Technological Innovation Making Chinese Consumer Electronics Shine in the World
The innovative capabilities of China’s consumer electronics have been demonstrated by numerous “world’s-first” consumer electronics products launched in recent years, such as the mobile phone with foldable flexible screen, the multi-screen TV, the 8K laser TV with a rollable screen, the 4K 240Hz curved gaming monitor and the 5G laptop.
TCL won three individual awards in this selection, showing its super strength in the display field. The eye-catching new product TCL 4K Mini LED TV C845 won the “Gold Award for New Generation Display Technology”. By fine-tuning the amount of light, mini-LED backlight technology can improve the black contrast that traditional LEDs are not good at and the powerful quantum dot technology can improve color richness, saturation and gamut to a higher level to bring exceptionally powerful and precise control of brilliantly bright and deeply dark areas of the image, delivering unparalleled depth and dimension. C845 has obtained the industry-leading IMAX Enhanced certification and is equipped with a series of core black technologies with high refresh rate and low latency for users to experience viewing with top sound quality and smooth games at home.
The TCL QD-Mini LED Smart Screen X11 won the “Award for Innovative Mini LED Display of the Year”. It adopts the QD-Mini LED display technology, which combines the advantages of LCD and OLED. It upgrades the traditional surface light source to a pixel-level point light source and presents higher brightness, color gamut and lifespan than OLED while achieving ultra-high contrast. So it is the real next-generation large-screen display technology. The TCL NXTPAPER 12 Pro, which won the “Award for Innovative Eye Protection Technology of the Year”, uses multi-layer eye protection paper-like display technology to retain natural colors, filter harmful blue light, and maintain excellent visual effects. In addition to excellent visual performance, NXTPAPER technology also enables users to enjoy a comfortable tactile experience when writing, drawing or taking notes on a paper-like screen.

The BOE ADS Pro black quartz screen, which adopts the world’s first ADS Pro with an image quality comparable to OLED, won the “Gold Award for Innovative Display Products of the Year”. The extreme high CR negative LC solution has been developed via big data to realize the industry’s highest CR of 1400→3450:1 in planar field (IPS and ADS), and its dynamic contrast ratio is higher than that of OLED. Low-reflection POL surface coatings, low-reflection BM materials, CF ITO thinning and other solutions have been adopted to achieve a reflectivity of 5.8→1.14%, lower than OLED’s 1.3%. 80% reduction in light leakage has been realized at large viewing angles, which is lower than the light leakage value of VA (with compensation film) by developing STW compensation POL material and compensation value design, and the measured data of color deviation and color fading at viewing angles are better than those of OLED and VA flagships. With perfect picture quality from all viewing angles, the visual effects of high-end LCD TVs are raised to a new level, bringing the ultimate shocking experience comparable to OLED TVs.
