Hisense says its new 110UX TV will do something no other consumer display has ever done: deliver 10,000 nits of peak brightness. The 110UX, which has a 110-inch diagonal screen size and apparently has its own console-style stand and audio system, will get its official debut at the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January.
In typical fashion for a CES sneak peek, Hisense hasn’t released any pricing or availability information for the scorchingly bright 110UX. The new model is based on Hisense’s ULED X technology platform which it first announced in 2023 with the debut of the Hisense UX.
The 110UX incorporates over 40,000 backlight zones across its mammoth 110-inch screen, which minimizes backlight leakage and measurably elevates contrast, according to Hisense. That backlight, which is powered by 24V high-output mini-LEDs, is responsible for the TV’s extraordinary 10,00o-nit maximum brightness. To put that number in perspective, most high-end TVs only hit about 2,000 nits peak brightness, and Hisense’s own UX is the current max brightness record holder at 4,000 nits.
It’s more than just a very bright TV. Hisense tells us that the 110UX will also achieve high levels of color volume, with a claimed 95% of the BT.2020 color palette. Again, for perspective, the LG G3 OLED TV only hits about 75% of the BT.2020 specification. The company credits the introduction of new panel materials and more advanced quantum dot technology for this achievement.
Hisense also points to the 110UX’s ultra-low anti-glare films and internal panel structure, which achieves a claimed 1.28% reflectance rate, reducing disruptions from ambient lighting. It also sports Hisense’s STW2.0 wide-angle film technology, designed to minimize backlight leakage, halos, and color shift issues, for a more consistent viewing experience from all angles.
Strangely, Hisense made no mention of the 110UX’s native resolution in its press release. It seems probable that it’s a 4K TV given that the company didn’t announce any new 8K TVs in 2023 and even its U8K model is a 4K TV, despite the “8K” in its name.
It’s not a stretch to assume that the 110UX will be widely compatible with HDR formats like Dolby Vision, and judging from the bottom console we can see in the accompanying press photo, the sound system seems likely to pack a punch as well. But for those details and more, we’ll have to wait for CES 2024 to officially kick-off.

Samsung’s CES 2023 TVs get thinner, brighter, healthier, and better for gaming
On display at CES 2023, Samsung’s 2023 TV lineup is getting a wide variety of upgrades, including thinner designs, better sound systems, 4K cloud-based gaming, and some interesting health applications that the company is borrowing from its mobile division. Here’s everything you need to know.
MicroLED gets smaller, more affordable
Samsung was an early promoter of microLED display tech, which uses tiny LED lights as individual pixels instead of using them as the backlight on an LCD-based TV (LED TV, mini-LED TV). Unfortunately, microLED TVs have tended to be huge (starting at 110 inches), expensive, and somewhat limited in resolution at smaller sizes.
The company’s new Micro LED CX, at 76 inches, is its smallest yet, and Samsung promises it will also be the most affordable microLED TV ever released.
Go ahead and spend the extra $20 on the good Apple TV 4K
Apple has announced two new versions of the Apple TV 4K. Both are good for all kinds of reasons. Better internals. New features. And prices that are much more likely to be competitive, even if they’re still a good bit north of what folks are spending on the likes of Roku and Amazon Fire TV devices.
But two new Apple TV 4K boxes — and the death of the lower-resolution Apple TV HD — means you’ve got a decision to make. Which Apple TV 4K is right for you?
Hisense debuts its first 8K Roku TV, the 75-inch U800GR
We’re still several weeks away from CES 2022, but don’t tell Hisense that. The company has decided it doesn’t need a big, splashy Las Vegas show to show off its big, splashy new Roku TV, which also happens to be its first Roku TV to offer 8K resolution: The Hisense U800GR, which is available December 8 from Best Buy and Amazon for $2,700.
The U800GR packs Hisense’s ULED display technology, which in this case means a quantum dot LED panel with a native 120Hz refresh rate and up to 1,000 nits of brightness. Gamers will appreciate the extra smoothness this brings to their fast-action games, as well as the TV’s support of auto low-latency mode (ALLM) and variable refresh rate (VRR). You get Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support, in addition to HDR10 and HLG. Hisense says there are 180 local dimming zones for better contrast and black levels.
