Realme entered the smart TV market almost a year ago with two models. Now the company has launched the Realme Smart TV 4K in 43-inch and 50-inch screen sizes. While last year’s 43-inch smart TV with 1080p resolution hit the market for 21,999 rupees, the newly launched 43-inch 4K model costs a little more at 27,999 rupees. However, the slightly increased cost can be justified by the better resolution panel, hands-free Google Assistant support, and much more.
The company appears to have focused on delivering a premium viewing experience with this smart TV. Even at its price, the new Realme Smart TV 4K is aggressively priced compared to the other 43-inch 4K smart TVs available on the market. The smart TV is also accompanied by a voice search remote control. Speaking of the remote control, it has a dedicated mute button and hotkeys for Netflix, Youtube, Amazon Prime Video and Google Assistant.
In addition, setting up the TV with two feet is a breeze. If you don’t have storage space on top of the TV, you can also choose to mount it on the wall. However, the wall mounting accessories must be purchased separately. The box also contains a warranty card, brief instructions and operating instructions. As soon as the device is switched on via the detachable power cord, you will be greeted by the normal Android TV setup screen.
Unlike other Chinese manufacturers, Realme has chosen to offer a stock-like Android TV user interface that is clear and easy to navigate. Compared to previous Realme TVs, the user interface of the Realme Smart TV 4K 2021 is exceptionally better. On the software side, this television has been fluid and lag-free so far. As for the display, the 43-inch 4K panel offers a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels and a viewing angle of 178 degrees.
It supports Dolby Vision and the in-house Chroma Boost and offers 1.07 billion colors with an ultra-wide color space of up to 83% NTSC and 90% DCI-P3. Under the hood, the TV is powered by a 64-bit MediaTek quad-core processor with Cortex-A53 cores with a clock rate of 1.5 GHz and a Mali G52 GPU. The chipset is accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. There is also a 4-speaker setup with a total output of 24W and supports Dolby Atmos, Dolby Audio, DTS HD.
One of the newly added features is the hands-free Google Assistant. Users can use the built-in quad microphones to talk to the TV’s Google Assistant without using the remote control. There’s also a dedicated switch on the back of the TV to turn off the built-in microphones. Speaking of I / O on this new Realme Smart TV 4K: It has 3 HDMI (1 with ARC), 2 USB, AV, tuner, antenna, LAN and audio-out connections.
On the connectivity front, it supports dual-band WiFi (2.4 GHz / 5 GHz) and Bluetooth 5.0. The Realme Smart TV 4K 2021 runs on Android 10 from the factory. In addition to the standard one-year warranty, Realme also offers an additional year free screen warranty. Priced at Rs 27,999, Realme’s 43-inch 4K Smart TV is great value for money. If you’re looking for a slightly bigger screen, the 50-inch Realme 4K smart TV costs 39,999 rupees. Aside from the larger screen size, the 50-inch model shares the same specifications with the 43-inch model. Both Realme Smart TV 4K flavors will be available from June 4th on Flipkart.com and Realme.com.
