Sober but in line with current trends. TCL has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
The design of the TCL 49S305 is largely inspired by the other models in the S305 series.

The TCL 49S305 is rather flat.
With its glass surface of 49 inches, Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed it has a double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.
A noteworthy innovation for this model is the use of the Slim design technology.
A mid-range television set that relies heavily on its design and the quality of its materials; arguments that TCL has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.
