TCL has already of seasons betting on the miniLED technology and now on the occasion of CES 2021 they have announced the arrival of a third generation that promises to improve the performance and also the external appearance of the TVs.
It is what they have come to call technology LCD-miniLED OD Zero, terminology that refers to “Optical distance zero”, since TCL has managed to eliminate the distance that existed between the layer of the miniLED and the layer of the LCD, essential in this type of screens.
Thanks to this, a much reduced thickness of the TV that can be between 1.5 and 2 cm without losing performance, even improving them, since a more even light distribution rear. OD Zero, however, is not the same technological approach that the manufacturer proposed at CES 2020 last year and which they called “Viridian”, since in this other case the miniLEDs were mounted directly on the LCD layer while now they are two different layers although glued one to the other.
However, it seems that the advantages will be similar, they will have Tens of thousands of miniLEDs and thousands of FALD control zones independent, although they have not given concrete figures. In addition, perhaps the simplest and cheapest panels to manufacture, this last point is important for TCL, since this season they intend to bring miniLEDs closer to the medium and medium-high ranges and will even offer some televisions with 8K resolution on your 6-Series line (although it is not clear if these models will have miniLEDs), which corresponds to the manufacturer’s mid-range.
TCL XL Collection
Another novelty for this season is the arrival of a new range of televisions baptized as XL Collection whose main novelty is that they will have sizes of 85 inches (hence the XL), although using different panel technologies.
Thus, there will be a line called Series 4 with 4K LCD-LED paneles, another Series 7 con LCD-LED and 8K resolution and finally a model with LCD-miniLED and 8K resolution, all of them with Roku operating system.
The 7 Series will also feature ports HDMI 2.1 compatible with VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and 120 Hz input signals. It will also be compatible with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos audio.
Price and availability
Although it is not usual for these types of fairs to give specific prices, TCL has wanted to communicate some figure so that we can guide ourselves and they have advanced that the Serie 4 of the XL Collection with 85 inches will go on sale in the United States in the first quarter of the year for a price of $ 1,599.
