TCL CSOT, a company that specializes in TV screens, has unveiled its first automotive display at the Society for Information Display event in Los Angeles. The display is a massive 47 inches, making it the largest automotive display on the market. While Mercedes-Benz offers a 56-inch display in its EQS and EQE models, this is actually made up of three separate displays. TCL’s display, on the other hand, is a single, continuous panel.
TCL unveils largest automotive display
This behemoth automotive display is 1.4 meters wide and runs from one side of the vehicle to the other. It comes with in-cell touch sensing and responds to multiple inputs, allowing both the driver and passenger to operate it at the same time.

Likewise, the automotive display is curved to fit the shape of the vehicle. It has a radius of 4,200R and features an integrated instrument cluster with no borders. It also has a control center and infotainment system.
Not to forget, this is a mini-LED screen with 3,000 local dimming zones, a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, and a native 8K resolution. This makes it the highest-resolution screen in the automobile industry.
The TCL automotive display is also a cost-effective option for automakers. The single, simple-to-install assembly makes it a more affordable option than many screens. But there is one potential drawback to the TCL display: redundancy. When automakers replace the instrument cluster with an integrated screen, there is a risk that the screen could malfunction. This is a concern that has been raised by some experts. And recent evidence of it is the recall of VinFast vehicles in the United States due to a blank screen.
TCL CSOT has not yet announced any automakers that have committed to installing the display in their vehicles. However, the company is confident that the display will be a popular choice for automakers due to its large size, high resolution, and advanced features.
