Google’s QLED TVs are coming to India in a big way. And many of them are taking the same path. We’ve seen French brand Thomson and German brand Blaupunkt announce their QLED TV series in India in recent days. Both are coming to India through the same contract manufacturer Super Plastronics Pvt Ltd (SPPL).
Now, the same TV manufacturer is bringing the QLED Google TV series from another brand to India. Kodak TV, which until then only made Android TVs, is transitioning to the Google TV platform. It is launching a new lineup of models in its Matrix QLED series. Like Thomson and Blaupunkt, Kodak is also releasing three models, all of which are conservatively priced for the QLED series. And the entire series will be part of the make-in-India initiative.
