What is the Hisense H10C?The 65-inch H10C Ultra HD TV sits atop Hisense’s ULED range for 2016, with a blistering spec sheet and an enticing feature-set. The 4K resolution is joined by HDR support and Quantum Dot to expand the number of available colours. The H10C will also provide Ultra HD streaming experiences, courtesy of Netflix and Amazon and it’s due for release in the second half of 2016.
This is a preview of the upcoming H10C model and will be replaced with the full in-depth review as soon as we have measured and reviewed the final retail sample. In the meantime here is a run-down of the features we can expect to see.
H10C Picture Quality FeaturesProtected by 17 patents, the Hisense ULED 3.0 technology aims to enhance colour, contrast, black level, brightness and smooth motion with a combination of processing and software. The technology is up to three times brighter than OLED with, Hisense claim, better dynamic range and perception of black and white. The latest iteration of ULED, presented in a technology demonstration at CES 2016, will be even brighter and more colourful with a colour gamut of 91.2 percent of Rec.2020 and 99.98 percent of the DCI-P3 colour spaces and 1000nit peak brightness, displayed through a curved screen by a panel with 240 local dimming zones. Naturally, the Hisense H10C is HDR capable with support for Dolby Vision also being considered.
Smart TV & Other SpecsWe don’t know much about what will be on offer to the UK market, in terms of the Smart TV platform, but judging by the 2015 Hisense TVs, you will at least get Ultra HD Netflix and Amazon 4K to follow. There is also BBC iPlayer and 4K YouTube with support for the VP9 codec support. The 2015 TVs had a built-in 3rd party app store, too, which we’d expect to see in the new-gen TVs. The H10C features a built-in soundbar, built-in dual-band WiFi (802.11ac), a web browser and a separate box for the connections. The H10 uses a slimmer design and is also at a much slighter angle on its stand than the XT910.
