TCL C84: this new generation of Mini LED TVs will make an impression
The world number 2 hits hard and pushes the limits of Mini LED technology with its new C84 televisions: brightness reaches 2,000 nits, an 85-inch (215 cm) version is available and gamers benefit from a 240 Hz mode.
TCL is one of the pioneers of the Mini LED, even becoming the first manufacturer in the world in 2019 to democratize this technology with its C-Series range. Positive user feedback quickly prompted the company to develop innovative new features, such as the system From Zero introduced on the X92 and X92 Pro models in 2021 and whose purpose is to reduce the distance between the Mini LED backlight and the diffuser panel. This not only made it possible to limit the weight and thickness of television sets, but also enhanced their brightness.
With the C84 series, the manufacturer emphasizes color rendering and gaming while once again seeking to improve brightness. And as much to say it right away, this 2023 generation sets the bar very high!
A viewing experience that gets better every year
To guarantee a superior experience to that of previous years, which was not easy given the level reached, TCL had to push its limits.
The C84 series delivers amazing performance with brightness now reaching 2,000 nits, a level that wasn’t even possible a few years back. By integrating a QLED filter, TCL ensures colors that are both vibrant and natural for total immersion, while the new AiPQ 3.0 processor provides maximum control to enhance the rendering.
Unlike some competitors, TCL supports all HDR formats (HDR10, HLG, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, Dolby Vision IQ), so you get the same experience no matter what you’re watching or what platform you’re using. This means better contrast, detailed dark scenes, and even an image that adapts to the lighting conditions in your room when the program is compatible.
For the experience to be truly total, TCL is announcing four screen sizes this year: 55 inches (139 cm), 65 inches (165 cm), 75 inches (190 cm) and an impressive 85 inches (215 cm).
240 Hz: gamers are in for a treat!
TCL has always focused on gaming and this new generation is no exception. If you are a gamer and looking for a TV to tease the controller, the C84 series should absolutely fit in your short list.
This TV delivers a 4K UHD image at 144 Hz with support for HDMI 2.1 connectivity and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) functions which are responsible for adapting the frequency of the screen and to reduce latency to a minimum. It is also compatible with technology FreeSync Premium Pro and integrates the TCL system DLG (Dual Line Gate) which is aimed at the most demanding players. It bumps the refresh to a mind-boggling 240Hz – yes, you read that right! – Enough to exploit all the capabilities of your graphics card.
Finally, the Game Bar provides a fast and efficient interface to control the different features and options.
An uncompromising sound experience
The TCL C84 series is equipped with an Onkyo 2.1 sound system with built-in stereo speakers, as well as a subwoofer. So you won’t have to invest in an expensive audio system if you don’t want to. It also supports the excellent technology Dolby Atmos found in the most modern cinemas.

The interface under Google TV undoubtedly represents the best of today. The quad-core processor also delivers solid performance and ensures a smooth menu experience. The most popular streaming services are present (Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, Canal+), as well as thousands of apps for gaming, viewing media, listening to music, and more. TCL has also provided support for voice assistants Alexa et Google Assistant to control your smart home by voice.
