Thomson 55UH7500 4K Ultra HD QLED TV: Android TV 11, HDR 10, HDR Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos ...

Thomson yesterday presented the Thomson UH7500 4K Ultra HD TVQLED, one of the main strengths of which is always offering excellent value for money. With this Quantum Dots and Android 10 model, Thomson is asserting its desire to support consumers in their desire, since the health crisis, to renew their television set with a more efficient model equipped with a state-of-the-art Smart TV function.

At the time of this writing, the Thomson 55UH7500 (55 '', 140 cm) television is a unique model. Undoubtedly the way for the brand to test a move upmarket, with in particular the adoption of QLED technology for a more accurate color rendering associated with a coverage of the DCI-P3 gamut announced at 97%. And maybe to come up with other screen sizes later…

Thomson UH7500, the main specifications

On the menu of the Thomson 55UH7500, Ultra HD 4K specimen, a 50 Hz 10-bit LCD panel (10-bit FRC Dithering to be precise, or 10 bits simulated from an 8-bit panel) and a Direct LED Global backlighting system Dimming combined with Micro Dimming software processing and a PPI2600 fluidity index. On the other hand, the mark does not give any precision on the luminous peak. We can bet that the latter must be less than 400/450 nits. We find the IPQ 2.0 Engine video processing coming directly from TCL TVs (as a reminder, Thomson televisions are manufactured and distributed by TCL), a guarantee of quality. HDR10, HDR10 +, HDR Dolby Vision and HDR HLG compatibilities are required, plus Android Smart TV 11.0 with integrated Google Assistant. The latter provides many services and authorizes the control of many other devices connected via various IoT (Internet of Things or Internet of Things) protocols, all by voice via Google Assistant. Namely, Works with Alexa certification is required (need for an Amazon Echo-type speaker) and the update to Google TV is scheduled for 2022.
