March 11, 2021 GMT

HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 11, 2021--

TCL Electronics Holdings Ltd. (“TCL Electronics” or “Company”, 01070.HK) demonstrated industry-leading innovation leadership with the launch of its latest high-end product - TCL X12 8K Mini LED —Vidrian™ Mini-LED Smart Screen.

Representing the highest technical standard of the Mini LED display category, TCL X12 Vidrian™ Mini-LED Smart Screen is the world’s first Mini LED smart screen built on OD Zero technology, the world’s thinnest Mini LED smart screen, as well as carrying the highest number of LED chips.

Zero distance between the TV backlight and the screen (OD Zero technology) allows a TCL X12 Vidrian™ Mini-LED to carry 96,000 LED chips within a 9.9mm ultra-thin frame and makes it possible to achieve high-precision visual presentation with brightness up to 2000nits and contrast ratio of 10 million to 1. Compared to mainstream WOLED products, OD Zero Mini LED smart screens substantially lead in brightness, color gamut, resolution, burn-in, product life span and other technical dimensions with only one-third of the price.

As a pioneer of Mini LED displays, TCL Electronics introduced the category and achieved mass production of the world’s first Mini LED smart screen TCL X10 in 2019. Accounting for 90% of the Mini LED TV products sold worldwide in 2020, TCL Electronics has established itself as the dominant player in the Mini LED product category.

Smart screen as the hub of connected intelligent offerings

TCL Electronics is also focusing on applications of intelligent technologies among products and systems that connect with smart screens and with each other to create better user experience in a home setting. Through offerings such as Eagle Cloud Platform, self-developed Wi-Fi modules, and Octopus Cloud audio and video services, TCL Electronics is building intelligent applications for cross-screen interconnection, interoperability, and distribution.

In addition, the Company also launched the smart screen system UI5.0, which is based on the core design concept of “UI serves content, and interaction serves user experience”. It innovates in all aspects of UI design, system interaction, and scene functions to create a more immersive, and enjoyable full-scene ecosystem with smart screens as its hub.

UI 5.0 brings thousands of games to the screen from eight major cloud game platforms in China, while introducing services such as AI fitness, remote classrooms, kids’ content, and health management. TCL Electronics has partnered with Vivo to bundle smart screens with smartphones through UI 5.0, in which smart screens can show reminders about incoming calls and messages to Vivo users. When answering calls, UI 5.0 will automatically lower the volume of the smart screen.
