Televisions still hold a very crucial spot in the tech industry even after sheer dominance by smartphones. While there have been few new entrants in the TV industry, the pioneers such as Sony, Samsung or LG, for instance, still rules the high-end segment. When we move up the budget with the majority of focus on features a TV has to offer, these players tend to come in the picture automatically. While we had our thoughts for the under Rs 20,000 segment last week, here are top 5 TVs you can buy right now in India.
Samsung UAKS9000 series: Rs 2,35,305 - Rs 3,79,900
Ever since Samsung announced its KS9000 series in India last year, it has hardly faced any tough competition. Although LG’s EG960T and EG930T OLED Curved TV’s came close but are extremely difficult to find in the market so Samsung’s KS9000 series still stands tall in the premium TV category. Inside the box, we get the TV unit (of course), a remote controller with batteries, user manual, power cable, slim gender cable, Samsung smart control. The KS9000 TV series come in 55-inches and 65-inches display sizes which are beautifully curved and bezel-less and come with Ultra HD (4K) resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels). These displays come with Samsung’s Quantum Dot Display technology, HDR (High Dynamic Range) 1000, Micro Dimming, Auto Depth Enhancer, Auto Motion Plus etc. Being a Smart TV you get the ability to access apps, games, built-in browser and a tonne of other features such as Mobile to TV mirroring, Sound Mirroring, Analog Clean View, Advanced Sports Mode, Voice Recognition etc. It comes with a Quad-Core processor inside and also comes with built-in Wi-Fi with Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth, 4 HDMI ports, 3 USB ports, 1 Digital Audio Out port, 1 Component In (Y/Pb/Pr) port, 1 RF In (cable input) along with an HDMI Quick Switch. For audio, we get two speakers (one down-firing and one front-firing) along with a woofer which can throw out an audio output of 60 RMS with Dolby Digital Plus technology and DTS Codec. Samsung provides 1-year manufacturer warranty which does not cover accessories and transit damages. Currently, Samsung’s Curved KS9000 series is available for Rs 2,35,305 for 55-inch size and Rs 3,79,900 for 65-inch size.
LG OLED 55E6T - Rs 2,74,000
If we talk about premium TVs, LG is yet another reliable manufacturer in India. LG surprised everyone with its OLED Curved series last year but they are currently out of stock so the next in line is LG’s 55E6T. The OLED TV is currently available on both Amazon India and LG’s own store with the best buy price of Rs 2,74,000. The 55E6T comes with a 55-inch 4K Ultra HD LED display with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. The TV offers 8 aspect ratio modes including 16:9, 4:3, 14:9, Cinema Zoom etc. Unlike Samsung UAKS9000 series, LG E6T series is a 3D Smart TV so you can enjoy all the 3D content along with a bunch of Smart TV features.

On top of this, the entire sound mechanism is designed by Harman/Kardon and offers features like OLED Surround Sound, Cinema mode, Clear Voice, Cricket etc. Moving on to connectivity, we get 3 USB ports (1 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0), 4 HMDI ports, 1 RF In port, 1 LAN port and Bluetooth headset connection capability.
