The new line of TVs: The Xtra arrives
Vouzas explains that looking at the television offer on the market a few years ago, “We asked ourselves: with all these products, how can we explain to our friends and relatives which one to choose? We have therefore tried to concentrate the choice on some strategic products, to have them developed by the best people. In 2019 we therefore launched The One, a simple and accessible product, to then launch the top of the OLED+ range (both with Ambilight). But who needs a little more than The One but isn’t ready for OLED+ yet? From today, it arrives The Xtra”.
The first model of The Xtra is a 9308 MiniLED TV, which will arrive in the third quarter of 2023 in 55 and 65-inch formats.
