TCL have unveiled their new range at CES this morning, introducing their advancements on display tech with NXTPaper 3.0 and introducing their new TCL 50 series smartphones, new tablets and an update on their Augmented Reality glasses. 

NXTPaper 3.0

The TCL NXTPaper display technology has been updated to version 3.0 this year. While all the same great features have been kept, TCL says the new NXTPaper 3.0 displays ‘creates a visual experience close to reading books in natural light’. TCL says they’ve also integrated DC Dimming technology to ensure a flicker free experience, reducing eye strain. 

TCL also include an ‘Eye Care Assistant’ as part of the NXTPaper 3.0 launch. The assistant will remind you to take breaks to rest your eyes, or change lighting conditions if needed.


NXTPaper 14 Pro 

The NXTPaper 14 Pro is the first tablet to utilise the NXTPaper 3.0 technology and comes with a 14-inch 2.8K (2880×1800) resolution display. 

Internally the NXTPaper 14 Pro will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 8020 processor with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of on-board storage. The tablet will include a 12000mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging

The tablet will include helpful features for fully utilising the NXTPaper 3.0 display, including the VersaView UI which offers a black and white user interface to help more with using it as an e-reader.

TCL Tab 10

Also gaining the benefits of the NXTPaper 3.0 screen technology, the TCL Tab 10 includes 5G connectivity and a 10.4″ 2K resolution display. 

The TCL Tab 10 will be powered by an octa-core processor, with 4GB RAM & either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage (microSD card support as well) – though we’ll have to wait for local availability details to know which will arrive here.

The TCL 10 includes a large 6,000mAh battery to keep you going all day.


TCL 50

Of course TCL are updating their phone line, with the new TCL 50 series announced, comprising seven devices in total. 

The phones will first be heading to the US, where TCL has announced the specs for three of the devices, the TCL 50 XL 5G, TCL 50 XE 5G and TCL 50 LE.

The TCL 50 XL 5G will come with a large 6.8” FHD+ resolution display with up to 120Hz refresh rate. Details on the rest of the specs are scant, however TCL has confirmed the phone includes 8GB RAM and a 5010mAh battery, and comes with DTS audio.

The TCL 50 XE 5G comes with a slightly smaller 6.6” HD+ resolution display with 90Hz refresh rate,  and dual speakers. There’s a large 50MP “triple” camera – though no other sensors are listed, and also comes with 8GB of RAM and 5010mAh battery. 

Lastly, the TCL 50 LE also comes with a 6.6” HD+ resolution display with 90Hz refresh rate, though TCL have opted for a 13MP hybrid camera on this model. TCL have listed the phone with a 4,000mAh battery, with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
