As it tis the season to buy a new telly I offer this one up for scrutiny.

It's a 4K HDR 10-bit panel, running Android TV. It's a Chinese manufacturer so obviously going for budget here, having said that it is a 10 bit panel for well under a grand.

Also you will have to order this from Germany but as we are still in the customs union and it's from Amazon it makes things relatively straight forward. You can sign into Amazon.de with your UK Amazon account or even easier on your phone app change the county to Germany in the setting and it still provides everything in English.

It's on prime for €680 so your gonna have to factor in exchange rate and any card fees into this. But still a cheap 10 bit.

I'll let the TV aficionados on here pass their judgment. I always find their comments helpful.

Nice find. I've heard a lot of good things about the TCL P series on YouTube, didn't know they were available in Europe. Heat.

I've heard of the p607 but not the p6046 are they comparable? I was hoping TCL would become available here soon. Well spotted.

TCL get really good reviews in the US for being decent budget TVs. Its a shame they don't do them in the UK.

Great deal, thanks

Display Technology LCD ??

TCL? I've never heard that brand before.

Reviews are average.

The P607 Roku TV review is what put me into this originally. The major difference I can see is that the P607 supports Dolby Vision HDR and the the P6046 does not, which is a shame. Also P607 runs Roku TV smart platform and P6046 runs android TV. As far as I could find this is the European offering of the P607, but as for reasons mentions above they are not identical.

I believe it's LCD with LED backlighting, FALD.

They P series in the US gets great reviews for its price range. I asked TCL Europe questions before on Twitter but they were of no help whatsoever. Although they did say the tvs are similar.

I think theyre the 3rd biggest TV manufacturer in the world

More familiar here in the UK as Alcatel (they also make the current Blackberry phones). They're one of those big chinese companies that you haven't heard of but have seen their products.

It could well be duff information but it's listed as an 8 bit + FRC panel …It could well be duff information but it's listed as an 8 bit + FRC panel herehttps://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/2fbea7d


It doesn't matter, the direct lit local dimming backlight is the big attraction for HDR here. It's not as good as the XE90, but if this is the same as the P607 rtings reviewed then it's better than anything else at this price.

Appreciate the info. Thanks

Not sure whether to hold out and get a Dolby vision supported Tele. But the whole waiting thing, for the next wave, can go on and on.

Does it have freeview?

It might be a concern if you're buying EZ1002, but at this price and this early in HDR development it's too early to be worrying about those sorts of things.

This brand is not sold in the UK so almost certainly not. It does have a DVB-T2 tuner though so should receive all of the Freeview channels.

Yeah, at this time of year they're near their minimum price and not out of stock. They'll go slightly cheaper when discontinued in a few months in favour of the 2018 revisions but availability is much patchier.
