At CES, TCL teased its 2022 TV line-up for Europe with features like miniLED zone dimming, 144Hz, VRR, and Google TV. The line-up will include new models such as C935, C835, C735, C635 and P735.
TCL Europe's 2022 TVs
TCL will continue to have separate line-ups for North America and Europe in 2022. In Europe, consumers can expect to see new C- and P-series models but TCL said that the full line-up has not been finalized. We are sharing what we know so far.
TCL's high-end C935 will feature a VA LCD panel with miniLED backlight and "thousands of Full Array local dimming zones". It will also have a low-reflection coating and be powered by TCL's AiPQ video engine.
In addition, C935 features HDMI 2.1 ports with VRR and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro for gaming as well as multi-HDR support (HDR10, HDR10+, HLG, Dolby Vision IQ) for movie watching and gaming.

TCL's C835 (miniLED zone dimming) and C735 models are the successors to last year's C825 and C725. From C735 and up you get the 144Hz LCD panel that TCL announced as one of its main new features for 2022. 4K 144Hz signals can be supported over HDMI 2.1.
These are Google TVs that come with Android 11 pre-installed. With Google TV users get access to popular streaming apps like Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, Disney+, HBO Max and Netflix. Google TV has built-in Chromecast and Google Assistant.

TCL will also launch new affordable mid-range Google TVs with the C635, P735 and P635 models. Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos will be supported from P735 and up.
TCL informed FlatpanelsHD that it no longer has plans to launch QD-OLED TVs based on Samsung Display's panel. The company's display panel division, CSoT, is developing its own inkjet-printed OLED panel type.
More details including sizes will be announced at a launch event in Europe later this year.
