America's #1 TV Brand Brings Quantum Dots to one of their Hottest-Selling TVs
Big news for Quantum Dots
TCL, the USA’s number one TV brand by volume, announced this week that the company will bring Quantum Dot technology to one of America’s hottest-selling TV lines for the first time. Quantum Dot technology is not new to TCL. In fact, the company was one of the first to adopt Quantum Dots in TVs back in 2014. However, TCL have never included Quantum Dots in their North America lineup. That’s about to change later this summer when the new 2019 TCL 6-Series hits the market with Quantum Dot color.
A critical darling, praised for it’s solid image quality and user-friendly Roku software, the 2018 TCL 6-Series was widely recommended by TV reviewers as a top value pick. The 2019 model picks up where 2018 left off by adding even more value with the addition of Quantum Dots, a technology that’s typically reserved for high-end sets, to a TV that starts at under $600.
The company says Quantum Dots will significantly improve color performance in the 2019 6 Series, bringing color gamut coverage close to 100% of the DCI-P3 standard. As a result image quality should be on par with many of the highest-end TVs on the market. We look forward to seeing the final product later this summer when the company says the 6-Series will hit retail outlets around the US.
In addition to the 6-Series, TCL also announced two ultra high performance models with Quantum Dots: the 8-Series and X10. The 8-Series will be the first TV to ship with a mini-LED full array backlight that contains over 25,000 LEDs in addition to Quantum Dots for amazing color and contrast. It will be available in the fall starting at around $2,000. The X10 will hit the US early next year and, in another first, mark the first Quantum Dot TV from TCL in the US with 8K resolution. Pricing was not announced for the X10.
