    The report says, the TVs would have Alexa, and the screen size will be in the range of 55-75 inches.

    The TVs designed and manufactured by TCL will be initially launching in the US.

    Reportedly, Amazon has been working on the TV for the past two years.

    Amazon has joined hands with BestBuy in India to sell Toshiba and Insignia TVs powered by Amazon Fire TV software.

    According to the report, the TVs will have features like the adaptive volume that will enable Alexa to respond louder when it recognizes a noise background. It will ensure that users can hear Alexa even with background noises, including music playing, people talking.
