AmazonBasics has launched its first televisions in India priced at Rs 29,999 onwards. The televisions come in two size variants of 50 and 55 inches — both of which have Ultra-HD (3840×2160-pixel) LED screens, with support for HDR up to the Dolby Vision format. There’s also support for Dolby Atmos, with a rated speaker output of 20W. The television range is powered by quad-core Amlogic processor, with three HDMI ports and two USB ports. The display has a peak refresh rate of 60Hz and a claimed viewing angle of up to 178-degrees. The televisions will go up against competition in the entry-level 4K smart TV segment, particularly from brands such as Xiaomi, TCL, Hisense, and Vu to name a few.
Both the Fire TV Edition televisions in the range are already available on Amazon India website, with two-day shipping available for Mumbai.
The AmazonBasics TVs are Fire TV Edition devices and run Amazon’s Fire TV OS. This is the same operating system for televisions as on the Fire TV Stick range of streaming devices, as well as on Fire TV Edition televisions from other brands such as Onida and Akai.
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.
