TCL has just taken the wraps off of its new Ultra HDTV lineup, with five new products for consumers to choose from. The new 4K-capable TVs are all HDMI 2.0 compliant, which means you can use HDMI for 60FPS goodness.
Starting with sizes, where we have two non 'Smart TV' models with the EU5700 series, available in 40- and 49-inch. Then we have three Smart TV models, which are all from the UH9500 Smart TV series, these are available in 55-, 65- and 85-inch. The 40-inch is priced at $499, while the 49-inch is $100 at $599.
Moving onto the 55-inch UH9500 Smart TV, which is priced at $799 - this is going to be a hot seller in the coming months at that price. The 65-inch is priced very competitively at $1,299 while the 85-inch is priced for the serious HT users at a whopping $7,999. The 40- and 49-inch models are the models TCL will be pushing for gamers, photographers, designers or people who want to display Ultra HD content from an external device.
The UH9500 series features 802.11 2x2 dual-band Wi-Fi, with the 55- and 65-inch models powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, a quad-core GPU, an advanced 120Hz refresh rate, three HDMI inputs, and two USB ports (one USB 2.0, one USB 3.0). The top-of-the-line 85-inch UH9500 series TV is powered by the same CPU and GPU, but pumps the refresh rate up to 240Hz, features enhanced audio thanks to its dual 15W speakers and Dolby Digital technology for more immersive sound.
These new 4K-powered TVs from TCL will be made available in Q4 2014.
