AMAZON has slashed the price of a huge 50-inch TV by £80.

It means you’ll pay just £299 for a massive telly that can play both 4K and HDR content.

This 50-inch Hisense telly has received a huge price cut

The TV usually goes for £379 so this works out at a 21% discount.

But it’s already a very good price for a TV of this size.

The brand is Hisense, which is known for producing decent TVs at very low prices – so a sale makes the deal even sweeter.

Using a price tracker, we’ve also confirmed that Amazon has never sold this telly for a lower price.

For instance, this television has a 4K (or Ultra HD) screen.

That means it has four times the number of pixels compared to a regular Full HD TV.

So if you’ve got high-quality 4K content to watch (from the likes of Netflix or Amazon Video) then you’ll be able to enjoy it in its true glory with your 4K telly.

What is 4K, Ultra HD and UHD?

Here's an easy guide to what 4K means…

  • 4K, Ultra HD and UHD are all different names for the same type of TV screen. 4K refers to the number of pixels on your TV screen – or the “image resolution”
  • The pixels are the tiny dots of colour that make up the image you see on your telly. A pixellated image is one where the pixels are really obvious, because there aren’t many. But images with lots of pixels – like a 4K movie – generally look sharper and clearer
  • A true 4K screen has 4096 x 2160 pixels. That means on your TV screen there are 3840 pixels across, and 2160 pixels vertically. That’s roughly 8.3 million pixels on the display in total
  • 4K gets it’s name because it’s got four times the number of pixels as a standard Full HD TV
  • Full HD (or 1080p) screens have 1920 pixels across, and 1080 pixels going upwards – for around two million pixels in total. So 4K just means your TV has many more pixels on the screen compared to a more common Full HD display
  • Ultra HD, or UHD, is basically the same as 4K. If you buy a UHD telly in a shop, you’ll be able to watch 4K content on it with no bother
  • But there is a small difference. Almost every TV you ever buy has an aspect ratio of 16:9. That means for every 16 pixels horizontally, there are 9 vertically
  • True 4K footage doesn’t quite fit in with that ratio, so you won’t often find TVs with 4096 x 2160 pixels. Instead, to fit with the 16:9 ratio, most 4K TVs will have 3840 x 2160 pixels instead
  • If it doesn’t make sense, grab a calculator and divide 2160 by 9. Then multiply it by 16, and you’ll get 3840. That’s the aspect ratio working its magic. So when you see an Ultra HD TV, it just means it’s a 4K image with slightly fewer vertical pixels
  • If you try watching a 4K video on a non-4K TV, the video will still play – but it won’t be in 4K quality. To watch a 4K video in 4K quality, you’ll need to fork out for a 4K TV. Similarly, if you’re watching standard or HD footage on a 4K TV, it won’t magically become 4K quality
  • Some TVs promise “4K upscaling”, which converts your standard or HD footage to near-4K quality. This works by using software to guess what colours would fill the extra empty pixels missing in HD footage, and then filling them in. This creates a 4K-like effect, but it’s not true 4K

But this TV has another trick up its sleeve: HDR, or High Dynamic Range.

If you can source some HDR content, you’ll enjoy a wider range of colours and improved contrast (brighter whites and darker blacks) on this TV screen.

Just like 4K, the roster of HDR content out there is growing – and can be found on all the usual streaming platforms.

Samsung revealed an 8K TV earlier this year.

And rival Sony fired back with an enormous 98-inch 8K TV of its own.

But LG’s incredible 65-inch “rollable” TV will probably turn more heads than anything else.
