      Looks like Hisense are becoming serious players in this sector of the market.

      I guess with the other manufacturers turning their attention to OLED (other than Samsung) it's opening a gap.

      It will be interesting to see what price range this comes in at - I read Hisense want to be in the Top 3 manufacturers in the USA in the next two years and with their aggressive pricing they're slowly getting there and upsetting the apple cart.

      The low margins over there are keeping people like Panasonic out of that market.

      I reckon it will debut at around £2200 ish, like the XT910, really depends on how many of the features are available at launch as well and what it can do.

      I think HLG and HDMI 2.1 will be important for this year.

      Would be good if Vizio came to Europe as they are very well priced considering the features in the USA.

      I bought the 65M7000 as a stop gap until OLED got its act together and I'm very happy with it, my only complaint was back light uniformity and bleeding but a full array backlight should fix that.

      Planning an upgrade again this year and it looks like there'll be a good selection to choose from.

      Vizio have just been taken over by a Chinese company so it will be interesting to see how they progress ...

      In terms of specs this TV it looks pretty much like their high-end 2016 model (minus the curve) that was never released outside Asia - this particular model was shown at IFA in September and reputed to be be releasing shortly after that show, so a June 2017 release is a big fail from Hisense.

      They failed to release a high-end TV in 2016 and it will be just shy of 2 years since they released the XT910 so they really need to start getting their products in the shops instead of just demoing them ...

      If the price is around £2000 it looks like a bargain buy if the black levels are decent.

      That price for a top end 70inch tv is staggeringly cheap. I think I will finally invest in a tv this year but 70inch is too big for me.

      I agree about HLG but why do you think HDMI 2.1 will be important this year?

      This model will definitely be released in the UK and from what I saw on he show floor it looked like a really good performer.

      I thought HDMI 2.1 was required for Dynamic HDR10? Which in theory should mitigate some of the blooming on HDR10 material on high nits tvs, plus if it can give an even better picture then its a good thing and its promote able.

      It is but based the discussions I've had here at CES, HDR 10 with dynamic metadata is still a while off.

      I wouldn't get your hopes up of it being that cheap, Hisense give an estimated price of around €4000, which works out around £3400 although it will probably retail cheaper when launched.

      The 65" currently can be had around £1050 so £3400 for a 70" seems a bit steep for a non-OLED

      Completely different model at that price. These are the higher end products from Hisense - series 8 & 9 with 1,000 Nits WCG HDR etc.

      The 9 series will likely be £2,500+ if they only release it in 70" in the UK.

      £3500 is crazy, people would just buy the top end 65" Samsung or Sony for that or a 65" OLED.

      Hisense will have sold a lot of tvs last year but peeps will still go for the branded expensive tvs over a not so known brand, however good it might be, so they will carry on undercutting by a good 30% i reckon.

      £2200, maybe £2500 but will quickly drop or have money off at AO. com

      I think it's a while off, Samsung appear to be trying to get support for their approach in an attempt to compete with Dolby Vision but it doesn't even have an official name yet.

      Awh come on, ULED? Why not ÜLED (as in über-LED) so it looks even more like OLED? :p

      Kidding aside, good to see that at least some manufacturers are still trying to make LCDs better and more affordable! :)

      I posted this on the other thread but may be better here.
      What's the difference betwen "full array backlight with around 150 local dimming zones" and the "edge LED backlighting with local dimming". I note the lower model has the latter. Is that likely to have much impact on the picture? The 70" would be too big for me but may be tempted by the 65".
