Preorders for Amazon’s smart TVs with Alexa voice control are now open

Amazon has announced the availability of its first line of Amazon-built smart TVs. The company’s Fire TV operating system (OS) is incorporated into all of the new 4K monitors.

The 4-Series is the most basic model in the Fire TV portfolio, while the Omni Series is the most advanced. Amazon’s Fire TV system had previously been available in a range of smart TV models from companies such as Insignia and Toshiba, but this is the first time the business has developed its own televisions.

We’ve broken down the Fire TV 4-Series and Omni Series in detail below, including pricing, sizes, features, and ordering information.

Amazon’s Omni Series Fire TVs will come in sizes ranging from 43 to 75 inches, with prices ranging from $410 to $1,100. The TVs are available for preorder today, with delivery scheduled for October 27.

The Omni Series Fire TVs have built-in Alexa compatibility, as one would expect from an Amazon device. Even when the TV is switched off, the TVs have built-in far-field voice technology for hands-free control and digital assistant features. This means you can use your voice to control the TV instead of grabbing the remote.

Most HDR formats, including HDR10 and HLG, are supported by the Omni Series. With Dolby Vision support and a thinner bezel design, the 65- and 75-inch models provide a little more. HDR10+ support, on the other hand, is oddly absent, given that Prime Video supports the standard.

Despite the fact that the TVs don’t appear to have sophisticated visual features like quantum dots or local dimming, they do include one HDMI eARC 2.1 connector. However, because the panels are natively 60Hz, they will not allow advanced gaming capabilities such as 120Hz gaming.

The Omni Series appears to prioritize overall smart TV experience and hands-free Alexa management over high-end image quality, making these sets a suitable option for casual shoppers looking for a fully-featured display for quick Fire TV streaming and connectivity with their other Amazon devices.

4-Series Amazon Fire TV

The Amazon Fire TV 4-Series portfolio will include 43-, 50-, and 55-inch sizes. The cost varies from $370 to $520. For a limited time, purchasers may save $110 on the 50-inch model as part of a special introductory offer. Preorders are already open, with shipping set to begin on October 27.

In comparison to the Omni Series, the 4-Series is aimed as a more entry-level choice with fewer complex capabilities. Although the TVs still support HDR10 and HLG, none of them support Dolby Vision.

Alexa is also supported, but the 4-Series lacks far-field functionality embedded into the display itself. Instead, an Alexa remote with voice control and digital assistant features is supplied.

Many popular streaming apps are also available through the Fire TV OS. These aren’t intended for home theater viewing because the picture quality criteria are low. However, if you’re more concerned about streaming and Alexa support, these could be good affordable solutions.
