Metz Android TVs Specifications and Features

For the unaware, Metz is a Television brand from Germany. With the Smart TV market growing at a rapid pace in the country, the German-based company decided to step its foot via online-only strategy. To sell its Smart TVs in the country, Metz has partnered with Amazon and the TVs are already available for purchase starting at Rs 12,999.

Talking about Smart TVs itself, there are four models- M32E6 (32-inch), M40E6 (40-inch), M50G2 (50-inch) and M55G2 (55-inch). The Metz Android TV M55G2 model has an HD display and it’s priced at Rs 12,999, while the Metz Android TV M40E6 model has Full HD display and costs Rs 20,999. The other models are M50G2 and M55G2; They offer a 4K display with slight hardware changes internally and are priced at Rs 36,999, Rs 42,999 respectively.

Sadly, Metz did not reveal the hardware specifications of its Android TVs, though. However, the company through a press statement confirmed that all the four Smart TVs boot Android TV platform based on Android TV 8.0 and not Android 9 Pie, which is underwhelming. As noted, apps such as Netflix, Hotstar, YouTube, and so on come pre-installed with all the TVs.

There’s built-in Chromecast support as well and the company is bundling a voice-enabled remote inside the retail box. As for the ports, there are two USB ports, HDMI port, AV port among others.

It has been just one year since Xiaomi’s foray into the Indian Television market. The company launched affordable TVs, terming them as Smart TVs, and the competitors jumped into the bandwagon soon after. We now have Smart TVs running Android TV platform starting at just Rs 12,999. Xiaomi’s own Mi TV 4C Pro 32-inch model costs Rs 12,999 in the country and it can be purchased via offline market too.
