Hisense TV is manufactured by a Chinese company with the same name. You should know that Hisense is the largest OEM manufacturer of TV sets; Hisense provides a wide range of custom TV sets, so only 50% of the TV sets produced have the Hisense brand name. This is probably why there were hundreds of different TV models before 2021. 

The meaning of the Hisense TV model number is explained.

Before 2022, the model numbers of TVs differed according to the region. We can distinguish the main areas: Europe, North America (USA, Canada, Mexico), North Africa, and Australia.

There were two types of model numbers, one for North America, Canada, and Australia. There were two model numbers for Europe and Europe: one old, which was changed to a new one in 2018. You may see TVs with both types of model numbers. This is due to the gradual transition to a uniform designation for TV models worldwide. In 2021, Hisense began assigning the same model numbers by structure to its TVs. 

Example of Hisense TV model number, meaning explanation

Since 2021, the model numbers of TVs have been standardized a little bit by Hisense, and now you can get information about the TV from the model number; here is what information is available. Let’s look at an example, take model number 65U77HQ, and I’ll tell you how to decode it.

  • 65 is the screen size in inches
  • U – TV range, this is very relative as it usually just marks out a particular TV feature such as OLED, UHD, or Full HD
  • 7 – TV series in the line.
  • 7 – The TV model in the series may not be present in some TV models; for example, this letter is absent from the OLED TV. 
  • H – the year of development of the TV model, how to navigate I will tell you next. 
  • Q – design

Hisense TVs by year, what year is my Hisense TV

Hisense adheres to the rule that new models start in the middle of the year and continue to be produced at the beginning of the following year. This is typical for OEMs; early in the year, the development of new models, solves the issue of supplies, and production starts in the second half of the year. If you’re interested in pre-2014 TV models, you’ll need to look up the year of release from various sources, technical documentation, reviews, and TV reviews. After 2014, you can look for the letter indicator of the year the TV was developed and the beginning of sales.

  • H – 2021/2022
  • G – 2020/2021
  • F – 2019/2020
  • E – 2018/2019
  • D – 2017/2018
  • C – 2016/2017
  • B – 2015/2016
  • A – 2014/2015

How to know which region your Hisense television is designed for

You should know that different regions have different digital broadcasting standards; for example, North America has the ATSC standard, and Europe has DVB. To identify Hisense TVs add the international country code at the end of the model number, so you may see the 75U8H USA model is a TV for the United States. And the 75U8H AU model is for Australia. But there’s nothing listed for most countries, so be careful when choosing your TV and choose which digital tuner the TV has. Oddly enough, on some Hisense websites, such as those in Mexico and Argentina, I didn’t find any detailed specifications of the TVs, only advertising images.

Hisense serial number lookup: Hisense model number lookup

Of course, if you need the model number or the serial number of your Hisense TV, you need to find it first. You may also need the serial number when contacting customer service. Here’s where you can find that information.

You can always find the model number and serial number on the back of your TV. There’s always a sticker there with information about the TV. By the way, Hisense recommends that you look for information about the TV on the sticker; it’s the most accurate information there.
The model number can also be found in the TV menu. However, with so many TV models and operating systems on them, the order of searching for the model number and the serial number of your Hisense TV is very different. For example, here below, I have shown a picture of the menu Hisense TV; as you can see, the information can be found in the “System Massage” menu; the serial number is just zeros, and the model number was called “Service code”.
A third option for finding the serial number and model number is the packing box; I recommend taking a picture or saving part of the packing box with a sticker info about the TV.

Old model number of Hisense TV until 2021

As I said before 2021, there were many different model numbers of televisions. I can explain this by the fact that the company favored the production of televisions through the outsourcing system; the production of its models of televisions was secondary. This is still observed to some extent, but the company is trying to extend its brand.

