Amazon will start selling its own TVs called Fire TV Omni and Fire TV 4-Series this coming October 27 in the US. A range of affordable mid-range 4K TVs with integrated Fire OS system and Alexa functions.
The Fire TV Omni range is the one with better features and specifications that will give us better image quality, on the other hand the Fire TV 4-Series range is oriented to the entry range with competitive prices. As expected, this new Fire TV platform provides access to Amazon Prime, Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, Netflix and many other streaming services in 4K quality and high definition sound.
The Fire TV Omni Smart TV range has support for 4K resolution, which will be available in 43-inch, 50-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch and 75-inch, will feature 4K resolution. There is support in all versions for HDR10 and HLG, but Dolby Vision will be available only from 65 inches and above. The backlighting system is Edge LED so the price is quite tight. We have some HDMI 2.1 features like eARC, but according to their specs the bandwidth is only HDMI 2.0 so we are left with 4K@60fps.
The Fire TV 4-Series range are more basic 4K TVs that will be available only in 43, 50 and 55 inches. Picture quality and backlight power are cut back to adjust prices.
Thanks to the remote with built-in microphone users will be able to use Alexa voice commands to find TV shows and movies. It will also be possible to control channels and inputs, as well as video playback, subtitles, TV brightness, TV volume or soundbar and other synchronized devices in our home such as compatible Amazon Echo speakers.
