Having introduced Android 9-based 8K QLED TVs in India last year, TCL has now launched what it says is India’s first Android 11-based smart TV lineup. Designated only by a model number, the TCL P725 smart TV for India comes with a camera for video calls and, will be available in 4 sizes, including 43-inch, 50-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch. The company also launched the TCL Ocarina Smart AC series in India with support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. According to TCL, the AC comes with B.I.G Care & UVC Sterilization Pro that kills 98.66% of bacteria.

The 65-inch model will originally be available exclusively on Amazon for Rs. 89,990. The other models, which will also be available at brick-and-mortar retail outlets, are priced starting at Rs. 41,990. Here’s a full lowdown of the entire lineup:

- 50-inch at Rs. 56,990

Much like Xiaomi’s Mi TV lineup, which comes with both PatchWall as well as the stock Android TV interface, the TCL P725 will also offer its own Channel 3.0 custom launcher alongside the vanilla Android TV UI. All TVs in the lineup have access to the Google Play Store, which means users will be able to download more than 7,000 apps and games specifically tailored for the Android TV experience. That includes popular streaming services, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Videos, and Disney+ Hotstar. The TVs will also support Chromecast out-of-the-box.
