Kodak which was known for its camera has renowned its image as TV brand in India. Today, Super Plastronics Pvt. Ltd. (SPPL), a Kodak brand licensee has launched its new KODAK 55″ 4K UHD SMART TV in India. The KODAK 55UHDXSMART TV is exclusively available on Flipkart and sells at the price of INR 43,990.
All models of Kodak TVs including this 55UHDXSMART TV have inbuilt Samsung Panels and sound output of 10×2 Watts. Also, the TV features an intelligent Progressive Scan. The response time of TV is less than 8ms (as the company claimed) and provides YPrPb resolution.
If you talk about the connectivity the Kodad 4k UHD Tv offer all basic connectivity features:
- RJ45 Ethernet Port
- VGA Port
At right side vertically it has Headphone port, 2 USB 2.0, SD card, TV -in and HDMI 3 ports.
While at the bottom side all the main ports of the TV’s are placed such as RJ45 for Ethernet connectivity, AV-IN for Audio and Video, YPBPR, HDMI1, HDMI2, and COAX. The thing which we feel missed in this TV is the COM port which means, if you are planning to use it with your old PC which doesn’t support the HDMI then you might need a converter.
The Tv can be mounted on the wall as well placed on the stands come along with the TV. The stands are in the V- shape protrudes a bit outwards to give better stability. The color of stands is silver which looks good in contrast with the black color of the TV.
The KODAK 4K UHD Smart Tv can also install the APK files externally from the browser. Some popular apps come pre-installed such as YouTube, Facebook, NetFlix, Hotstar etc. Also the remote of the Tv is a combination of both standard and smart TV remote. It also has shortcuts for YouTube, NetFlix, and HotStar.
The 55 inch UHD SMART TV comes with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels with the display size of 139 cm. It runs on Dual-Core 1.4GHz processor and comes with 1GB memory and flash storage of up to 8GB.
Furthermore, this KODAK product comes with intelligent features like ANDROID version 4.4, Wi-Fi, LAN connectivity, and Screencast. The Android 4.4 version is pretty much old version but if you compare the features and price of this TV, the KitKat can be easily digested. We have got a chance to use this TV at the launch event and the experienced we got in around 1 hour was good. Although the content played on the TV was not 4K and we cannot judge it right now. But, as soon as we got it for review, we let you know, whether you should buy it or not. By the way, right now most of the SMART TVs in the market those features 55 inches display with 4K resolution are more than INR 50,000. If you look the price point and the features then the KODAK 55 inch UHD SMART TV seems to be a value for money product.
