Bangalore, August 8 2016: TCL has stood for many things in the past from Telephone Communication Ltd to True China Lion but on its Second Coming to India, has settled for The Creative Life -- exemplifying its deep presence in many consumer areas from phones and TVs to washing machines and air conditioners.
It has chosen to launch its TV business in India with four sets: two full HD ( but un connected) models in the D2900 series: 32 and 40 inch at Rs 13,990 and Rs 20,990 and. the TCL P1 Smart TV series with a 48 inch curved full HD TV for Rs 37,990 and the better-resolution, but smaller UHD at 43 inches for Rs 31,990. The smart TV sets have conveniently put their more interesting functions into an app .
There is no overlap between the India offerings of TCL and LeEco for a reason: They work closely in China and in fact TCL makes some of the sets for Le Eco and in turn uses its content. In this neck of the TV market too it seems, the upcoming festival season will see some compelling deals for customers.
An old Chinese benediction says : 'May you live in interesting times'. It seems this year that they have substituted ' disruptive' for 'interesting'
