Top Electronics Brand Enhances its Award-Winning Television Lineup with Advanced Home Theater Innovation to Deliver Bigger and Better Screens
IRVINE, May 15, 2023 - Today TCL®, one of the world’s best-selling and leading consumer electronics companies, announced pricing and availability of its new TV line. Constantly pushing the boundaries to achieve greatness in the home theater space, TCL is upgrading its award-winning television portfolio with new products that deliver high quality performance with advanced technology. TCL’s new TV line includes significant picture enhancements and superior gaming capabilities.
TCL’s TVs are critically acclaimed for picture performance - unmatched contrast technology, deep color saturation as well as powerful clarity - and the 2023 lineup continues to build upon that legacy of advanced display innovation with sleek design. The new TCL models will be wrapped in a stylish FullView metal bezel-less design and segmented into two distinct families with unique product identities within the Smart S Class and QLED Q Class. After introducing the world’s first big-screen Quantum Dot TV, launching the world’s first mini-LED TV, and developing its own powerful TCL AIPQ Engine™ technology, TCL is dedicated to bringing the best and biggest screen TVs to customers. Its latest 98” model crowns the new QM8 collection to make it TCL’s largest Q Class TV and the ultimate home theater centerpiece.
“TCL has been a top 2 best-selling TV brand in the US for four consecutive years and with the incredible new products we’re launching today, I have no doubt that we’ll maintain that leadership position in the television space. Our focus on the consumer, coupled with our innovation and vertical integration advantages, has proven to be a winning formula for delivering high-performance and high quality TVs,” said Chris Hamdorf, Senior Vice President, TCL. “Each year we set the bar for the industry as our lineup continues to refine key advancements that we’ve pioneered. With TCL’s immersive extra-large screens and higher resolution content, consumers can replicate the same cinematic ‘field of view’ found in theaters without worrying about viewing distance. Whether it’s movies, sports, shows, or videogames, TCL is poised and motivated to make TVs that will meet everyone’s entertainment needs.”
