This amazing feature is common on most android Smartphone, but Hisense was able to replicate this on their android televisions. Blind citizens can easily select or listen to options while trying to view or watch a particular movie or TV show of their choice. This TTS [Text-to-speech] comes with a variety of languages that anyone can choose from, depending on which language the user prefers. Quality products - likewise ease-of-use – don’t discriminate. Everyone is entitled to the good things in life, irrespective of your condition. Hisense took this into consideration while manufacturing their Android TVS.
8). HISENSE IS AN OEM (ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURER): An original equipment manufacturer can be regarded as a company that manufactures or produces parts and equipment that can or may be marketed by another manufacturer. What this means is this: Other brands in same industry as Hisense, often come to them to demand that specific products they would wish Hisense produces or creates for them. These products are based on the requirements of the company for whom Hisense is building the products for. These products are still of very high quality, but they are built to the OEM specification instead of from Hisense branded target market specifications. This shows that Hisense usually come up with better product design, tailored to the taste of the other brands needing them. The brands get to use their own brand name on the products too.
9). OWNERS OF SHARP TELEVISION AND TOSHIBA INSURANCE: In a major development in the consumer electronics industry, Hisense, one of China’s largest TV makers, and fourth-largest in the world, acquired the North American Manufacturing assets of Japan-based SHARP, as well as securing brand name rights for the U.S. market. Now, Hisense manufactures all TVs bearing the Sharp brand name in the U.S. The license for Hisense to use the SHARP brand name has a term of five years from 2015 with an option to extend. This also led to the purchase of a Mexico facility from SHARP for $23.7 million. In the same move to dominate the electronics, Hisense, in November 2017, announced that it would acquire a 95% controlling stake in TOSHIBA insurance for $113 million. Toshiba is a Japanese multinational conglomerate headquartered in Minato, Tokyo. Toshiba is organized into four groupings: the Digital Products Group, the Electronics Devices group, the Home Appliances Group and the Social Infrastructure Group (This is where Hisense has a stake). This seems like a calculated move to gradually amass enough capacity to buy massive stakes in the other 3 groupings of TOSHIBA. If this becomes a reality, Hisense would take over almost 30% - 40% of the world’s electronics market.
