Hisense South Africa has introduced an array of smart electronics and appliances including their pin-sharp 65-inch and 75-inch 4K ULED TV’s to the market. At an event held at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC), the brand showcased some very impressive TV’s, Mobile Phones, Refrigerators and other Kitchen Appliances.
At the brand’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Atlantis, Cape Town, Hisense SA is able to produce high-quality electronics, which are locally produced and meet high-quality standards.
4K ULED TV’s
With the breakthrough ULED technology introduced a year ago, Hisense South Africa’s Television Product Manager, Serena Lee, notes that when designing the two new ULED offerings, the company listened to feedback from consumers to improve the viewing experience. “New market trends constantly emerge in a rapidly changing television industry. With our new additions to the ULED range, both colour and contrast have been enhanced with the introduction of HDR Supreme for unparalleled brightness and deeper colours,” explains Lee. “Both the 75N9700 and 65N8700 will provide Hisense consumers with an amazing 4K viewing experience,” she concludes.

Built-In Ovens & Hobbs
Styled to fit perfectly in the most modern kitchen, the Hisense built-in electric oven (HBO60201) is as serious about cooking as gastronomes are about indulging in an exquisite meal. With a full touch control LED display and aluminium stylings, the oven certainly looks the part, while the innovation inside this 70-litre twin oven does not disappoint. It boasts Hisense’s innovative Dual Cook System which allows busy chefs to prepare two dishes in the oven at the same time and at different temperatures

Not to be outdone by the new kitchen range, Hisense’s refrigerators remain one of the most popular choices at retailers, being manufactured locally at the company’s factory in the Atlantis industrial region. The latest flagship unit is the H701FS-ID, a French-Door fridge that big entertainers or those with large families will immediately fall in love with. The massive 516-litre interior space is highly customisable for different sized food, and a crushed or blocked ice maker is on standby, ready for those hot summer days.A fridge not to be passed by
