Both are 75 inches and incorporate TCL’s Quantum Dot display technology. There’s support for Dolby Atmos, and the smart TV interface is powered by Android TV with built-in Google Assistant technology and Roku (North America only). More information on the 8-series TV will be disclosed in the near future.
However, we do have details about the X10 QLED 8K TV. It supports Wide Colour Gamut (WCG), with a panel whose coverage comes close to 100% of the DCI-P3 colour space. It also boasts what TCL refers to as Ultra-contrast control zones, which enables “precise backlight control to deliver better, ultra-vivid picture quality.”
There’s support for Dolby Vision HDR as well as an integrated (Dolby Atmos) soundbar from Onkyo. The soundbar benefits from AI, too, which allows it to work as an independent sound system when the TV is off. It sports an elegant design, measuring 14.5mm at its thinnest point.
The TCL X10 QLED 8K TV will be available in selected markets in the second half of 2019. No word on the price just yet, but we imagine it will be expensive.
