You should know that the Chinese company Hisense is one of the largest manufacturers of televisions. Although only half of Hisense’s brand TVs are made under its brand, the rest are outsourced production. For example, Toshiba brand TVs are also produced by Hisense. While trying to produce as many TVs as possible, the company does not follow a uniform policy. It is noticeable that TV models differ from region to region, and no other manufacturer has so many operating systems.
