TCL announces MoVo UD Google TV with 4K definition
TCL has announced its newest HDTV that is first of its kind. The TCL MoVo UD set will be the very first to offer 4K by 2K definition along with Google TV integration. It also is the first Google TV device set to receive Android 4.2.2, which was announced yesterday at Google IO.
The unit is very similar to LG’s Google TVs. In fact, the software looks and feels a bit like LG’s too. But TCL has created its UI and given the Google TV device its own customizations. Of course, you will also get all of the latest features from Google TV, though. This includes the Quick Guide, Voice Search, the new Chrome and more.
We saw TCL’s Google TV offering at CES, but the strategy was quite different. They had a separate set-top box running Google TV on a 4K screen. Putting Google TV in the 4K by 2K TV definitely sets it apart from the competition, though. We already have a good selection of set-top Google TVs. But 4K definition? That’s a whole other deal.
There is no mention on price, but the unit is said to be available “later this year”. We have the feeling it won’t be cheap, though. 4K TVs cost a pretty penny, even if they come from companies like TCL, which is not best known for quality. But what do you guys think – what price would entice you to purchase this TV?
