TCL cancels 50 & 65" versions of acclaimed P series

21 Aug 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

TCL has decided to cancel the 50 and 65-inch versions of the acclaimed P series LCD TVs with local dimming and Dolby Vision to focus on next year’s line-up. Only the 55-inch model will remain, the company told CNET.

”QLED” LCD TVs incoming?

TCL’s 2017 P series was about to become one of the best value-for-money TVs on the US market, mainly due to its 72 local dimming zones, support for Dolby Vision, Roku OS, and the low price point. The only problem was that it was limited to a 55-inch model. That limitation will remain.

Plans to release a smaller 50-inch version and the larger 65-inch version have been scrapped, the company told CNET.

- "We'll be shifting our focus from the remaining 2017 P-series models (50 and 65 inches) to the next-generation P-series portfolio featuring new, cutting-edge technology to further enhance the home entertainment experience," the company told CNET, while promising to later discuss "factors that led up to this decision".

As David Katzmaier, CNET’s TV reviewer, points out, TCL has together with Samsung and Hisense formed the ‘QLED Alliance’ so it appears likely that the company will focus more heavily on the quantum dot-enhanced LCD TVs in the future. TCL already sells its high-end X2 LCD series as “QLED”.

We may have to wait several months to find out what TCL is planning. The company is not expected to unveil new US models until CES 2018 in January. The 55-inch P series remains available for $650 dollars.
