Prism+ pushes out new 4k TV range with Android OS

Prism+ pushes out new 4k TV range with Android OS

The new Q series is Singapore's first Android OS based locally produced smart TV.

A year after having launched their range of 4k Smart TVs, Prism+ has announced the launch of their new Prism+ Q series range of 4k Android OS-based Smart TVs.

While the original E series launched last year had four models ranging from 32 inches to 65 inches in size, the Q series has three models from 55 inches up to 75 inches in size. And while technically "smart" they lacked the capabilities offered by the inclusion of Android OS. 

 

Going smart all the way

Prism+ Managing Director Jon Ng briefing the media on the Dolby and DTS sound on the new TVs.

The new Q Series Android TVs, operate on the official Android TV 9.0 Operating System, comes with Google PlayStore giving access to more than 5,000 compatible and popular apps like Netflix YouTube, Amazon Prime, Spotify, Twitch, Plex, HBO Go, Airscreen, and CNN. The Q Series Android TVs however, already come preloaded with Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime, and are officially certified to stream 4K content.

The overall aesthetic is similar to Prism+'s old E series TVs.

There is also a built-in Chromecast which lets consumers seamlessly cast content from smartphones and laptops onto the TV. To do so, the smartphone or laptop must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the Android TV. Once connected, the user can open the app or browser with their preferred content and select the Cast function and then the name of the Android TV. When the Cast function changes colour, the content has been successfully cast onto the Android TV.

The Q Series will come in three sizes: 55, 65, and 75 inches.

With built-in Google Assistant, consumers can simply use their voice to make the TV perform certain functions such as changing channels and at the same time, control home devices such as dimming the lights in the living room.

Marcus Wee, Director of Prism+ said that despite being only a year on, TV sales accounted for 50% of the portfolio of the company. This growth was what helped them enter into the license agreement with Google to install Android OS on their TVs.
