At CES 2021, TCL has unveiled their latest TVs including their new 8K TVs.
“Last year was a unique one for TCL but through it all, the team never lost sight of its goal to become America’s preferred consumer electronics brand and maintain its status the number two selling brand of television in the United States. Not only did consumer needs propel us toward that achievement as people looked to their TV for entertainment more than ever, but large screens were in demand and picture performance became even more important. As a result, technology like miniLED and QLED made so much more sense as we approached CES,” said Chris Larson, Senior Vice President, TCL. “And thanks in no small part to TCL’s advantages as a vertically integrated company, while our TVs are getting bigger, better, brighter and more accessible, our other categories like audio, mobile phones and home appliances continue to thrive as well.”
TCL 6-Series 8K TV (2021)
For their 2021 models, TCL’s 6-Series Roku TVs will all feature 8K resolution. This is a step-up from that 4K that the company has offered previously.
Since there is a lack of native 8K content, TCL will be using their AiPQ Engine to upscale content to 8K.
The new TVs will use mini-LED backlight technology, which made it’s way to the 6-Series (2020) TVs.
While the 6-Series 8K TVs are launching later this year, the 4K version of the lineup will still be available.
TCL hasn’t announced an exact release date or pricing for their 8K TVs but they will be coming to Canada and the US.
TCL XL Collection
For those of you wanting a bigger screen size, TCL will be launching the XL Collection.
The XL Collection is separate from TCL’s traditional TV series, apart from the 85-inch size being added to the 4-Series.
Previously, the biggest screen size that TCL offered was 75-inches.
The XL Collection will include the following:
- TCL 85″ 4-Series Roku TV
- TCL 85” QLED TCL Roku TV (85R745)
- TCL 85” miniLED powered 8K TV
The 4-Series Roku TV (85-inch) is launching in North America in the next few months, and priced at $1,599 USD. The 85” QLED TCL Roku TV (85R745) and 85” miniLED powered 8K TV will arrive later.
Canadian pricing hasn’t been announced.
