TCL’s 2023 lineup splits its TVs into lower-end S and higher-end Q series models.

The move means TCL is retiring its long-running R series in favor of the Q series, which highlights the use of QLED technology. The Q series consists of Q6, Q7, and QM8, with each higher number building on the preceding model.

The Q6 is the entry-level option and features a QLED panel with a “High Brightness” LED backlight system, though the company doesn’t specify a peak brightness for this model. It supports all major HDR formats, including Dolby Vision and HDR10+ and AMD FreeSync. It also incorporates a new Game Accelerator mode that can push the 60Hz panel to 120Hz for gaming by throttling down the TV’s 4K resolution.

The Q7 is directly comparable with the perennial favorite R6 TVs, which have consistently earned high scores in the lab. These TVs boast up to 1,000 nits of peak brightness, according to TCL, plus a 120Hz native panel refresh rate with a Game Accelerator mode able to push that up to 240Hz, along with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro. It’s also the first model to feature TCL’s new AIPQ Engine G3 image processor, which TCL says enabled the company to receive IMAX Enhanced certification for how it handles content.

The QM8 line is TCL’s flagship TV, boasting an LED backlight system with up to 2,300 dimming zones and a peak brightness of 2,000 nits. It also has a built-in subwoofer driver, and Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, along with a stand that lets users adjust the TV’s height to accommodate a soundbar.

On the lower end, TCL’s S3 series is the company’s 1080p budget line. While it isn’t 4K, it supports HDR10 and HLG content, and supports Bluetooth headphones. The S4 series is the 4K budget series, which adds Dolby Vision, auto low latency mode (ALLM), and DTS Virtual:X as well as increasing the resolution.
