The company's newest 4K displays will launch this Spring.
TCL has detailed its upcoming 2018 4K Roku Ultra HD TV lineup. The collection will include the 6-Series and the 5-Series, with sizes ranging from 43-inches to 65-inches.
"This year, TCL is really pushing the boundaries when it comes to what kind of viewing experience consumers should expect from their TVs and sound systems. We're working smarter throughout the company and with our partners to make sure people understand that there’s a whole new level of home entertainment out there within reach,” said Chris Larson, Senior Vice President, TCL North America. "As we continue to innovate, we’re able to produce televisions engineered with features that maximize technologies which already exist in our sets like Dolby Vision and the Roku OS to deliver outstanding performance at an incredible value."
The flagship 55-inch and 65-inch 6-Series displays will feature Dolby Vision and HDR10 support, along with the Roku OS smart TV platform. In addition, the sets use Contrast Control Zone Technology with 96 dimming zones on the 55-inch model and 120 zones on the 65-inch model. Likewise, the panels use NBP Photon technology with LED phosphors to provide Wide Color Gamut support. A new iPQ Engine is being implemented as well to maximize coverage of the DCI-P3 gamut and provide accurate color settings right out of the box. An HDR Pro Gamma feature is also offered to maintain details in dark and bright scenes regardless of a room's lighting conditions. Finally, the 6-Series will feature a bold, brushed metal finish.
Meanwhile, the step-down 5-Series will be available in 43-inch, 49-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch models. This series will also incorporate Dolby Vision and HDR10 support, along with the Roku smart TV platform, wide color gamut capabilities, the new iPQ Engine, and HDR Pro Gamma feature. And though the 5-Series does not include Contrast Control Zone Technology, TCL mentions an HDR Dynamic Contrast feature.
Pricing has not been announced yet, but TCL's 2018 6-Series and 5-Series 4K Roku Ultra HD TVs are set to launch this Spring.
