TCL to launch a 50-inch 4K TV, priced under $1,000
TCL, China’s leading TV manufacturer, is about to change the way we perceive 4K TVs (as very expensive piece of display technology) as they unveil the 7E51040 Ultra-HD; a 50-inch 4K TV which will only set you back USD999 a pop.
Ultra-HD (UHD) TVs or commonly known as 4K TVs are great. I mean who wouldn’t want a pixel-packed TV inside their living room. However, its premium price tag is well above the average consumer’s budget, prohibiting such devices to gain popularity in the market.
To give you a better idea on how inexpensive TCL’s new brainchild is, we’ve compiled some of the 4K TVs/monitors we’ve covered in the past with its respective SRP:
As you can see, the TCL 7E51040’s price is well-below than any of the candidates above, placing it in a better position to slug it out with the top names in the business.
Of course, having a significant price drop will almost ultimately mean that there were sacrifices made; be it in the design or configuration. And while we can’t say much about its design because we haven’t had the chance to see the TV yet, we already noticed some corners that TCL had to cut to keep the price within the three-digit mark. The drawbacks include the lack of some of the standard ports found on a modern TV like DVI, HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort.
Nevertheless, it just doesn’t get any better than a USD999 50-inch 4K TV, right?
