So you thought, only mobile phones are being sold on exclusive e-commerce sites? Well, Vu Technologies has announced the launch of its 4K UltraHD TVs which will be sold exclusively on Snapdeal. The TVs will come in 50-inch and 55-inch sizes and will be priced at Rs 89,900 and Rs Rs 1,19,000 respectively.
Vu has decided to call out Samsung and Sony 4K TVs in terms of pricing claiming that Vu TVs come at almost half the price – Rs 89,900 for the 50-inch versus Samsung’s 48-inch 4K TV at Rs 1,59,556, and Rs 1,19,000 for the 55-inch model versus Sony’s equivalent model at a market price of Rs 2,18,000.
Vu says that its 4K TVs will comes with a quad-core graphics engine which will give an accelerated UltraHD experience allowing non 4K content, beamed by your set-top box, to scale up easily ensuring that you get detailed and sharper images. Of course, we will have to see it for ourselves to believe that.
