Toshiba 2022 range guide: Every TV unveiled at IFA
Toshiba has selected IFA 2022 to debut its latest range of TVs. Here’s everything the company announced during the event.
If you’ve been looking to upgrade to a new Toshiba TV, this year could be the perfect time to do so. The brand has announced a number of firsts for this year, including its first Quantum Dot TV and its first smart sets with Fire TV built-in covering a range of price points.
Toshiba has also revealed that the TikTok TV app will be coming to all of its TVs released since 2019, allowing you to sit down and flick through the short videos on a bigger screen at home.
“It’s really exciting to be introducing two brilliant firsts to the Toshiba line up into the UK. Quantum Dot offers incredible picture quality with fantastic, enhanced colour reproduction, and we’re bringing it into the market at a really accessible price point. It shows our commitment to delivering huge quality to our customers without breaking the bank”, said Toshiba TV’s Director of UK Sales & Marketing, David Flintoft.
“Our first UK Fire TV is another big step for us, stay turned because we have big plans here. We’ve already proved we can take our partnership with Amazon to great places with the Alexa Built-In models and we think Fire TV will be the same”.

The QA5D is Toshiba’s first Quantum Dot TV, claiming to deliver intense colour and a cinematic picture quality.
The TV is powered by the brand’s TRU Picture Engine, with TRU Resolution upscaling, TRU Micro Dimming and TRU Flow MEMC all on board, along with support for Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos audio.
The above is packed into a slim, frameless design with Sound by Onkyo.

Next in line is the UF3D. This TV is the first Toshiba model to launch with Fire TV built-in here in the UK. This makes it a great choice for any household that prefers Amazon’s Alexa as its smart assistant of choice.
The TV comes with the Alexa Voice Remote, allowing you to search for content with your voice, check sports scores, view live camera feeds and more. There’s also support for Apple AirPlay available.
Like the QA5D, this 4K TV leverages Toshiba’s TRU Picture Engine, HDR10, Dolby Vision and Atmos and Sound by Onkyo.

The UK4D is a TV powered by Toshiba’s own operating system, though it also comes with Alexa built-in.
