Among the others features include a better upscaling system for viewing content on 4K televisions, support for Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos technologies, a remote control with a triangular profile, backlit buttons and a dedicated Netflix quick start button, compatibility with both the Google Assistant with both Amazon's Alexa for interaction using voice commands and an IR module.
