TCL pledges to make 8K TVs mainstream this year

TCL makes some of the best TVs under $ 1000. In addition, the company was the first to launch models with Mini-LED-matrixes, which LG and Samsung are just beginning to use in their devices. TCL plans to go beyond what has already been achieved this year and make 8K TVs more affordable.

In today’s press release, the company announced that all 6-series Roku TVs will be in 8K resolution. The proprietary TCL AiPQ engine will be able to improve the quality of 4K content for display on 8K panels. The main problem with 8K screens is that there is too little content in this high resolution, and this situation will not change anytime soon. However, TCL intends to reduce the cost of branded 8K TVs, which could stimulate the popularization of 8K resolution among content creators.

TCL boasts of being a far cry from the competition in LCD panel design. This year the company introduced new panels under the OD Zero trademark. In these matrices there is no gap between the display and the backlight system, which makes them much thinner than the usual panels. The company posted a scathing post on its blog after LG announced it would start producing Mini-LED TVs because TCL itself is poised to introduce the second generation of the technology.

The company is reportedly unveiling The XL Collection series of 85-inch TVs this year. They will differ from each other in price and display resolution. In total, the series will feature three models. The first two will receive LCD and QLED 4K panels. The most expensive version will receive an 8K panel.

The most affordable XL Collection TV will launch this quarter for $ 1,600. More expensive devices will appear later this year. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.
