TCL Mobile has quietly built its mobile offerings into quite the powerhouses. They have made some very impressive phones and tablets in the past few years, and this year they’re expanding with carrier-specific phones, big leaps forward in the world of tablets, and even jumping into the laptop world!
TCL 30 XE 5G and TCL 30 V 5G
On the TCL Mobile smartphone front, there are the new TCL 30 XE 5G and the TCL 30 V 5G.
The TCL 30 XE 5G launches first on T-Mobile in the next few weeks, and then it will be available to other carriers. It will feature long battery life and a screen with a 90Hz refresh rate plus NXTVISION for excellent viewing on the go.
UPDATE 02/22/22: Today, TCL announced the TCL 30 XE 5G, TCL’s first 5G smartphone on T-Mobile ($198.00) and Metro by T-Mobile ($199.99), will be available in the U.S. for under $200 on Friday, Feb. 25. Full features include:
Refreshingly vibrant visuals: A captivating 6.52” HD+ display with an exceptionally smooth 90Hz refresh rate, powered by NXTVISION technology, providing enhanced true color clarity and blue light protection.
Accessible 5G for everyone: TCL’s first 5G smartphone on T-Mobile’s network brings fast, affordable, and reliable 5G speeds.
Seamless user experience: Multitask and quickly switch between apps with the 2.2Ghz Octa-core processor for a sublimely smooth experience.
Power when it matters: Equipped with TCL Smart Manager, the 4500mAh battery is designed to last from morning to night, with extended battery life and customized notifications.
Create detailed memories: The versatile, 13MP triple rear camera captures stunning images, striking portraits, and high-definition videos in any situation.
TCL 30 V 5G will have a triple camera on the back, including a 50-megapixel primary camera; it will also have a 6.7″ screen with TCL’s excellent NXTVISION, so everything will look amazing from reading to Netflix to gaming.
Pricing and specific availability are coming soon, but given TCL Mobile’s track record, it’s safe to expect fantastic quality at an affordable price!
If looking at a screen all day does a number on your eyes, you’re not alone. But TCL Mobile recognizes that the need to check email, read, and keep connected doesn’t stop even if you’re tired of staring at bright screens all day.
The TCL NXTPAPER 10S is a tablet that’s unlike any other; it uses a 10-layer paper-style screen with blue light protection built right into it. This means you can read and interact with it as though it’s paper, but it’s actually a full-color tablet! You can also take notes using TCL’s T-Pen, and with an 8,000mAh battery, it won’t die on you midway through watching “Nailed It.”
The TCL NXTPAPER 10S comes to Europe and China first, starting at $249.
Are you looking for a solid Android tablet on a budget? TCL has you covered with the TCL Tab 8 4G and the TCL Tab 10L.
The TCL Tab 8 4G has built-in LTE so that you can stay connected on the go with a lightweight but affordable tablet; it should be available in select markets starting at $99 later this year.
If you’re looking for a bigger screen, maybe for reading textbooks or articles, the TCL Tab 10L offers a roomy 10.1″ HD screen starting at $129; it will be available starting in Europe later this quarter.
One of the most challenging parental balancing acts is managing kids’ exposure and access to tablets and technology. It’s inevitable, but you do have to consider their developing eyes, not to mention that anything for children needs to be more rugged than average.
The TCL TKEE series offers bumper cases, a TKEE pen so kids can practice their writing and drawing skills, and a kid-friendly user interface, plus eye-safe technology to prevent eyestrain.
TKEE will come in Mini ($89), Mid ($149), and Max ($119) later this year.
TCL is also going to offer a subscription service called TCL Kids via the Google Play Store that will bring the TKEE interface experience to other TCL tablets, as well as videos, books, and kid-friendly games, starting at $3.99 a month.
TCL Book 14 Go
It’s not all tablets and phones, though. TCL Mobile is also expanding into the laptop world with the TCL Book 14 Go, a Windows 11 laptop with a 14.1″ screen, 4G LTE in addition to Wi-Fi, and up to 12 hours of battery life.
The TCL Book 14 Go is specifically aimed at students and people on the go, and it comes in at a highly travel-friendly 1.3kg (2.8 pounds) and a very wallet-friendly $349.
We’re all still expecting smart glasses to be a significant part of our future, and TCL does too with the NXTWEAR AIR.
TCL Mobile puts dual 1080p micro OLED screens right before your eyes, which creates the visual illusion of watching something the size of a movie screen. You can use them for everything from working on sensitive materials to watching a movie, all with either dual speakers or via headphones for extra privacy.
The TCL NXTWEAR AIR utilizes a USB-C connection and is a featherweight 75g (about 0.16 pounds). They’re stylish enough that people might wonder why you’re wearing sunglasses indoors, but they won’t know you’re secretly watching a movie! Stay tuned for specifics on pricing and availability soon!
