Acer is set to foray into the home entertainment segment in India. The Taiwanese brand will debut its first smart television in September. The company mainly sells laptops in India.
The Acer TVs will be launched under the license of Bengaluru-based Indkal Technologies. The company will be responsible for the development, distribution, and support for Acer TVs in the country. CEO Anand Dubey said in a statement ‘“we will find immense opportunities to showcase the value addition that Acer Televisions will bring to the market and towards improving the overall TV viewing experience.”
Acer televisions to debut in India next month
Acer hasn’t revealed any key specifications of its first televisions. However, we know they will arrive in various sizes ranging from 32-inches to 70-inches. The televisions will be available from Amazon and Flipkart. The Taiwanese brand added that the smart TVs will hit the market sometime in September. Indkal Technologies is expected to share the detailed specifications and pricing of the Acer TVs soon.
Last month, 91Mobiles had exclusively reported Acer’s plans of launching a smart TV. The specifications of the televisions still remain a mystery but we can expect the latest features found on today’s TVs like Android 10 OS, Dolby Atmos, OTT apps, Google Assistant, and more.
India is a big market for television brands and many including Xiaomi, OnePlus, Realme, Motorola, and Nokia have entered the segment in recent years. Acer already makes monitors and it seems like the brand wants to dive into the television category.
We will know more about the Acer smart televisions in the coming days.
