Samsung announced last week that their new 4K and 8K QLED TVs are already on sale with them producing some of the best visual experiences on the market. QLED uses the latest Quantum dot technology to produce a much brighter image with more intense colors than standard OLED TVs and also improves reliability as there is much less chance of recording defects on the panel.
Samsung continues to lead the way with these sharp screens, but the Korean company is about to face serious competition from a rival that produces QLED TVs at a much lower price.
Chinese technology company TCL has just announced its latest televisions, which now feature incredible QLED technology.
In its brilliant marketing material, TCL claims that its new screens "offer unparalleled color reproduction, which surpasses that of other LED or OLED models, so that consumers can experience rich and realistic images, regardless of whether the action takes place in the dark. or in the strong sun. "
The entry-level model, called the C715K, will hit the living rooms starting next month at prices starting at a reasonable £ 499 – this is considerably cheaper than the £ 799 Samsung entry-level QLED TV.

For that price, the C715K receives a Quantum Dot Display, HDR 10+, hands-free voice control and access to Android's smart features.
This built-in operating system offers a wide variety of entertainment through various applications available, such as Netflix. There is also built-in compatibility with Google Assistant, T-cast, Chromecast and Alexa.
If you want even more features, TCL is also launching its premium C815K series, which features a native 100Hz monitor – this means that this model is twice as fast as traditional 50Hz models, resulting in super smooth visuals.
The audio is also enhanced via Dolby Atmos and there is a high class sound system from ONKYO inside.
Owners will be treated to the front trigger speakers and a dedicated speaker at the rear of the TV, which TCL claims to offer immersive cinema-like sound.
