After unveiling the range at this year's CES in Las Vegas, TCL has launched its 2018 QLED TV range into the Australian market.
“TCL strives to push boundaries and explore innovative possibilities. We aim to provide the next generation in home entertainment to our customers,” said Mark Zhang, General Manager of TCL Australia.
“To ensure we deliver on this promise, we make an ongoing commitment to research and development that not only optimises our products’ picture quality, smart capabilities, sound and design, but works to captivate and inspire. We believe our newest range of TVs does just that.”
The company's flagship X range is headlined by the 85-inch X6, which is priced at a hefty $19,999 and comes with a 12-channel Harman Kardon sound system and support for Dolby Atmos audio. It comes accompanied by the X4 QLED, which is available in 65-inch and 55-inch sizings.
TCL is launching the more-affordable C and P Series, including the C6 QUHD Android TV Series (65”, 55” and 49”) the C4 QUHD Android TV Series (75” and 70”) and the P6 QUHD Android TV (65”, 55”, 50” and 43”).
TCL's 2018 range almost universally features Android TV voice search and Chromecast built-in (with the exception of the 43-inch P6).
In terms of HDR, TCL say that select models in QLED range support a wider color gamut and "HDR Premium" - which is just a fancy-sounding term that covers HDR10.
