BQ has released six budget televisions in Russia. All models are characterized by digital TV support, which is relevant for Russia after the transition to digital broadcasting, and they all cost less than 9,000 rubles. In the future, BQ plans to expand its range of TVs with models with larger displays and smart TV support.
The Russian company BQ has released six new models of compact TVs in the domestic market. All new items cost no more than 9 thousand rubles. They are available for sale in large electronics stores.
Six TVs can be divided into three lines of two models, with differences primarily in the diagonals of displays. The younger series includes TV with 21.5-inch screens, the next 23.6 inches, the third 31.5 inches.
The 21.5-inch lineup includes the BQ 2201B and BQ 2202B televisions. Models cost 6490 rubles. each, support Full HD resolution (1920×1080 pixels) and have two 3 W speakers.
The screen of both TVs received viewing angles of 170 degrees horizontally and 160 degrees vertically, the ability to display 16.7 million colors and LED backlight. The televisions have analog and digital (DVB-C / T / T2 / S2) tuners, satellite TV antenna input, one HDMI and USB connector, as well as component and composite inputs and a coaxial output.
In terms of design, the first six BQ TVs do not differ from each other
The dimensions of the TVs were 502x153x334 mm with a stand and 502x66x299 mm without it. Power consumption during operation does not exceed 36 watts. In terms of characteristics, there are no differences between the models.
BQ 2401B and BQ 2402B televisions with 23.6-inch diagonal screens are next in the list of BQ's new products. The acoustics in them are more powerful in comparison with the younger models – 16 W (two speakers of 8 W each), but the resolution is lower – 1366 × 768 pixels (HD format).
In fact, the BQ 2401B and BQ 2402B differ from the previous line only in display sizes, matrix resolution, acoustics and physical dimensions – 552x67x332 mm without a stand and 552x151x366 mm with it. The rest of the specifications are identical – the viewing angles of the matrix, the number of connectors, and the presence of a digital tuner in addition to the analog one coincide.
