Toshiba on Monday became one of the few television manufacturers to launch Android TVs in the Indian market. The company has announced the launch of its new L5400 and L9450-series of LED TVs in the country, which are powered by Android 4.4 KitKat (not the new Android TV platform).
“The Android interface has opened a world of possibilities for consumers. From connecting India, to offering a wide variety of performance tools and apps, to an array of entertainment option, Android has demonstrated its ambidextrous capabilities. We are trying to bring the same limitless experience by breaking boundaries on screen sizes. Our latest range offers the customers a choice to enjoy latest Android applications on a larger screen and in a higher image quality, than that of smartphones and tablets,” said Sanjay Warke, Country Head, Toshiba India – DS Division.
Talking about the Toshiba’s L9450-series first, this LED TV line-up features 4K (UHD, 3840x2160p) display panel and comes with 4K RESOLUTION+ up-conversion technology, which up-scales the full HD or lower resolution content to 4K.
