TCL showcases cutting-edge screens at Display Week, including 57-inch 8K high-refresh monitor

TechSpot is celebrating its 25th anniversary. TechSpot means technical analysis and advice you can trust.

TCL CSOT’s SID Display Week 2023 exhibits included six displays that attempted to push the boundaries of screen technology in different areas. These include two large 8K high-refresh rate displays, two high-end VR displays, a new flexible OLED, and a sizable automotive panel. A new screen from the company combines several cutting-edge technologies: a 65-inch 8K 120Hz foldable OLED display. Based on indium gallium zinc oxide thin film transistors and inkjet printing technology, the company claims it is the industry’s largest foldable OLED. The ultra-thin screen can push 33 million pixels per frame, bend to below R25mm, and have a bending life of 100,000 times. Another flexible OLED showcased by the company is the first ultra-narrow screen in this category and the first low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) ultra-narrow flexible AMOLED. The mobile device display adopts a 0.9mm array panel frame on four sides, a 1.6mm module frame on four sides, a 0.3mm O-cut array frame and a 0.36mm module frame. The high touch report rate screen supports a variable refresh rate between 1H and 240Hz for efficient power consumption, 1,920Hz PWM dimming technology and C7 organic emitter for more realistic colors. Another giant 8K monitor from TCL is the 57-inch 240Hz Ultrawide Curved Monitor. Curved to 1,000R, the monitor offers users a 32:9 aspect ratio and 7,680 x 2,160 screen resolution. Technically, this only brings the horizontal resolution to 8K, for a total pixel count of half that of true 8K. The esports-ready product is very similar to the Odyssey Neo G9 that Samsung launched in January. That display is also 57 inches, 8K, 32:9, and 240Hz, with the same pixel resolution as TCL’s rivals. Neither panel has a confirmed price, but Samsung’s 49-inch panel costs $2,500, so expect to pay at least that much. Additionally, the company showcased two high-end VR displays. Both try to eliminate the screen door effect with a display density of 1,512 pixels per inch, which TCL says is the highest of any mass-produced device in the world. One is a Mini LED with RGB 2,280 x 2,280 resolution (presumably per eye, but TCL didn’t specify that), supporting 120Hz and a 100,000:1 contrast ratio. The other is an LTPO realRGB LCD with 4K resolution for both eyes (possibly a combo). A 47.5-inch ultra-wide curved column-to-column display for vehicle instrument clusters also joined TCL’s exhibits. The entire 1.4-meter (55-inch) length of the 4,200R 8K screen is touch-sensitive and can be operated by the driver and co-pilot simultaneously. The Mini LED backlight offers over 3,000 local dimming zones.