A brief overview of Hisense TVs

Hisense is a manufacturer of inexpensive televisions. About 50% of TVs are made under the Hisense brand name. The model numbers of televisions do not reflect their technical capabilities. The model number is just an identifier of the television. You have to be very careful when choosing a TV; Hisense makes TVs on six platforms, a TV can have six different operating systems on it, and if you pick up a TV hoping to watch some streaming service, it might not be on the TV. Hisense makes TVs with these operating systems:

  • Google TV.
  • Roku TV.
  • Fire TV
  • Vidaa TV
  • XClass TV
  • Android TV

Explanation of model number of Hisense TV (USA, Canada) 55H9050E

Hisense began selling TVs in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico earlier than in Europe. In 2014, new TV model number designations were introduced. We’ll look at how to understand the Hisense TV model number designation from 2014 for the North American market.

  • 55 – TV diagonal size
  • H – The indicator of the country for which the TV is made. Or differences in TVs
    • H – Hisense smart TV (US)
    • R – US TV with pre-installed program to access Roku TV
    • P – TVs for sale in Australia
    • О – TVs for sale in Japan
    • E – TVs for sale in China

How do I know the year of my Hisense TV until 2021?

You can find out the year of your Vizio TV from the model number. The last letter in the model number indicates the year of development of the model.

  • G – 2020
  • F – 2019
  • E – 2018
  • D – 2017
  • С – 2016
  • B – 2015
  • A – 2014

Explain model number Hisense TV (Europe)

Europe does not use the same model numbers as the U.S. Hisense uses a different television designation. For Europe, the new model number designation was introduced in 2018. So you may have seen TV models with very different model numbers then.

  • U – ULED TV, 4K TV screen. O – OLED TV
  • 9 -series TV
  • A – start year of production of televisions A – 2018, B – 2019, С – 2020

      The software update at Hisense is problematic OS Vidaa is their own OS.

    • These are identical TVs assembled on the same MSD6683 chassis
      TP.MST6683T.PB732 TP.MST6683T.PB753
      32E5606EX 40E5606EX (LED40B6600, 43B6600, 32B6600). There may be different screens or the TVs are made for different countries.

  1. In UAE I was buying 85U8WFV having VIDAA 3 OS and it is 2019 Model, they said it is out of stock and advised me to take new model 85U8QF which has VIDAA 5 as OS.

    Are these same TVs or any lower specs in 85U8QF ? Please help.

    • In the case of Hisense, it is very hard to say anything specific. Many TV models have model numbers that vary from region to region. Logically the technical parameters should be the same. But in this case I do not know.

  2. Can you decode the model available in uae
    Hisense 65U7WF( year and category)
    It’s sold as ULED tv here

    • 55 – size
      U – ULED TV with a screen made using quantum dot technology

      UW – mofication

  3. I am interested in a H8G or H9G and I am living in Germany, which are the most similar model numbers sold here in Germany? what about U7QF and U8QF?

  4. Hi there I’m from Malaysia and I’m looking for the Hisense H9G. The only ULED model I have is U800QF. This is the latest model. Should I get this TV? Is it the same range as H9G?

  5. What about the Hisense AE7000F? They sell it in Europa and on the Hisense Website they write “new in 2020”. What does A,E and F mean in this context? Thanks 🙂

  6. Even after reading your article I’m having trouble figuring out what my model number means

    MN: HU55A6800FUW

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks for your time.

      • Thanks! What is the model number published for this tv? I think the one i mentioned was the internal model.. how did you know that it was a 2018 model?

        • In Hisense, everything is very complicated, there is no single standard for television production. Hundreds of models of TV sets are produced in different factories.
          This board was installed in the TV sets of 2019. But this is a modification of the TV board in 2018.
          In general, Hisense wants to produce as many TVs as possible at a minimum price. Because of this a lot of complaints about the quality of TVs.

    • 6 – series
      7 – model
      00 – design
      PA – modification (For example, the type of screen PA is Full HD, HA is HD)

    • Since Hisense, produces many models of TVs, including the outsourcing scheme, there is no unified system of TV models. We can’t say anything specific about the x32n2176h TV model.

    • Is the model number of the TV correctly specified. According to the model number, it is 2020, but there is no information on the official websites of Hisense.
