TVs are big news at CES 2024, and one of the biggest TVs to be found at this year’s show is the TCL QM891G, a 115-inch mini-LED model with 20,000 local dimming zones that is capable of 5,000 nits peak brightness, according to the company.

Some of the best TVs have come to include a 98-inch size option, and TCL says that the ultra-large TV category grew 600% for the company in 2023. With screen sizes starting to exceed 98 inches, mini-LED TVs are now providing a formidable alternative to the best 4K projectors, and one that's bright enough to easily be used for viewing in well-lit rooms.

Along with having a mini-LED backlight driven by 20,000 local dimming zones, the 115-inch TCL QM891G features a 120Hz QLED display panel (144 Hz with VRR) and an anti-glare screen coating. The IMAX Enhanced TV also features an ATSC 3.0 tuner to support Next-Gen TV broadcasts, and it has a built-in 6.2.2-channel Dolby Atmos speaker system with a subwoofer.

As attention-grabbing as the 115-inch QM8 may be, it’s only one of many TVs TCL has introduced at CES this year. The rest of the company's lineup, detailed below, consists of two mini-LED series and two QLED series. Notably, the new TVs are all 4K models as TCL did not announce any 8K TVs at the show.

2024 mini-LED TVs 

Along with the 115-inch QM891G, TCL’s mini-LED TV offerings for 2024 include the QM8 and QM7 series.

QM8 TVs will be available in screen sizes ranging from 75-98 inches. These models have a backlight with up to 5,000 local dimming zones and are specified for up to 5,000 nits peak brightness. They additionally feature a 120Hz QLED display panel (144 Hz with VRR) and an anti-glare screen coating. Other features include Dolby Vision IQ HDR, an ATSC 3.0 tuner, and a built-in 2.1.2-channel Dolby Atmos speaker system. TCL calls its design for the QM8 series “Full-view metal bezel-less,” and a height-adjustable pedestal stand is included with the 65- and 75-inch models.

2024 QLED TVs 

TCL’s regular QLED models for 2024 consist of two series, the Q6 and Q6 Pro.

Q6-Pro TVs will be available in 55-85-inch screen sizes and feature a full array local dimming backlight that the company says is 33% brighter than 2023’s top TCL QLED series. They also feature a 120Hz display panel (85-inch model only), a backlit remote with hands-free voice control, and a Full-view metal bezel-less design with adjustable width feet.

TCL’s Q6 TVs will be available in 43-98-inch screen sizes and feature an LED backlight that’s 28% brighter than last year’s models. These TVs feature a 120Hz display panel (85- and 98-inch models only), a Full-view metal bezel-less design, and DTS Virtual:X processing.

Along with its new mini-LED and QLED models, TCL will introduce several other series of budget 4K and regular HD TVs in 2024, including an S5 series with an 85-inch screen size option.
