The company announced its strategy of vertical integration – transforming from TCL Multimedia to TCL Electronics. This means they are now capable of creating a wide variety of electronics – from fridges to headphones, and from speakers to air conditioning. TCL aims to be the top 3 TV by 2020 in Europe, and enter into the audio and air conditioning markets.

Upcoming TCL TVs will feature 20,000 mini-LEDs in 1,000 zones in a form-factor slimmer than 1cm thick.

The brand aims to accomplish this with its AIXIOT thrust – combining AI and IoT in a series of consumer products. This ecosystem will encompass Home, Life, Lodge and Park categories, which correspond to smart home solutions, lifestyle and everyday applications, and hospitality and workplace products.
