TCL today announced that its new 6-Series Roku TVs will be available for purchase in the United States by May 1st. The new TVs were first announced earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018. This lineup of affordable 4K TVs has been anticipated for quite some time now so it’s good that potential customers finally know when they will be able to pick one up.
The 6-Series TVs take the baton from TCL’s impressive P-Series of affordable TVs that were praised for brightness and contrast. However, the P-Series was only available in 55 inches whereas the new TVs are available in both 55 and 65 inch sizes.
While it’s unclear how much the 65 inch model is going to cost, TCL is reportedly going to charge $650 for the 55 inch 6-Series TV, which is the same price point as its predecessor. TCL says that the new TVs will deliver an exceptional viewing experience with a new design aesthetic that introduces a brushed metal finish. The TVs also feature Dolby Vision HDR for vibrant wide color.
The TVs also feature improved control over backlighting compared to the predecessor which should result in deeper blacks. Both models ship with the Roku TV voice remote and feature 802.11ac Wi-Fi, three HDMI ports, and Ethernet.
TCL says that its new 6-Series will be available by May 1. It will provide more information about availability before then.
