Blaupunkt has forayed into the Indian television industry with its newly launched series of LED TVs. The company has launched a total of eight televisions across its Family, Smart Sound, and the 4K UHD Series in India. It should be noted that all of the TVs were initially unveiled at the IFA Berlin 2018 event in August. The company aims to cater buyers looking for a TV across various price segments as its devices start at Rs 12,999 and go up to Rs 47,999. The eight models will go up for sale via Flipkart on September 18.
On the launch of these much-awaited LED TVs, Andrzej Cebart, Managing Director, Blaupunkt, said, “Blaupunkt’s all three LED series are manufactured with German technology, both in the electronics and software domain. As we stand for Quality, no product would reach an Indian customer unless it has the BLUE DOT, the mark of Quality Assurance. On the basis of our product testing and customizations, we believe we are ready to disrupt the Indian market with Blaupunkt LED Televisions at affordable prices. I can surely say that we are luxury, but affordable luxury. We are excited about our launch in India with our LED Televisions range of products that are in par with what we market in Europe. In fact, I am sure you will soon be a Blaupunkt customer”
Starting off with the company’s flagship lineup, there are three models in the 4K UHD Series. There’s a 43-inch 4K UHD model, a 49-inch version and the largest one is the 55-inch model.
