Arrow TCL unveils 8-series miniLED 4K LCD TVs

TCL unveils 8-series miniLED 4K LCD TVs, improved 6 & 5-series TVs

TCL USA has unveiled its 8-series of 4K LCD TVs with advanced miniLED backlighting. The company is also introducing upgraded 6-series LCD TVs with quantum dots.

As reported by FlatpanelsHD in January 2019, TCL will be bringing miniLED backlight to not only 8K TVs but also 4K TVs. The 8K models are delayed, FlatpanelsHD has learned, but TCL is launching the 4K models later this year as the 8-series in the US and X10 in Europe.

With the new 8-series TVs, China's TCL is hoping to move upmarket and challenge more established TV makers from Japan and Korea. For the task it is introducing the 8-series of 4K LCD TVs with a miniLED backlight consisting of more than 25000 individual miniLEDs (75" size). However, actual dimming zones will be far less numerous at around 1000 zones (75"). The company did not specify peak brightness capabilities.

In addition, the new 8-series TVs will have a quantum dot film in the LCD stack to expand the color space to a claimed 100% DCI-P3. Furthermore, the TVs are built on the Roku platform and will support HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision. They are powered by TCL's iPQ Engine video processor and will also support Dolby Atmos audio. The company is not ready to transition to HDMI 2.1 yet.

TCL's 8-series 4K LCD TVs will be available in the US this fall in 65 inches (65Q825) for $1999 and 75 inches (75Q825) for $2999. The European version, X10, will be formally introduced at IFA 2019 next month.

We will just have to see the reviews on the new TCL back lighting and if any picture improvements for regular NON 4K programing. There isn't much in 4K or 4K UHD streaming and I'm not paying xtra for that. Maybe in 5 years, if tons of 4K movie content. lol.

TV manufactures have to come up with something new, which will boost sales. lol Remember 3D, and the abundance of DVDs and buying a new DVD player. lol. I was not one of them. Were you one of the first to buy an 4K TV, and there still isn't much in 4K streaming content. And you have to pay extra. lol

China's TCL today announced the U.S. availability of its flagship 4K TVs.

The aggressively priced 8 Series comprises two mini-LED-backlit models — the 65-inch 65Q825 ($1,999) and 75-inch 75Q825 ($2,999) — which will be sold only on bestbuy.com and through Best Buy stores across the country.
Pre-orders begin today.

Hailed as the world’s first televisions to utilize mini-LED back-lighting, the 8 Series TVs incorporate Roku's TV platform and feature TCL's Quantum Dot (QLED) color and Quantum Contrast technologies in addition to supporting Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR) and Dolby Atmos object-based surround sound.

The TVs cover 100% color of the DCI-P3 color space and are engineered to push the boundaries of HDR, according to TCL. The 75-inch model, for example, is backlit by 25,000 individual mini-LEDs, enabling it to "directly take on high-contrast OLED TVs."

I tell you, when it comes time to replace any of our TV's, it certainly will be TCL.....at a more than FAIR price to boot with QUALITY!

Current 2 year old TCL 55", 4K HDR, with the Denon AVR that does 30/25/24 upscaling from incoming 1080i cable signal, I couldn't be happier with the picture quality.

If you have an AVR that is capable of Analog or HDMI or both for upscaling, make sure it is turned ON.

Nice news from TCL. Look for the independent, non bias upcoming reviews. I sure LIKE ROKU that comes with TCL, too!
