The official brand licensee for Kodak in India, SSPL brought its first Kodak TV to India in August 2016, and has since launched a range of Kodak-branded TVs in India in HD, Full HD and 4K resolutions. They also come in various sizes going from 32-inches to 50-inches. The TV launched today is the current flagship product offering under the Kodak brand name, and is the most premium TV offered by SSPL in India.
The Kodak 50UHDX Smart 4K LED TV comes shortly after Xiaomi announced its entry into the market with the Mi TV 4. Priced at a bit less than the Xiaomi Mi TV 4, the Kodak TV hopes to offer buyers an alternative option, considering the Mi TV 4 is currently a bit difficult to purchase due to stock shortages and the flash sale model. The Kodak TV will also go up against the recently launched Vu 4K Android TV range, which offers the official Android TV 7.0 operating system.
