At IFA, TCL has joined some of the biggest names in TV announcing a new line-up of TVs headed to the Australian and global markets, with the distinction of announcing one of the first 8K resolution TVs headed to Australia.

TCL will be bringing the new X10, Frame TV+ and X8 running a version of Android Oreo and featuring support for Google Assistant and Alexa built-in to Australia next year. Pricing and dates for all three models are yet to be confirmed, but we’re keen to hear more.

The X10 is the 8K model and flagship of the upcoming line with an ultra-high definition resolution of 7,680 x 4,320 (33.2 megapixels) using QLED (Quantum Dot) technology for a wide colour gamut, with ultra-bright 1000nit brightness. For enthusiasts, the X10 supports both Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos sound for the best cinema-like experience in your home.

TCL’s X8 is a 4K resolution QLED TV, featuring Quantum Dot display technology which also brings a wider colour gamut. Though it’s not quite the 8K resolution of the X10 it does also support Dolby Vision HDR imaging technology and Dolby Atmos immersive audio.

Finally, TCL will be bringing the Frame TV+ to Australia as well, a TV modelled on the same concept as Samsung’s Frame TV concept with an artistic take to the frame surrounding the panel.

Jason Carrick, TCL’s Australian National Sales Director said

TCL’s 2019 range will give Australians the opportunity to experience a new level of immersive and seamless entertainment. Our new models aim to enhance the experiences our customers crave, but also aim to prepare our customers for new developments in the market, such as the introduction of Google Assistant – which is yet to reach Aussie shores.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

8K TVs will make 4K TVs hit rock bottom prices.

Now, this could be good. Hopefully you can just speak to your TV and tell it what content to play, and it will automatically switch to the correct input and play it. No more fumbling with the remote control to switch between off-air and HDMI inputs.
