As part of TCL’s strategy to dovetail its AI and IoT technologies across the smart home, the company reveals its newly announced 8K QLED X series and 8K Mini LED series will play their part in that plan.
Shown earlier at CES, the 8K Mini LED TV has now had an official announcement at IFA along with its non Mini LED siblings in the 8K QLED X series. There’s no clear indication which territories will see which models, though there’s a hint of a European showing. Like their 4K siblings, the X10, X81 and EC78, the 8K QLED X series and Mini LED series feature an Onkyo designed sound system and the TCL AI-IN platform.

TCL launches multi-category smart products at IFA 2019

New range of TVs, audio products and smartphones features artificial intelligence

New “AI x IoT” strategy for a smart life introduced, helping to diversify TCL’s business

Berlin, September 5, 2019 – TCL, one of the leading players in the global TV industry and a leading consumer electronics company, today launched a full suite of new innovations and smart products at IFA 2019 in Berlin. The product categories, which incorporate artificial intelligence (AI), range from TVs and audio products to smartphones.

At the same time, TCL outlined its new “AI x IoT” strategy, essentially one that moves on from dovetailing the two technologies to integrating them more deeply across the product range.

The product launch and new strategy form part of TCL’s broader plan to continuously push forward business diversification, in parallel to its core TV business. Ultimately, the company aims to become one of the world’s leading smart technology companies that helps customers globally live a smart and healthy life.

TCL is continually investing in research and technology to improve the overall customer experience and help them live a smart life,” said Kevin Wang, CEO of TCL Industrial Holdings. “To achieve this, we’re already putting our premium entertainment experience into peoples’ homes. We’re looking to further enhance that experience through the closer integration of AI and IoT.”

TV serves as a perfect gateway to an intelligent life. TCL offers ground-breaking technology to provide that gateway: 8K offers extremely high resolution; Mini LED provides ultra-high contrast and brightness; and QLED delivers richer colours. All of these are primary criteria for high image quality.

8K QLED X Series
