisense's mantra of "Big Screen, Big Features."
Thus, the U76N sports a magnificent 100-inch display with a variety of awesome upgrades, like 144Hz refresh rate, Wi-Fi 6e, and IMAX Enhanced, all built on the Google TV backbone. Although pricing remains to be seen, Hisense does relay that its U76N ULED will hit retailers later this month.
Hisense 2024 TVs: Laser TV lineup
At CES 2024, Hisense will also be showcasing a wide range of varied laser TV offerings, which is simply the company's projector lineup. These include an 8K Sonic Laser TV that leverages 33 million pixels for 8K picture quality on a sound emitting screen, an Ultra Black Laser TV Screen for the highest contrast levels at 94% light rejection, an Ultra Slim Laser TV with an 88-in ALR screen as wide as a 14-in laptop, and a Rollable Screen Laser TV allowing for one-touch lifting.
A Dynamic Zone Laser TV will also be at the show, which is a UST projector that uses dynamic light steering for reduced blacks in dark scenes by as much as 50% and increased brightness by 500%. The Hisense C1 Pro projector will also be in attendance, sporting an auto-image integration feature.

I'm looking forward to understanding what improvements these U#N TV's have over last years U#K. Nothing apparent yet.Reply
