As part of growing its AIoT ecosystem, realme has also announced its very first Smart TV’s coming in at 32″ (HD+) and 43″ (FHD) variants. Both offer support for up to HDR10 and up to 400 nits of brightness.
Both feature a bezel-less LED display, Dolby Speakers, and a Chroma Boost feature, which was formerly found on smartphones. It enhances overall brightness, color, contrast, purity, and clarity.
Realme partnered with MediaTek in creating a customized quad-core chipset (MSD6683) that uses four Cortex A53 cores and a Mali-470 MP3 GPU along with a gigabyte of RAM, and 8GB of storage.
Realme Smart TV’s also come with Android TV 9 Pie and Google Assistant pre-installed. It means you get Netflix, YouTube, Prime, LiveTV, Disney+, and more. Just choose from over 5,000 apps in the Play Store.
The Google Assistant can be activated using a button on the remote control. You can ask questions, set reminders, and basically operate the TV without having to fiddle with the remote. Chromecast also comes built-in.
For connectivity, realme Smart TVs offer three HDMI ports, two USB ports, a dedicated LAN port, and a tuner port. These TV’s only support 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, as well as up to Bluetooth 5.
Realme CEO, Madhav Sheth mentioned that the TV’s are made in India to bring their prices down without sacrificing quality. A 100W soundbar was also announced, though it’s without any details for availability.
