The Daiwa 50-inch UHD Smart TV is now in India, and sources much of its smarts from LG’s smart TV technologies. The TV is the first of a series, according to the company, suggesting that it would aim to launch more TVs in future based on the LG webOS TV interface. Only one screen size of the TV has been launched, at 50 inches, making for an interesting offering that stands out in the range of budget 4K smart TVs that all run on Android TV – with a fairly standardised remote experience as well.
Daiwa 50-inch UHD Smart TV: price and availability
The Daiwa 50-inch UHD Smart TV can be purchased via the official Daiwa India website, and across all usual retailers. The TV bears model number Daiwa D50U1WOS, comes with a 50-inch screen size, and is priced at Rs 43,990.
The Daiwa 50-inch UHD Smart TV features 4K resolution, and runs on LG’s webOS TV software. The TV gets features such as MEMC for motion smoothing that can be key when watching live sports, ALLM for automatic low latency switching, and more. It features a “bezel-less display”, which essentially means thin bezels in a slim TV frame, for which Daiwa claims 96 percent screen to body ratio.
Daiwa also claims “deep learning AI” for upscaling low resolution files to “4K-quality visuals.” It also gets a specific cinema mode colour temperature calibration, which in most common parlance essentially means a picture mode with warmer visuals. The TV gets a 20W “surround sound box” speakers, which gets Dolby Audio certification too.
In terms of HDR performance, the TV supports both HDR10 and HLG (hybrid log gamma), which on paper should improve the visibility of dark areas on the TV frame. The Daiwa 50-inch UHD Smart TV is powered by an Arm CA55 quad core processor, paired with 1.5GB RAM and 8GB local storage. The webOS smart TV interface comes with support for most popular apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ Hotstar.
The TV also gets the LG Magic Remote experience, which features a scroll wheel for easy browsing and air gestures for quick selecting apps without having to navigate all the way with buttons.
