The TV market in America is a fairly saturated market with brands like LG, Samsung, Sony, HiSense, TCL, Sharp, Spectre, and so many more. Now, we’re not as familiar with the Indian market but apparently Motorola thinks it can make a play there by jumping into the TV market.
Motorola isn’t the first smartphone maker to decide that the TV market in India is ripe for the picking. OnePlus is also prepared to launch a new TV for the Indian market so it will be interesting to see how these two do against each other and in the market as a whole.
Motorola is partnering with Flipkart on this endeavor and they are simply calling it MotorolaTV. The new TVs will have sizes from 32″ up to 65″ and all will be using IPS technology for their displays. But, you’ll also get Dolby Vision, HDR 10 and Android TV built-in. The version of Android TV shipping with these will be Android 9 and the TV will even come with an Android TV game controller.
As expected, the lower-priced TV’s will sport a 1080p resolution while the higher-priced TV’s will sport 4K resolution. The company says these panels will have a high peak brightness to accommodate Bollywood movies and have very good viewing angles up to 178-degrees. They will have Mali 450 GPU’s built-in along with 16GB of onboard storage and 2.25GB of RAM.
The Motorola TV’s will also have a 30W soundbar already built-in and it has Dolby Audio and DTS Tru Sound. Motorola made no mention of other markets but I wouldn’t expect to see this come to the United States. While it certainly is possible, I’m not sure they have the muscle to take on the already established brands here. Pricing starts at RS 13,999 and tops out at RS 64,999.
