TCL announces a new series of televisions in its catalog featuring Google TV, the interface that replaces Android TV. This range will offer different display technologies, QLED and mini-LED, as well as different screen definitions, 4K or 8K. TCL’s new Android TVs will arrive in the United States first before arriving in Europe.
The virtual doors of CES 2021 opened last night. And announcements of new electronic products have multiplied ever since. TCL, one of the big regulars at this show, naturally took the opportunity to present its line-up for the start of 2021. A line-up made up of home cinema, smartphones (for brands TCL and Alcatel), smart speakers, air purifiers and of course televisions. Remember that TCL is one of the world’s Top 3 brands of TV.

This year, TCL’s line-up in this area has an interesting functional novelty. The manufacturer decided to replace Android TV with Google TV. This follows the officialization of the Mountain View firm’s new television interface last September. An interface which is intended to be more fluid, more complete and more suitable than Android TV for use with a remote control. This new interface was inaugurated by Google with the very latest version of Chromecast.
Google TV at TCL in 8K, QLED and mini-LED
For anyone interested in Google TV, know that TCL plans to integrate the interface into a wide range of models. The brand announces that Google TV will host televisions as well 4K than 8K, with slabs QLED and mini LED. Note also that TCL announces at CES 2021 that its 2021 televisions will benefit from the third generation of mini-LED backlighting.
TCL is thus the second brand to announce the arrival of Google TV in its televisions in 2021. The first brand was Sony, which announced the transition to the new interface as of October 2020. It was whispered that Philips could follow this example. This is officially not yet the case. TCL therefore steals second place. TCL explains that Google TV will arrive with the 2021 harvest of its televisions, which will be first marketed in the United States, before arriving in other regions, including Europe.
