55P8 from TCL – Presentation of this Ultra HD 4K

TCL unveils a new model equipped with all the current expected sophistications, the 55P8.
Let’s have a look at the size. It’s a 55 inches.
We are looking at a very imposing television. You won’t move it every now and then.
Regarding technology, we are facing a model with a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  Attractive, user friendly, minimum bulk , quality image and sound, everything has been carefully finalized in this television, in order to make a nearly perfect product.
Has the TCL succeeded in the challenge of an efficient television set. This is what we are going to see just after .

55P8 from TCL – Design

The TCL 55P8 appears as a real masterstroke of the brand regarding both its interior and exterior design.
Nothing has changed in the design of this new model. TCL continues to ride the wave of its design to which we are now accustomed.
A product that is correct in view of its price. A sleek but effective design. It has the potential to compete with other TV sets on the market.
The 55P8 is quite standard, flat.
With a size of 55 inches, Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Equipped with a double base, TCL has chosen security. The TV holds well, nothing moves thanks to this system. And whatever the price of the 55P8, we prefer this kind of solution that guarantees that the television will not fall out of its place.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim design technology.
In short, the TCL has really succeeded the design aspect of this TV, which does not go unnoticed no matter where it is installed. If when turned off it has such an effect, the sensations take on a whole new dimension when the screen of the TCL 55P8 is revealed.

The screen of the TCL 55P8

The display of this 55P8 is handled with care. This will allow connoisseurs to enjoy a quality rendering in home theater mode. The colours are faithful and deep black.
With this new 55P8 TCL, the company makes an assumed technological choice. It’s LED and that’s good because the image result is excellent. 
This model has a Ultra HD 4K display. With a screen size of 55 inches, this 55P8 is positioned in the segment of large models. In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
With a frequency of 60 Hz, this makes this TV set better positioned than its competitors. A perfectly synchronized image that will delight you for your home cinema.
In addition, TCL has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality Ultra HD 4K image resolution.
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

The sound of the TCL 55P8

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers. The sound of the 55P8 still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two baffles and provides a sound power of 10 W.

The sound quality of this TV is average. Don’t push the volume too hard, you’d be disappointed.

The Intelligent aspect of the TCL 55P8

It has almost become a habit for TCL, this 55P8 has its operating system Android 9. You have the opportunity to explore the world of entertainment.
This TV’s Internet access is possible either via Wi-Fi or via a LAN local network and you have the possibility to download a wide variety of applications and movies.
This software environment innovates on the TCL 55P8 with a new feature: control the television set with voice. Indeed, thanks to the voice control function, it is possible to change channels, TV sources, turn the TV volume up or down just by talking to it. Isn’t that convenient?

Presentation of the connection technology of TCL 55P8

As for the connectivity aspect on TCL 55P8, it provides you with sufficient elements.
You will need to carefully choose the devices you want to connect to this 55P8. The reason? there are few choices in terms of available connectors.

This model has a total of 5 connections, not too bad. Apart from a few devices, you will not be able to connect many elements. Low choice compared to the competition.

You have the following connections at your disposal:
1 USB port, 3 HDMI ports, 1 audio output
