During a presentation, the Polish branch of TCL broadcast a slideshow returning to the latest generations of consoles to highlight their technological evolution. The manufacturer mentions the PS5 Pro of a new Xbox Series capable of displaying an 8K resolution, which should also be the case with current models, and which would offer 2160p (the 4K) at 60 or 120fps.
TCL goes one step further and displays a forecast of these consoles for 2023 or even 2024, as reported by Maciej Zabłocki of PPE.pl (via Tom Henderson).
