TCL will bring Oreo to all of its Android TVs this autumn

07 Sep 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

At IFA 2018, TCL confirmed that it will update its full line-up of Android TVs to version 8 Oreo. The rollout is expected to start in late September.

Oreo on TCL Android TVs

TCL officially signed on as an Android TV partner in late 2015 and launched its first European model with Android TV in 2016. In the US, TCL is mainly using Roku TV as its platform.

At IFA 2018, the company confirmed its update plans for Android 8 Oreo, which will introduce a completely revamped user interface. TCL said that Oreo will be available for all of its Android TV models.

- “Oreo will be available for all TCL Android TV from late September via auto download or manual,” Marek Maciejewski, Product Development Director, TCL Europe, confirmed to FlatpanelsHD.

As usual, the update will roll out gradually.




The company added that the new C76 range will come with Oreo pre-installed. The TV will be available in 55- and 65-inch sizes with a built-in JBL soundbar.

At IFA, Philips also confirmed that it will bring Oreo to its Android TVs from 2016 and onwards. Bang & Olufsen will not update its luxury TVs, while Sony has yet to make an official announcement regarding Oreo. We did not receive a comment from Hisense and smaller TV brands.

Previous software updates for Android TV have primarily focused on technical features and improvements but many owners continue to complain about sluggish performance. Oreo will introduce a big visual refresh with its new user interface so owners should start preparing for the change. Google has said that Android 9 Pie will include performance improvements for TVs with slow hardware.
