First Android TVs from Panasonic: Panasonic has been using My HomeScreen as a platform for its smart TVs for years. This platform was originally developed by Mozilla and based on Firefox OS. In 2016 Mozilla decided to stop the development of Firefox OS, after which Panasonic itself came up with the further developed My HomeScreen.

Although the smart TV platform from Panasonic itself functions well and is user-friendly, it is not a very extensive platform with hundreds of apps and applications. In addition, developing the software will probably cost Panasonic more money and time than if the company were to use a platform that already exists.

The HX700, HX710 and HX712 series are Panasonic’s first TV series to feature Android TV, Google’s operating system. The HX700 and HX710 series are the same in terms of specifications, only the color of the frame differs. It is black on the HX700 and silver on the HX710. So it concerns LCD TVs with 4K resolution. The HDR formats HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG are supported. That’s not to say much, though, as the TVs don’t have dimmable LED zones or similar hardware onboard to provide an HDR experience.

The TVs are available in sizes of 43, 50, 55 and 65 inches and cost 550, 600, 700 and 950 euros respectively. These models can now be found in stores in Germany and the UK, among others. In Belgium, the HX700 series is also on the website from Panasonic. The Dutch website does not yet report new Android TVs.
