While LG and Samsung are newcomers to the mini-LED field, TCL is used to lighting technology with several models already marketed to its credit, mainly in the United States.
It is on the basis of this experience that the Chinese manufacturer announced its C825, a 4K 120 Hz, QLED television with 2nd generation mini-LED lighting. This last precision is important. This is the argument that will be advanced by TCL when its model is compared to other mini-LEDs on the market.
Mini-LED better than the others?
The C825 is the first TV in this OD Zero Mini-LED range, but for now, the Chinese manufacturer is quite stingy in details about it. TCL does not mention, for example, the number of mini-LEDs integrated into its panel, while it briskly praised the 15,360 diodes present on its 2020 X10. It is also impossible to know the number of zones over which the system will be distributed. backlight.
On the other hand, TCL insists on its mastery of lighting technology, as well as on its know-how in terms of integration. This second generation of mini-LEDs would be made up of even smaller diodes which would quite simply allow more to be put on a filter.
Above all, the manufacturer explains that the space between the QLED panel and its mini-LED filter would be reduced to 0 mm (hence the OD Zero) where the classic models require a space between 10 and 25 mm.
Gluing these two panels without leaving any space between them has two consequences. On the one hand, the possibility of making a thinner television. On the other hand, the fact of further controlling the distribution of luminosity by reducing the possibilities of light leakage.

If the hardware part is full of new features, the C825, like all TCL televisions of 2021, will also have a major argument in terms of software. Indeed, like Sony, the Chinese manufacturer is one of the first to switch to the Google TV interface (formerly Android TV), offering new navigation but above all a host of recommendations.
This new OD Zero range therefore looks very promising from a technical point of view. Especially since, unlike the X10, the C825 should be available in Europe. In fact, last year TCL almost doubled its sales on the Old Continent and made this market one of its priorities this year. Finally, until now TCL has always strived to offer tight prices. It will therefore be interesting to see how this OZ Zero range will position itself compared to the NEO QLED, from Samsung and the QNED, from LG.
