During the last CES 2023 TCL announced its mid-ranges of smart televisions for this season, although it left the premium sector somewhat deserted, which would be announced later with a new line of large format or “XL” screens according to the manufacturer.
Under the commercial name of QD-Mini LED (miniLED technology with quantum dots) the brand has now presented models with sizes of extra large diagonal that are going to arrive imminently on the Spanish market, with the most competitive prices.
QD-Mini LED X955, the manufacturer’s new flagship
The great novelty of the brand for this new course is the TV X955a real beast with miniLED technology but this time it boasts a backlight control system using a FALD zone matrix with nothing less than 5,000 different sectorswhich is almost 10 times more than its current mid-range models.
In addition, it also promises to give the grade in terms of brightness, with figures that will reach 5,000 nits as they have commented in the presentation. Thanks to QLED technology, the TCL X955 will produce more than one billion colors and is capable of covering 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamut.
It is powered by AiPQ 3.0 processor, TCL’s latest proprietary AI algorithms, support for HDR and will be TUV Rheinland certified. It will also stand out for its integrated sound systema team that aims to make it unnecessary to buy a separate bar to watch movies.
Specifically, as is usual in TCL’s most cutting-edge models, the X955 features a powerful integrated audio system signed by Onkyowith a configuration of 4.2.2 channels and a power of up to 160W Dolby Atmos compatible.
As for the design, we find ultra-thin stylized shapes without bezel with a cable management system and diagonals that will be reserved only for the 85″ and 98″.
TCL C955 and C805, two new high-end mainstays
As a complement to the X955 model, the brand has also announced the arrival of other models in its catalogue. two televisions with high-end and mid-high range focus that offer a more contained price by lowering the specifications in terms of control areas, brightness and diagonal.
The first of them is him C955, also from the QD-Mini LED line but this time with 2,000 zones of FALD control compared to the 5,000 of its older sister. The sound system will also be signed by Onkyo but the maximum power is lowered to more than solvent ones 120 wattsbeing compatible with Dolby Atmos.
It will be available in sizes 65″, 75″, 85″ and 98″ in “global markets”, although for the moment in Spain we will only be able to buy the largest models, that is, the 85″ and 98″ models. However, during the presentation the brand stated that the rest of the sizes would arrive next year.
The other interesting model in the upper-medium range is the C805 televisionwhich reduces the brightness levels to about 1,300 nits and lighting control zones up to 500 in the 65-inch versionalthough its gaming focus means it comes with a 144 Hz refresh rate compatible with VRR.
It will be available in Spain in sizes 50″, 55″, 65″, 75″, 85″ and 98″.
TCL P745, a mid-range of gigantic proportions
In its commitment to the big inch, TCL also offers a more affordable range with which to conquer our living rooms. It is model P745 with diagonals of 85 and 98 inches.
This time we have compatibility with HDR10 and HLG, but the panel technology is Direct LED with ‘Wide Color Gamut’, so it should be expected to offer less dynamic contrast than its older brothers with FALD.
However, as the manufacturer has commented, it is a model “designed for gamers”with features such as Game Master Pro 2.0, refresh at 144Hz native VRR and up to 240Hz in Game Accelerator mode for a smoother, low-latency gaming experience.
Like the rest of the models, the 98P745 also has the Google Smart TValong with Google Assistant and Alexa compatibility for hands-free control.
