In case you haven't been paying attention, there have been some rather amazing deals on smart TVs recently. In particular, TCL Roku TVs have been available at incredibly low prices over the past few months. When we last visited TCL's 55-inch 55R6176 Series Roku TV, it was selling for a pretty hot (at the time) $579.99, which represented a $220 savings compared to the regular price. However, Electronic Express (via Rakuten) is selling the same TV for $549.99. While that is only a $30 additional savings over the last hot deal, there's more where that came from. If you apply the coupon code EE74 at checkout, Rakuten will take an additional $75 off the price of the television,... Read more...

Movie, TV, and gaming fans are often after the biggest screen they can cram into their living room or bedroom. The catch is that massive screen sizes are often very expensive.

Anyone who believed that TCL was only a maker of TVs could be forgiven, after all, the company does make a huge line of smart TVs with built-in Roku and other services, and many of them were on sale last month ahead of the Super Bowl. What you may not know is that TCL is into the smartphone arena as well and is a Chinese company that owns the Blackberry Mobile and Alcatel smartphone brands. Today, a new report has surfaced that claims that TCL is working on some very cool foldable display smartphones concepts, and one of the devices folds up like a smartwatch. Renderings of the devices have leaked, and an image of the device that transforms into a smartwatch that wraps around the user's wrist... Read more...

When it comes to smart televisions, TCL has carved out a nice chunk of the U.S. market for itself over the past few years.

Earlier this week, we brought you the latest news on Palm's rise from the dead thanks to certifications received from both the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Wi-Fi Alliance. Now, we're getting our first look at the device, which is a tiny little smartphone that clearly bucks the trend of today's ginormous-screen flagships. The phone was developed under the codename "Pepito" by TCL, and is destined to be a Verizon exclusive when it launches later this year. What's interesting is that it has a 3.3-inch display, which is even smaller than what was found on the original Apple iPhone (3.5 inches). However, the 720p display is a higher resolution than the revolutionary first-generation... Read more...
Earlier this year, we heard rumors that a Palm-branded smartphone would making its way to Americans in late 2018. TCL, which breathed new life into BlackBerry smartphones, is also the driving force behind this Palm resurrection, having purchased the rights to the brand back in 2015. Now, we're receiving more evidence that a smartphone launch is imminent. The PVG100 smartphone manufactured by the TCL subsidiary Palm Ventures Group has been certified by both the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). One of the interesting things gleaned from its Wi-Fi Certified Interoperability Certificate is that the device only supports the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi band, and not 5GHz. That's pretty... Read more...
When the first 4K TVs hit the market, their high price and dearth of worthwhile content made them a tough sell. But before long, 4K TVs became much more affordable, to the point today where there's little reason not to consider one if you're looking to upgrade. TCL's 55R617 unit is a perfect example of how the incredible value found in today's TVs. At $649.50 (as of the time of writing), this 55-inch television supports both HDR10 and DolbyHDR formats with the DCI-P3 color profile, so that you can enjoy current or remastered HDR-supported content with much richer color than typical sets can provide. One spec the set provides that's a little misleading is the 120Hz clear motion index,... Read more...
It seems that Verizon Wireless is going to sell a new Android phone made by Palm, a brand you probably have not heard referenced in quite some time. There are not many details to go on, other than the fact that TCL is working with Verizon to bring the Palm-branded handset to market, which could hold some nostalgic appeal. Whether TCL and Verizon play up that angle remains to be seen. While details of the actual handset are pretty much non-existent, Android Police says an unnamed "trusted source" indicated the Palm device will launch on Verizon sometime in the second half of this year. Verizon is a logical partner, both because it is the largest wireless carrier in the United States, and it was... Read more...
We have not heard a whole lot from BlackBerry lately, but if you're rooting for the Canadian smartphone maker, you'll be happy to know that it has not thrown in the towel. Just the opposite, it prepping the release of another smartphone with a physical QWERTY keyboard. Called the KEYone (previously known as Mercury), it will officially be on sale in Canada next month at Bell, Bell MTS, Rogers, SaskTel, and TELUS Business starting at $199 CAD on a two-year term, manufacturer TCL announced today. "After all the anticipation and positive response received from the BlackBerry community on the BlackBerry KEYone, it’s an honor to offer this all-new Android-powered BlackBerry smartphone to customers...

Up until now, if you wanted to enjoy Roku on your television, you needed to purchased a dedicated set-top box or HDMI dongle. Now you have two more options -- purchase a Hisense or or TLC smart television with built-in Roku support. This is a vision Roku first shared with the public back at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last January, and it's now come to fruition. "Just like our Roku players, Roku TV offers an exceptional streaming experience filled with endless entertainment choices. But we didn’t just stick a Roku player inside the TV. We enhanced the Roku operating system to power the entire TV experience," Roku CEO Anthony Wood explained in a blog post. "That means we’ve... Read more...
The revolution won't just be televised, it is a television. Or, more precisely, an emerging television standard. We've known for some time that 4K Ultra HD would be the next frontier in TV land, though high prices and lack of content are two hurdles that have kept the revolution at arm's length, ensuring that your swanky new Full HD 1080p television is still relevant. Eventually the industry will leap over both hurdles, and perhaps sooner than you think. Chinese manufacturer TCL (The Creative Live), supposedly the third largest TV brand in the world, just announced its fall product lineup for the U.S. Headlining the crop of incoming TV sets is a 50-inch edge-lit LED 4K Ultra HD TV launching in...
