According to reports, Amazon is working on its own brand of smart TVs for the United States, but the specifics of how the TVs would differ from existing Fire TV products were not revealed until last week. Today, Amazon has officially unveiled its new TVs, along with an updated Fire TV Stick designed for cloud gaming. A complete list of each device is available below, but you can also learn more about Amazon’s Luna game streaming service by clicking this link.

Fire TV Onmi Series

“Omni series” is Amazon’s term for its main TV lineup, which works largely the same as the other Fire TV devices currently available. Alexa is built-in, so you can ask Alexa questions, use Picture-in-Picture mode with certain apps, etc. When using a Fire TV with a Fire Studio or other Echo smart speakers, you can improve the sound quality by connecting them to the device.

Here, Alexa can listen to commands without having to press or hold a button, which is required on most other smart TVs. With Alexa built-in, you can open apps, change inputs, and more without having a remote nearby with Amazon‘s Omni TVs. Even if an Echo speaker is connected to a Fire TV, the same functionality is available.

TVs are offered by Amazon in a variety of sizes, including 34″ to 75″ and 50″ to 55″. In addition, all of them are compatible with 4K HDR10 HDR HLG and DTS-HD Master Audio. In addition to Dolby Vision support, the 65′′ and 75′′ models have a slimmer bezel. Otherwise, they are identical to the other sizes. An IR emitter (for controlling other TV devices) and a cable/antenna connection are shown on the back of the device, along with four HDMI ports (one with eARC/ARC). The 43-inch model is priced at $309.99.

Fire TV 4- Series

Along with the Omni-branded TVs, Amazon also offers a line of TVs dubbed the “4-Series.” So, these TVs are more or less the same as any other Fire TV. They lack the hands-free Alexa mode and two-way video calling from the Omni series. Four HDMI ports, Ethernet, an Alexa button on the remote control, and four USB ports are all included.

For $369.98, the 43-inch model in the 4-Series lineup is a bit less expensive than those in the Omni lineup. Sizes range from 43″ to 50″ and 55″ respectively. In light of the fact that the 43-inch smart TV costs $370 and Amazon typically discounts its products by 15-30 percent on Prime Day, I have no doubt Jeff Bezos will sell a lot of these.

Fire TV Stick 4k Max

Another new product is an updated version of the Fire TV Stick 4K, which was released at the end of last year. More power is provided by a new quad-core 1.8GHz chipset in the new Fire TV Stick 4K, as well as 2GB of RAM and Wi-Fi 6 support.

Aside from the Alexa voice remote and access to the Amazon Appstore, the new Fire TV Stick supports most streaming services. Because of Wi-Fi 6 and “Auto Low Latency Mode,” Amazon is making a big deal out of Luna support on the new stick.

On October 7th, the new Fire TV Stick 4K Max will be available for purchase in the United States for $54.99. For the time being, it looks like the current Fire TV Stick 4K will be available.
