At the 2022 IFA (the European version of CES held in Berlin, Germany, TCL displayed its latest XL QLED TV Collection designated for the European market.
The new TCL XL QLED TV Collection includes models with screen sizes over 75-inches. TCL states that XL Collection TVs will fit many budgets and exceed expectations for home entertainment. The larger screen sizes of the XL Collection are designed to deliver more impactful, more immersive, and more engaging visual experiences.
Tip: TCL TV Global and European Model numbers include the letter “C” while U.S. model numbers include “R” or “S” depending model series.
The largest set in the XL Collection is the 98C735. Core features include a 98-inch diagonal screen, Google TV OS smart platform supported by QLED display technology for an extended wide color gamut, and 4K UHD resolution.
TCL claims that if you sit about 3 meters (a little less than 9 feet) from the C735’s screen, you will able to experience the same 60-degree field of view as watching a 30-meter size screen from the middle row and center seats at a movie theater.
A similar 98-inch model was first introduced in the North American market earlier this year. What is interesting is that the US and North American markets usually don’t get new models first and sometimes are left out entirely by some brands. That being said, it is nice to see Europe and other markets catch up in this area for a change.

In addition to the 98C735, TCL also offers the same TV with a 75-inch screen in the XL Collection, the 75C735.
