TCL Offers New 98-inch S Class 4K TV at a Nice Price

TCL just unveiled an advanced New XXL TV with killer features at a killer price.

TCL 98-inch TV

Earlier this year, TCL unveiled an impressive line-up of smart LED/LCD TVs, sized from 32 inches all the way up to 98 inches. Priced from around $150 to just under $10,000, the line offered something for practically everyone. Today the company expanded that line-up by one: and it’s a big one. The new 98″ 98S550G Smart S Class TV offers advanced technology such as a native 120 Hz panel, 4K resolution, wide color gamut, and HDR Ultra Processing with Dolby Vision IQ. The set includes the latest version of TCL’s AIPQ Engine Gen3 video processor for optimal image quality from multiple sources. And it does all this with a remarkably affordable list price: $4999.99.

UPDATE: The new 98-inch S550G TV is on sale on Amazon for $3999.99.

With the addition of this giant TV, TCL now offers three 98″ sets that should make virtually any movie fan, gamer or sports lover happy. The 98-inch trio includes the 98R754 QLED model, first introduced in 2022 (but still current), the new 98S550G and the flagship 2023 Q Series model, the 98QM850G. With the introduction of this new S Series model, the older 98R754 model went on sale on Amazon for a ridiculously low $3999.99. A TCL rep told us this new S Class model may be seeing a significant promotional discount as well.

“TCL is about to change the way people look at big screens. The magic of our engineering is providing a high-quality, super large TV with this level of cutting-edge technology, and still achieving price points the industry has never seen before. In fact, to celebrate this year’s NFL kickoff, TCL will be promoting an unbelievable deal for this model very soon,” said Scott Ramirez, TCL’s Vice President, Product Marketing and Development.

Ramirez continued, “The 98-inch S5 has a native 120Hz Refresh Rate with Motion Rate 480 for pristine clarity, Wide Color Gamut and High Brightness LED Backlight for a dynamic picture with high color volume, Game Accelerator 240 for blistering fast next-level gaming, and a FullView metal bezel-less design so it looks great in your home. Versus an 85” TV, you only need an additional three inches on the top and bottom, and six inches more space on the left and right to fit TCL’s latest 98-inch set on your wall.”
