A release window for the new display collection has been announced.
TCL has revealed more launch details for the company's upcoming 6-Series 4K Roku TVs. The collection is now set to arrive by May 1, and will include 55-inch and 65-inch models.
Serving as a successor to the highly rated and affordable 2017 P Series, the flagship 55-inch and 65-inch 2018 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 dimming 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.
Pricing for the 65-inch model has not been confirmed yet, but the 55-inch display is expected to carry the same $650 price tag as last year's P-Series model.
And outside of the 6-Series, TCL is also prepping a step-down 5-Series with 43-inch, 49-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch models. This lineup 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. With that said, the 5-Series will not include Contrast Control Zone Technology. Availability and pricing have not been announced yet.
