TCL has followed in the footsteps of Samsung and LG by also announcing their first ever 8K TV at IFA — the X10. But you'll be waiting awhile for them
The X10 won't be be hitting Australian shores until 2019, but this is what we know so far.
Joining the X10 will TCL's Frame TV+ and a 4K X8. The former features, as the name suggests, a unique artistic frame design that seems to be an answer to the Samsung Frame.
All three models will feature Onkyo sound technology, Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and Quantum Dot picture technology.
"TCL’s 2019 range will give Australians the opportunity to experience a new level of immersive and seamless entertainment. Our new models aim to enhance the experiences our customers crave, but also aim to prepare our customers for new developments in the market, such as the introduction of Google Assistant – which is yet to reach Aussie shores," said Jason Carrick, TCL’s Australian National Sales Director.
AI is also a focus, with Alexa and Google Assistant working alongside TCL's Android O operating system.
"Over the last few years we have had a strong focus on integrating our technology into the way we live – both from a user experience and home design perspective. Artificial intelligence is touching our lives in more ways than one, which is why TCL’s 2019 range will focus on AI T-Home, to continue to utilise developments in AI and drive a seamless connected life by connecting all smart home services. Australians can expect to be blown away by our 2019 range, there really is a model for everyone to enjoy a new level of entertainment and experience," said Carrick.
Sadly we won't get pricing or a release date for the new TCL TV series unti 2019, but we will get a sneak peak during IFA.
