Hisense unveils first locally-made 100-inch TV in South Africa

Hisense’s new 100-inch U7K ULED Mini-LED TV is being produced at its Atlantis Factory just north of Cape Town — a first for the company and a big vote of confidence for the country’s manufacturing sector.

It is the first 100-inch TV made at the Atlantis facility and the first 100-inch TV Hisense sold in South Africa.

Hisense unveiled the new TV during a recent event at its factory in Atlantis, which was attended by trade and industry minister Ebrahim Patel.

Patel celebrated the launch, saying, “Today we announced a big-screen TV, 100-inches, that is produced for the first time here in Atlantis and will be sold across the world.”

“The next time the Springboks win the Rugby World Cup, the nation can watch the match and the celebration on big-screen TVs made in South Africa.”

This milestone follows several recent achievements by Hisense, including being recognised as the Best TV Brand in 2024 by MyBroadband and as the second-largest TV producer in the world in 2023.

100-inch U7K ULED Mini-LED TV

The Hisense 100U7K is headlined by four major technologies — Mini-LED, Quantum Dot Colour, Hisense’s Hi-View Engine, and Game Mode Pro.

Mini-LED provides the 100U7K with excellent brightness and contrast, generating deep blacks thanks to its backlighting control.

Quantum Dot Colour ensures this imagery offers accurate colour reproduction, while the Hi-View Engine keeps everything running smoothly on its 144Hz panel.

Game Mode Pro then equips the 144Hz panel with Variable Refresh Rates (VRR), Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), AMD FreeSync Premium, and HDMI 2.1 for gamers.

Hisense also packed the 100U7K with an extensive range of HDR technologies, including Dolby Vision IQ and HDR10+ Adaptive.

Hisense confirmed that the 100-inch U7K TV would launch in South Africa at the beginning of June 2024 at a recommended retail price of R79,999.

It is listed on Hirsh’s as ‘coming soon.’
