TCL has officially launched its TV lineup for 2023 along with pricing information.
The 2023 TCL TV lineup has striking design features with a modern bezel-less design and metal finish, they support multiple voice assistants and come with built-in entertainment platforms.
TCL also announced that it would be launching an online streaming service in 2023 to provide users with more content options.
TCL Q Class TV Lineup
The TCL Q Class TV lineup has top-of-the-line TV sets with QLED displays. TCL says the displays on the Q6, Q7, and QM8 TVs leverage new display technologies to provide detailed and realistic images with improved color accuracy.
The TCL Q6 TV is a 4K QLED TV with a 60Hz refresh rate. The TV delivers brighter images using a high-brightness LED backlight and improved audio using Dolby Atmos spatial audio and DTS Virtual: X.
TCL claims the TV has “Motion Rate 240” capabilities, which indicates that TCL has included software and AI features that enhance the 60Hz panel refresh rate to simulate a 240Hz refresh rate. If the technology is well implemented, the TV could pull this off without you noticing the difference.
In addition, the TCL Q6 TV also has a Game Accelerator that delivers a 120 variable refresh rate and an Auto Game Mode with AMD FreeSync for better gaming. HDR PRO+ delivers better contrast and image details, while Google TV OS gives users access to YouTube, prime video, Disney+, Apple TV, Netflix, and more, alongside smart home functionality such as the ability to view CCTV/doorbell video feed on-screen and control smart lighting/speakers.
The TCL Q6 will be available in the following sizes:
- 55-inch model – $499.99
- 65-inch model – $699.99
- 75-inch model – $899.99
- 85-inch model – $1,599.99
The TCL Q7 builds on the features of the Q6. It can reach up to 1,000 nits brightness using high-brightness PRO LED backlight and deliver improved contrast using TCL’s Full Array Pro technology.
The TV has a 120Hz panel refresh rate which TCL is optimizing to enable it to produce Motion Rate 480 for a smoother viewing experience, a 240Hz variable refresh rate through the Game Accelerator feature, and Auto Game Mode with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro for pro-gamers.
The Q7 will be available in the following sizes:
- 55-inch model – $749.99
- 65-inch model – $999.99
- 75-inch model – $1,399.99
- 85-inch model – $2,199.99
The 2023 TCL QM8 is the flagship TV in the 2023 TCL TV lineup. It comprises all the features of the Q6 and Q7, but it takes it up a notch.
The QM8 uses TCL’s high-brightness ULTRA Direct LED backlight to produce double the brightness of the Q7, and uses the AIPQ Engine Gen3 to improve picture quality with deeper blacks, brighter whites, and overall improved color accuracy.
The primary benefit of a brighter panel is the ability to see details on the images on the screen, especially in well-lit rooms, so the QM8 might be the ideal choice for you if you have a bright room and are looking to switch to a 2023 TCL TV.
Other features of the QM8 include a 240Hz variable refresh rate using the Game Accelerator, Motion Rate 480, improved audio using Dolby Atmos and a built-in subwoofer, Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, and a striking form factor.
The QM8 is available in the following sizes:
- 65-inch model – $1,699.99
- 75-inch model – $2,299.99
- 85-inch model – $2,799.99
- A 98-inch model will be launched later in 2023 for $9,999.99.
TCL S Class TV Lineup
The TCL S Class lineup is the more affordable and accessible class of TVs in the 2023 TCL TV lineup. As such, the S Class TVs have fewer features and frills compared to the Q Class. But just because it’s cheaper and has fewer features doesn’t mean these TVs are not modern and sleek – we were stunned by some of the “lifestyle” images TCL released for the S3 and S4.
The TCL S3 has a 1080p FHD display with HDR 10 and can double as a PC monitor for users who want a TV with ultra-thin bezels and more screen space. TCL says the S3 is ideal for users who want an entry-level budget TV that still delivers good contrast, color accuracy, and detailed images.
The S3 has the usual array of ports, including high-speed HDMI inputs, and Bluetooth connectivity so you can connect your devices and headphones. TCL has yet to release pricing and availability information for the S3.
Last but not least, the TCL S4 has a 4K UHD display that uses Dolby Vision and HDR 10 to produce improved images.
The S4 uses a combination of Dolby Atmos and DTS Virtual: X to deliver more immersive audio, it also supports Motion Rate 240 and Auto Game Mode, and will have 43, 50, 55, 65, 75, and 85-inch model choices starting at $279.99.
