You can find all the details about TCL's 2021 TV lineup here. For those who are unfamiliar with Google TV, it's an evolution of Android TV that brings together movies, shows and live TV and organizes them all based on your personal preferences. This was driven mostly by the popularity of its affordable but dependable Roku TVs, although the company also unveiled Android TVs for the US market a year ago.
TCL had also held an earlier global press event where it espoused its overarching AIXIoT "connection, display, interaction" strategy to "encourage adoption of intelligent lifestyles" with the TV as the hub at the center, said Tiago Abreu, head of TCL's X-Lab Industrial Design Center.
