Toshiba launches a new lineup of Fire TV Edition televisions

Toshiba has introduced new options for you to choose from when buying a new Fire TV: The manufacturer has launched a range of smart TVs with an integrated Fire TV experience that will be available in five screen sizes. The 43-inch and 50-inch versions are already listed on Amazon and Best Buy for $ 350 and $ 470, respectively, but won’t be in stock until May 13th at the earliest. While the company doesn’t have a release date for them yet, Toshiba will also sell 55-, 65-, and 75-inch versions of the TV in the future.

The new Smart Fire televisions have thinner frames than the previous Toshiba models and have additional HDMI and USB connections. They have 4K resolution supported by the company’s Regza engine, and they support Dolby Vision and HDR10. Since they run Amazon’s Fire OS, they have all of the features you’d expect from a Fire TV, including the ability to display video feeds from compatible video doorbells or other cameras in addition to what you see on the screen.

You can also use voice commands to quickly change the picture and sound settings. For example, you can say “Alexa, set picture mode to film” or “Alexa, set bass to 3”. You can also use the supplied voice remote control to control the power and volume of compatible audio / video receivers and soundbars.

According to AFTVnews, the devices will ship with the older Fire TV interface, but they’ll get the redesigned user interface this summer when it expands to older models. The updated user interface has a new look and feel and introduces user profiles so that up to six members of your household can customize their user experience.
