The concept of smart TV is not new in the Indian television market, as anyone can now buy a smart TV for less than Rs 15,000 in India, but there are lesser options in the premium OLED segment. And now, according to a leak Skyworth is expected to launch a premium OLED smart Television in the Indian market.
The company Skyworth has a global presence and is based in Shenzen, China. The brand is known for premium televisions, setup-box, and other security accessories.
According to rumors, the company is all set to launch its flagship television in India. The company is expected to launch a smart TV with an OLED display offering a 65-inch screen size with 4K resolution. Though there are many smart televisions in India, there are only a selected number of televisions which offer OLED display technology, which should improve the overall picture quality of the television.
Going by the catalog on the Skyworth India website, the company is expected to launch the 65-inch OLED television with the model number 65S9300.
