Thomson is expected to launch a 75-inch variant of its Android TV lineup in India. While the details of the TV such as its specifications are not known, what is known is that it will run on the Android TV platform. Thomson recently launched its lineup of Android TVs in India featuring TVs ranging from 43-inch to 65-inch with prices starting at Rs 24,999. All the TVs bring with them a 4K resolution along with HDR support including Dolby Vision. You can read more about the new TV lineup here.
Considering we have an existing lineup of Android TV’s from Thomson, we don't expect this TV to change anything in terms of features or specifications under the hood. This is just expected to be a larger screen size option. While players like Kodak, Xiaomi and more offer 65-inch as the largest screen size in India, TCL offers a larger screen size (75-inch) in its P715 4K HDR TV lineup.
Coming back to the upcoming Thomson 75-inch TV, the 55 and 65-inch TVs that have launched have a peak brightness of 550 nits and we think the same will translate to the 75-inch variant. The TV will run on the Android TV platform giving users access to apps from the Play Store including streaming services like Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ Hotstar and more. We can expect the TV to come with 3 HDMI and 2 USB ports for your connectivity needs. Other features like 2.4GHz WiFi only along with a 60Hz refresh rate will also be there on this TV as they are present in the 65-inch variant. The TV will also support Chromecast built-in and come with a voice-enabled remote control.
The 65-inch Thomson Android TV is priced at Rs 52,999 while the 55-inch variant is priced at Rs 32,999. The larger the screen size, the more expensive the panel will be. This is why we think the Thomson 75-inch TV could be priced in the ballpark of Rs 80,000 or Rs 85,000. To put things into perspective, the 75-inch variant of the TCL P715 is priced at Rs 99,990 while the 65-inch is priced at Rs 61,990 and the 55-inch at Rs 39,990. Keeping the competition and past price in mind, we have come to the consensus that the 75-inch Thomson TV will be around the 85K mark.
