TCL makes relatively interesting affordable tablets. They have prepared several new models for the CES 2021 trade fair. However, he overshadowed all the tablets TCL NXTPAPER, which is a very interesting device. It is a tablet with a “paper” display that uses the NXTPAPER technology of the same name. We first saw this last year as a possible competitor of electronic ink. How is it different?
TCL tablets with a “paper” display will soon appear in Europe
The display of this tablet is completely different from the LCD or OLED displays in other tablets. NXTPAPER technology as well as e-ink does not generate any light, which greatly reduces energy consumption and also greatly relieves the eyes. TCL claims that it needs 65 percent less power than an LCD display. It offers several advantages over e-ink displays – first and foremost higher refresh ratewhich, according to the manufacturer, is enough for smooth video playback. It also offers 25 percent higher contrast. It will also please quite large ones resolution 1440 x 1080 pixels and color support. These things are rare in e-ink displays. The size of the display itself is 8.88 inches.

Unfortunately, we haven’t seen the tablet in action yet, except for a short performance during the performance itself. Fortunately, he won’t have to wait long. It should go on sale in April 2021 in several parts of the world, including Europe. The price will be 349 euros, in terms of approx CZK 9,100.
The remaining parameters of this tablet are no longer special and fall into the lower middle class. The performance is provided by the MediaTek Helio MT8768 chipset, which complements 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which can be expanded with microSD cards. The battery has a capacity of 5500 mAh and there is no lack of USB-C, 3.5 mm audio connector or LTE support. It will run straight out of the box on Android 10.
