Equipped with a powerful dual-core CPU and a quad-core GPU, TCL Game TV series comprises six models with panels sized from 40 inches to 65 inches. The series pioneered an application of 3M picture quality enhancement that realized over 138% 4K quality enhancement, bringing users ultra-high-speed game experiences on ultra high-definition large-size display screens.

When connected to the Internet, TCL Game TVs allow many users with different devices in different locations to play the same game on the same local area network, pushing the boundaries imposed by localized game consoles. Users can play and save games on their small screen and will then be able to access archived games on the TV and continue playing.

Gameloft, as a major content provider, will provide major games such as Modern Combat 4 and Advance GT2 for exclusive release on TCL game products. JD.com, an ecommerce site that recently formed a strategic alliance with Chinese internet giant Tencent, will be the exclusive sales channel.

Mr. Alix Cloux, the Director of Gameloft (China) said, "Gameloft picked TCL because we see TCL's leadership strength as the No.1 TV brand in China, as well as its market position and rich user base in the smart TV industry. In the future, Gameloft will provide more blockbuster games for global debuts on TCL game products and continue to exclusively bring surprises to users of TCL game products."

Mr. Hao Yi, the Chief Executive Officer of TCL Multimedia, said, "On the heels of huge successes of cross-industry products such as TCL iQiyi, TCL Multimedia sees extending its foothold in the game industry an important direction to transform towards Internet and entertainment orientations. The launch of this game hardware product series is also an important move under TCL Multimedia's 'Double+ Strategy'. We strive to create a new business growth driver for TCL through the penetration in the game industry, exploring the blue oceans of the game entertainment market. We are confident about staying on the cutting edge of cross-industry innovations with a goal to groom TCL Multimedia into a global multimedia entertainment technology company."
