TCL 40 Series Phones, New NXTPAPER Tablets, and More Show TCL’s Mobile Commitment

TCL has been on a mission to get mobile devices with amazing screens into everyone’s hands. They’re pushing that agenda to the next level with their MWC 2023 release slate of several new TCL 40 series phones as well as updated TCL NXTPAPER and Tab slates. On top of that, there are headphones to keep you connected and entertained on the go. Read on to check it all out!

TCL 40 Series Phones

The Android phone market is crowded, but TCL is determined to carve out its own niche.; to that end, they’re consistently making quality phones with impressive screens that won’t break your budget, and their new 40 series is raising the bar even higher.

TCL 40 Series

There are three phones in the 40 series, the TCL 40 XE 5G, the TCL 40 X 5G, and the TCL 40 XL.

TCL 40 Series Phones

TCL 40 XE will sport a 6.56″ HD+ screen powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor and comes in at a very budget-friendly $169.

Meanwhile, if you’re concerned about snapping photos on the go, the TCL X 5G will include a 50MP AI camera array starting at $199.

And if you’re the “I need the biggest screen possible” type, the TCL 40 XL will sport a 6.75″ screen and an Helio G37 octa-core processor under the hood starting at $149.

The TCL 40 XL will launch this May, with the 40 XE and X arriving in June.

In addition, TCL 40 X and XE will benefit from TCL’s new NXTURBO display, which boosts GPU performance while improving battery life, coming to more phones later this year.



If you’re in the mood for a tablet, TCL has you covered with a few options. TCL NXTPAPER 2.0 has hardware-level filtering to make the blue light filter even more effective for better eye health;  it will also sport an automatic light sensor to adjust the color temperature based on the lighting.

The NXTPAPER 11 will be able to take advantage of the 2.0 screen technology, with an 11″ 2k display, an 8-megapixel front camera for video calling, and an optional T-pen that makes writing notes even smoother.

Best of all, it sports a massive 8,000mAh battery with reverse charging, so your tablet can keep your phone going while you work.

TCL NXTPAPER 11 will start at $249 in May in Europe before coming to other countries later this year.

TCL didn’t forget about regular tablets, either! Take a look at the new TCL Tab 11 — it sports an 11″ NXTVISION screen with quad speakers and an option for LTE if you’re tableting on the run. It won’t weigh you down at just over one pound, but it will keep you entertained!

The WiFi-only version will start at $179, while the LTE version will start at $209 this May.



Finally, all these devices need headphones. No one wants to eavesdrop on your Zoom call in Starbucks — or maybe people do, but you probably don’t want them listening.

Either way, you need headphones, so TCL has the new MOVEAUDIO Neo earphones with dual-mic noise cancellation as well as active noise cancellation so you can focus on your calls and not on why someone bothered to order a coffee if they’re drowning it in 6 pumps of caramel.

The TCL MOVEAUDIO Neo will start at $49.99.
