TCL are one of the few companies that are still doing tablets and it is the NXTPAPER range that is by far the most interesting.
The NXTPAPER display is a paper-like display, and coloured E-Ink allows you to get the viewing comfort of a book with the convenience of a tablet. It uses a transflective display, and light polymerization technology provides you with natural light without harshness.
Earlier in the year, TCL announced the NXTPAPER 10s which is due to go on sale soon and should be priced at under £250. TCL is now following this up with the TCL NXTPAPER MAX which will come in a Wi-Fi or 4G LTE configuration.
At the time of writing, not much else is known about the specs,but the 10s already has a 10-inch display, so I’d hope the Max 10 improves the specs elsewhere. The 10s uses a low-end Mediatek MT6762 which should be perfectly good for reading but not great for anything very intensive.
The NXTPAPER MAX 10 goes on sale starting in Asia from mid Q2 2022 and will be available from €269.
TCL are then also launching two affordable TAB laptops. The TCL TAB 10 HD 4G is available now in various European countries starting at €179 with additional FHD version on sale starting in Asia from late March at €199. The TCL TAB 10s 5G will be on sale mid Q2, priced at €349.

Growing Tablet Portfolio: enriched, immersive experiences for all occasions
TCL is expanding its tablet portfolio at MWC 2022 with three new products.
First, the TCL NXTPAPER MAX 10, following the recently launched TCL NXTPAPER 10s, is the latest installment of TCL’s critically acclaimed NXTPAPER line-up. TCL NXTPAPER MAX 10 is available in a Wi-Fi or 4G LTE configuration. Whichever you opt for, it’s an exceptionally capable tablet, delivering learning, entertainment, and creative tools to your hands, matched with reliable battery life.
The tablet’s immersive 10.36-inch NXTPAPER display and 83% screen-to-body ratio create an expansive paper-like canvas. Whether you need a notepad for writing, a big-screen for long bouts of reading, or a movie streaming, game playing tab, it checks all the boxes. The display consists of a unique multi-layer system with each layer playing its own role in filtering harmful blue light and protecting eyesight. Topped off with a layer of anti-glare glass which reduces reflected light, NXTPAPER MAX 10 looks and feels like paper, for a more comfortable, natural reading and writing experience.
Next, the TCL TAB 10 HD 4G offers non-stop entertainment. Get lost in your favorite shows with bright and captivating colors, and thanks to a slim 8.7mm bezel, visual interruptions are kept to a minimum.
With a 5500mAh battery, it will comfortably make it through a full day of reading, watching and browsing, and thanks to its powerful Octa-Core chipset, TCL’s latest 4G tablet delivers capable performance too.
The third tablet in the line-up is the TCL TAB 10s 5G, one of the first affordable tablets to launch with 5G connectivity. Showcasing a 10.1-inch FHD screen, the tablet’s ample resolution and size are matched with NXTVISION technology, so movie and video game visuals are not only enhanced, but are also optimized for eye health.
Add ultra-fast 5G, plus an 8000mAh of battery power and 4GB of memory, and users will be able to stream movies and sports, hold video calls, and multi-task from almost anywhere using cellular or Wi-Fi connectivity.
These products will soon be joined by the TCL TAB PRO 12 5G, an upcoming tablet with a large display and ultra-fast 5G connectivity, with a strong focus towards entertainment and productivity.
The NXTPAPER MAX 10 goes on sale starting in Asia from mid Q2 2022 and will be available from €269.
