Although the recommended price for the Skyworth SUC9500 is R34,999, it is currently available from Takealot for R29,999.
The Skyworth SUC9500 features hands-free voice control, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, and the Android 10 operating system.
The TV has a slim metallic frame, two-way Bluetooth transmission, and built-in Chromecast and Castplay.
It comes with a quad-core processor, 2GB DDR RAM and 32GB of Flash storage, 3 x HDMI ports, a LAN port, 2 x USB ports, and a DVB-T2 receiver.
Pre-installed streaming platforms include Youtube, Netflix, Showmax, Amazon Prime Video, and DSTV Now.

The TV is wall-mountable, but at 43kg and dimensions of 1.9m x 1.2m, users should ensure they use a suitably strong bracket and installation.
