TCL Unveils New 85-Inch TVs, Including HDMI 2.1, 4K And 120Hz Options
Budget TV maker TCL has a new XL collection of TVs, including a model with HDMI 2.1 and another with an 8K resolution.
With the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X last year, new TVs have been on the minds of many. There are already some great options to choose from, but TCL has just added three more to consider. At CES 2021, the company revealed a new XL Collection, which is comprised of three 85-inch TVs. If you're looking for a huge TV for your movies and games, then this collection is one you'll want to check out.
The first is a more affordable 4-Series model with a 4K display that costs $1,600. The second is a QLED model that features Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, and HDMI 2.1, the latter of which is used for variable refresh rates and 4K with 120Hz in gaming. Finally, the third model boasts an 8K resolution and TCL's own mini-LED technology. The 8K TV features 120Hz for 8K and 60Hz, though it's unclear if it can also display at 4K and 120Hz. The 4-Series model is planned to release before the end of March, while no price or timing has been revealed for the other two televisions. They will arrive after the 4-Series, but that's all we know at this time.
If you're looking for a new TV with HDMI 2.1 for gaming, then the mid-tier QLED model is the way to go. The PS5 and Xbox Series X are capable of 4K and 120Hz, and the games that push the refresh rate to these heights look great on a big screen--games like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition offer crisp and very smooth visuals. 8K TVs are appealing for their high resolution, but there is a very limited selection of 8K content available at this time.
