The TCL P725 will be the first TV to run on Android 11 in India. It still isn't clear whether the TV will bring the new Google TV UI. TCL announced its Android 11 TVs at CES 2021.
The TCL P725, the successor to 2020’s TCL P715, will launch today at 11 AM via a live stream online. This will be the first TV to run on Android TV 11 to launch in India. TCL first announced the P725 at CES 2021 along with other TCL TVs such as the C825 and C725.
TCL will broadcast the launch of the P725 live online. Those interested can watch the live broadcast here. In addition to the P725, the company will also showcase its smart AC. TCL has been teasing the launch of the P725 on Twitter for some time now. You can learn more about the TV here. You can also watch the event below.
The TCL P725 is a 4K TV with support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The TV does not have QLED backlighting like its higher-end siblings but supports hands-free commands. It is an LED-backlit LCD TV with support for all popular streaming services. The TV will run on Android TV 11 out of the box, but it isn't clear whether the TV will have the new Google TV UI.
TCL also launched a bunch of TVs running on Android 11 at CES 2021, and it isn't clear if these TVs will launch in India as well today. At CES 2021, TCL showed off the C825 which is TCL’s second-generation mini-LED TV. It also announced the TCL C725, the successor to the TCL C715 we reviewed in 2020.
Android 11 is the newest version of Android TV. It was launched back in September 2020. We are yet to see Android TVs in India get Android 11. The TCL P725 will be the first TV in India to launch with Android 11. The Mi QLED TV 4K (review) was the first TV to launch with Android 10.
The TV manufacturer needs to release the update for the TV. If your TV manufacturer has released the update, then you should be able to check for the update by going into the settings of the TV, just like you would on an Android smartphone.
