The Thomson brand has just presented part of its new series of televisions for the year 2023. No less than 40 models of different sizes and display technologies are thus available or will be in the coming weeks before the arrival of other TVs with Mini-LED and OLED panels. In the meantime, here are all the details on the more affordable LED and QLED series.
Alongside the major brands known and recognized in the world of television, Thomson intends to defend its chances in an ultra-competitive market. For this, the brand sets up a line up covering the needs of users by offering devices benefiting from extensive experience in the field. Thus, it highlights the criteria of simplicity of use, financial accessibility and responsibility, particularly for the electrical consumption of devices. Concrete illustration: no 8K TV at Thomson. In addition, the brand relies on a particularly high repairability index and intends to offer financing solutions for the most modest people, including students, for example. Thomson guarantees its televisions for three years and the products are assembled in Europe.
All Thomson 2023 televisions come with a remote control that offers a few buttons for maximum simplicity, but above all that has a backlight system. Note that it is possible, for the oldest people or those who want an even simpler control accessory, to order on the brand’s website an optimized remote control containing enlarged and fewer keys. Thomson offers non-connected televisions and others under Android TV, thus addressing as wide an audience as possible, depending on their needs.
