2018 TCL TVs: Models, Features, Release Date and Prices

The TCL TV line-up for 2018 has been announced at CES 2018.

TCL is the fastest growing TV brand in the United States. We assume that TCL has to thank Amazon for that success. TCL TVs continuously occupy the top spots in Amazon's best-selling TV chart. For the first time, TCL had a top reviewed TV model that is more desirable than TVs from top brands like Samsung and LG. TCL could not make enough of the TCL 55P607 4K UHD HDR Dolby Vision Smart TV to satisfy demand. The good news is that TCL is building on top of the success of the P607 with the 2018 TCL TV line-up.

Update: The new 2018 TCL 4K Smart TVs are shipping now from Amazon.

The TCL P6 Series, will be followed up with the 2018 TCL 6-Series. The TCL 6-series will have improved picture performance technologies and feature a brushed metal finish. The set supports Dolby Vision and now boasts HDR Performance Package Pro to further elevate the experience. Dolby Vision transforms entertainment experiences by delivering greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors. The HDR Performance Package Pro includes Contrast Control Zone Technology, a new iPQ Engine, and a versatile HDR Pro Gamma control.

With 96 zones for the 55-inch 6-Series TV and 120 zones for the 65-inch model, TCL’s Contrast Control Zone technology identifies bright and dark areas in each frame of content and controls each zone within the frame to yield striking contrast between light and dark areas.

An all new iPQ Engine allows for precision color performance, tailored to deliver accurate and optimized DCI-P3 color space coverage. And no matter what environment this TCL model is placed in, from a dim home theater to a sun-lit living room, details remain visible with HDR Pro Gamma’s tone map that accurately reproduces every detail within the darkest and brightest scenes.

The TCL 6-series also features Wide Color Gamut with NBP Photon technology for even more realistic colors, as the latest LED phosphors drive color performance closer to the limits of human vision while targeting the DCI-P3 color space standard in which Hollywood studios create the highest-quality content.

The 6-Series comes equipped with a new Roku TV Voice Remote with voice search, high-speed 802.11ac wireless and Ethernet networking for faster streaming, three HDMI 2.0a ports with HDCP 2.2 so users can enjoy optimal functionality on all inputs. The TCL 6-series will be available in 55 and 65 inch sizes this Spring. The pricing of the new 2018 TCL 6-series has not been announced yet.

Bringing powerful high dynamic range playback to a mainstream TV line, the brand new 5-Series will feature Dolby Vision HDR imaging combined with a wide color powered by TCL’s NBP Photon technology.

TCL’s totally new 5-Series marries superior 4K UHD picture quality with Dolby Vision for a stellar imaging experience. The 5-Series benefits from TCL’s HDR Performance Package, which features HDR Dynamic Contrast. The HDR Dynamic Contrast solution uses information embedded in Dolby Vision content to create a true cinematic experience by optimizing every scene for an accurate display of details in the bright and dark areas simultaneously, unlike other HDR solutions that have a set brightness level for all content. As with the 6-Series, the models within TCL’s 5-Series lineup introduce both iPQ Engine for precise color replication and HDR Pro Gamma to significantly improve HDR performance in any setting.

Furthermore, the 5-Series TVs come packed with 240 Natural Motion technology for smooth action (55”, 65” only), Wide Color with NBP Photon technology for exceptional colors, brighter highlights and increased contrast, advanced remote, high-speed 802.11ac wireless and Ethernet networking, and three HDMI 2.0a ports with HDCP 2.2.

The 5-Series will be available this Spring with sizes ranging from 43 to 65 inches. TCL has not yet revealed the pricing of the new 2018 TCL 5-series TVs.

The new 2018 TCL 4K Roku Smart TVs are certainly to look forward to. As the new TCL TVs already launch in Spring, you can expect to see the first deals on the 2018 TCL models on Amazon Prime Day 2018 in July.
