Apart from these new brands, Thomson will also compete with the top three TV brands — Sony, Samsung and LG that together account for almost 90 per cent of the market.

Thomson has launched two other models of smart TV of 40 inch and 43 inch screen size, priced respectively at Rs 19,990 and Rs 27,999.

It has entered into exclusive sales agreement with Flipkart for Thomson and its sale would be started tomorrow.
