Amazon has just put the 50-inch Hisense 4K QLED Fire TV Smart TV on sale for $339.99 for Prime Day. That’s 36% off the list price of $529.99 and it’s the new lowest price that this TV has ever been. This TV dropped to $399.99 when early Prime Day deals first kicked off a few weeks ago, but now it is at its full Prime Day discount. This is the newest Fire TV Smart TV on the market and it was released just over a month ago. It’s very likely the Fire TV Smart TV with the best display thanks to a laundry list of features like a Quantum Dot panel, 600 nits of peak brightness, full array local dimming with 32 zones, a variable refresh rate, 4K resolution, and support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10+. Under the hood is the standard MediaTek MT9020 (MTK T31) quad-core 1.5 GHz CPU and Mali-G52 MP1 504 MHz GPU found in nearly every Fire TV Smart TV, along with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. Connectivity includes four HDMI ports (at least one is HDMI 2.1), of which one is ARC capable, composite in, optical audio out, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Ethernet, 802.11ac WiFi 5, Bluetooth, Apple AirPlay, Miracast, and a USB port. While this TV falls in the middle of the pack as far as screen size, it makes up for it with what I can only assume is the best-looking Fire TV Smart TV screen on the market.

Are you absolutely sure this TV has 4 x 2.1 HDMI, that seems HIGHLY unlikely from Hisense in this price range.
I could have sworn that I read somewhere that all 4 ports were HDMI 2.1 but now I can’t find it. (I’ll keep searching.) I’ve updated the post since all I can guarantee is that at least one port is HDMI 2.1. Thanks for pointing that out.
I’m now convinced that it used to say “4 HDMI 2.1 ports” somewhere and that it has since been edited out. The Amazon product page now says “The TV’s HDMI 2.1(eARC) port …” so since that now says a singular “port” then I’m assuming it is just one HDMI 2.1 port.
Notably, when the product page first went live, it used to say both 32 zones and 48 zones of local dimming on the same page. I told Amazon about it and they fixed it and confirmed it was 32 zones, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the HDMI 2.1 info was wrong as well at launch.
There are so many variations of this model it makes getting accurate specs hard. For this price people are lucky to get 1 HDMI 2.1 port haha.
