Hisense has presented its new smart TVs with mini-LED backlights for 2024. The U6NQ marks the entry level. The U7NQ and U8NQ are also part of the line-up. According to the manufacturer, the new televisions will be available in Germany from July 2024. All new model series use VIDAA U7.6 as the operating system.

But let’s start one at a time with the entry-level models in the U6NQ series. These come in diagonals of 50, 55, 65 and 75 inches. They have a 4K resolution, but unfortunately use 8-bit panels with FRC. The peak brightness is 600 nits. In addition to HLG and HDR10 , HDR10+ and Dolby Vision are also on board.

The Hisense U6NQ is only suitable for gamers to a limited extent. Although it supports ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), it works at 60 Hz. The built-in 20-watt speakers are also equipped for Dolby Atmos. You can also assume eARC . Quantum dots are supposed to improve color representation. According to Hisense, the price looks like this:

U6NQ: available from July/August

  • 75 inches: $1,499
  • 65 inches: $1,249
  • 55 inches: $949
  • 50 inches: $699

Hisense U7NQ: With 144 Hz and Quantum Dots

Basically, the Hisense U7NQ takes over all the advantages of the U6NQ, such as the quantum dots and the mini-LED backlight, but adds further strengths. These 4K LCDs can handle a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz, making them much more suitable for gaming. Dolby Vision is also upgraded to Dolby Vision IQ , meaning it can also take ambient light into account. It’s a shame that only two of the four HDMI ports offer full HDMI 2.1 – with ALLM, VRR and 4K at up to 144 Hz. One of these is also the eARC port. So if you want to connect multiple consoles or a gaming PC, you’ll probably need a switch.

In terms of price, the successor to the Hisense U7KQ is as follows:

  • 85 inches: $2,999 (available from September)
  • 75 inches: $1,899 (available from September)
  • 65 inches: $1,499 (available from September)
  • 55 inches: $1,099 (available from July / August)

U8NQ: Mini LED with up to 3,000 nits

Still missing is the Hisense U8NQ, which has all the advantages of the U6NQ and U7NQ, but increases the peak brightness to 3,000 nits. That’s why the manufacturer calls it Mini LED Pro. Unfortunately, once again, real 10-bit panels are not used, but 8-bit + FRC. In this case, 65- and 75-inch versions are being sold. There is another upgrade for the sound, as the integrated speakers now have 60 watts of power and offer 2.1.2 sound. It should be mentioned that in addition to Dolby Vision IQ, HDR10+ Adaptive is now also included.

The new Hisense U6NQ, U7NQ and U8NQ can also use the Filmmaker Mode for an image that is as true to the original as possible. The manufacturer has also given a little foretaste: The UX N Q with an impressive 10,000 nits as peak brightness is also being released in Germany. This LCD TV with mini LED will reach Germany in September 2024. As a little foretaste, Hisense will be launching an 85-inch version of the UXNQ series from July. Further details will follow soon.

U8NQ: available from June

  • 75 inches: $2,699
  • 65 inches: $1,999

110UXNQ: available from September

  • 110 inches: $19,999
