Amazon has just launched its first lineup of ultra-HD TVs called the AmazonBasics Fire TV Edition in India. With prices starting from ₹29,999, the smart TVs are going to be available in two sizes – 50-inches and 55-inches.
Both the AmazonBasics Fire TV Edition smart TVs come with 4K HDR LED display panels and support Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos for HDR and audio. Both TVs are available on the Amazon India website.
As we mentioned above the new smart TVs are available in two sizes – 50-inches and 55-inches. Both come with Ultra-HD LED screens (3840 x 2160 pixels) with support for HDR up to the Dolby Vision format. There is also support for Dolby Atmos and 20W speaker output.
The TVs are powered by a quad-core Amlogic processor and come with three HDMI ports and two USB ports for connectivity. The display comes with a peak refresh rate of 60Hz and promises to view an angle of up to 178-degrees.
The AmazonBasics TVs are Fire TV Edition devices and run Amazon's Fire TV OS. This is the same operating system that runs the Fire TV Stick range of streaming devices, as well as on Fire TV Edition TVs from other brands like Onida and Akai.
You do not necessarily need to use a Fire TV Stick for this TV, you can also connect your own set-top box if you want.
Although Fire TV OS is visually geared to perform best with Amazon Prime Video, other services such as Netflix, Hotstar, and YouTube are available in the form of apps for the platform, just like with a Fire TV Stick.
