Skyworth has unveiled its new 86-inch SUC9500 Android TV in South Africa that the company says is the biggest Android TV boundless screen set that South Africa has ever seen.

The 86-inch Skyworth SUC9500 has a recommended retail price of R34 999 and has hands-free voice control. 

It comes with unlimited Google Play Store access, the latest Android 10 operating system, super hardware configuration, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, Two-Way Bluetooth Transmission and Cast Play, with picture quality provided by a AIPQ engine.

The Skyworth 86-inch SUC9500 has 2GB RAM and 32GB flash memory, a quad-core processor, 3 HDMI ports, a LAN port, a DVB-T2 receiver and 2 USB ports.

"Over the last year and a half it’s become clear that home is not only where the heart is but where the entertainment is," says Jaco Joubert, Skyworth brand manager.

"We’re not just living at home, we’re working from home, exercising at home and connecting to the outside world from our homes. It was the logical next step for the brand to launch a product that could rival any entertainment centre out there, a product to make you feel as if you’re part of something bigger and something ground-breaking."

Bridget Meyer, Skyworth senior marketing manager, says "Our new 86-inch Skyworth SUC9500 comes with a narrow body, a metal stand, and a minimal surrounding bezel, making it the biggest infinity-screen Android TV in South Africa".

"The latest Android 10 operating system comes with over a 1 000 content streaming providers like YouTube, Netflix, Showmax, DStv Now, Amazon Prime Video and more, as well as over 5 000 Android TV apps available on the Google Play store."

Bridget Meyer says that the hands-free voice control allows a customer to communicate with the TV even when it's on standby mode from up to 5 metres away
