TCL has just announced a suite of new products at CES 2023. The line–up includes a slew of smart products, including the TCL 40 Series smartphone range, two new devices with pioneering NXTPAPER technology, a compact tablet and TCL RayNeo X2, TCL’s next-generation smart wearable glasses.
“TCL’s vision is to inspire greatness so more people can experience a fuller, smarter, richer life,” said Aaron Zhang, Chief Executive Officer at TCL Communication. “One of the ways we achieve this is by listening to customer feedback to constantly improve experiences. This enables us to deliver an enhanced range that offers innovative, connected, and immersive technologies at great value.”
TCL 40 Series and MOVEAUDIO Air limitless entertainment Kicking off TCL’s announcements are the TCL 40 Series, including the TCL 40 R 5G, TCL 40 SE, and TCL 408. Each device features enhanced NXTVISION screen technology, a long–lasting battery, and 50MP AI–powered camera so customers can enjoy limitless entertainment all day and night. TCL democratizes technologies to offer premium–quality features at accessible prices to empower users to connect, explore and share.
For ultra–fast 5G, the TCL 40 R 5G packs a 7nm high-performance 5G processor to keep you connected wherever you are. TCL 40 R 5G demonstrates TCL’s commitment to delivering 5G for all across, so more people can enjoy lightning-fast, connected experiences.
For those who want full audio and visual immersion to keep them occupied on long commutes, TCL 40 SE comes with dual stereo speakers to match the 6.75–inch display. Moreover, it offers a 90 Hz refresh rate display, delivering an ultra–smooth visual experience.
Take exquisitely detailed photographs in style with the TCL 408. Its 2–in–1 hyper camera combines the 50MP main camera and an enhanced macro lens to capture images in amazing high resolution. TCL 408 also comes with dual stereo speakers.
Immersion isn’t just about the display for TCL. Also launching at CES is the TCL MOVEAUDIO Air, the latest TCL earbuds to offer ultimate audio immersion. All–day battery with up to nine hours of music play and super–fast audio combine to deliver crystal–clear, well–balanced sound in a lightweight, comfortable fit.
NXTPAPER – expanding display innovation across categories Beautiful, vivid screens aren’t just coming to smartphones.
TCL is also expanding its innovative NXTPAPER display technology to new categories with the TCL NXTPAPER 12 Pro tablet and TCL’s first ever 2–in–1 detachable laptop, TCL BOOK X12 Go.
Both devices come with a 12.2–inch 2K NXTPAPER screen and a paper–like display that filters more harmful blue light by up to 61%1 than regular screens. Eye protection hardware and software are layered to help reduce eye strain and retain original, vibrant colours without yellowing.
Most tablets that offer eye protection compromise on screen brightness, but NXTPAPER screens provide both supreme eye care and a high–quality display experience. The screens are as bright as regular tablets – 100% more than the previous iteration of NXTPAPER – meaning visuals remain sharp and clear whilst also protecting vision.
Lightweight and slim, TCL NXTPAPER 12 Pro is easy to carry and hold when watching movies on a flight or train. The 3:2 aspect ratio provides 18.5% more content than a regular 16:9 screen to facilitate efficiency. When paired with the TCL E–Pen (included), jot notes, sketch a plan, or check off that “to-do” list, with amazing paper–like smoothness. So, whether playing with multiple apps, watching a game while analyzing stats, or sinking into a new novel, TCL NXTPAPER 12 Pro offers a truly immersive display experience.
TCL BOOK X12 Go provides unlimited creativity and productivity capabilities so users never have to compromise. Windows 11 Home is pre–installed, whilst the robust Octa–core processor and 14–hour long–lasting battery support all-day use and gets more done.
Compact Tablet – the portable and efficient multi–tasker for those on–the–go
The TCL TAB 8 LE is the perfect ultra–compact tablet for staying connected at home and on the go. With a portable and featherweight design, this small wonder fits easily in a large pocket or small bag.
TCL TAB 8 LE sports an 8–inch HD display, quad–core processor, LTE connectivity and an all–day 4080mAh battery.
The 5MP front and rear cameras are ideal for recording videos on vacation or catching up with the team at work on a video call. Dual stereo speakers deliver immersive sound, while the 32GB internal storage packs enough memory for your favourite apps and also supports expandable microSD card storage of up to 512GB, so saving a whole TV series to watch on the next road trip is convenient and easy.
Smart wearable glasses – the next step into the future display experiences
TCL RayNeo X2 is the world’s first to realize binocular full-colour Micro-LED optical waveguide display in AR glasses. Tackling the industry challenge of making AR glasses look like conventional eyeglasses without compromising on tech specs, TCL RayNeo X2 maintains a subtle and lightweight body for everyday wear while serving powerful all-in-one assistant features, from smart navigation and auto-translation to photography and music play.
Significant display upgrades, including a high contrast ratio (CR) of up to 100,000:1 and an outstanding image brightness of up to 1,000 nits, generate enhanced visual effects and make the AR glasses ideal for both indoor and outdoor usage.
AI translation interprets multiple languages in real-time. When speaking face-to-face, the AR glasses automatically detect and translate in-person conversations with subtitles displayed on the screen – perfect for building business connections and travelling overseas. The translation features create immersive language learning experiences for the wearer.
Content captured on the glasses can be easily transferred to smartphones, handy when sharing new discoveries with friends on social media. Meanwhile, enjoy your “me time” by listening to your music in unique “whisper mode”, effectively preventing sound leakage while also protecting your privacy.
Also at CES, the TCL NXTWEAR S wearable display glasses make their debut in the U.S. and European markets. Featuring an equivalent 130–inch, high–definition screen four meters away, new–generation dual 1080p Micro OLED displays, and a unique acoustic phase cancellation mode, TCL NXTWEAR S offers you a cinematic audiovisual experience anywhere, anytime.
CES also saw the launch of the TCL NXTWEAR V glasses as TCL takes a bold step in bringing virtual reality experiences to market with the NXTWEAR V virtual reality concept. With only 236g, the light and comfortable wear, enables users to forget which reality they are in as they experience realistic colour performance and interactivity. The display, developed by TCL CSOT, produces a realistic colour performance thanks to the VR optical module providing a 108-degree field of view and 1512ppi pixel density, improving both picture quality and relief from dizziness. Whether discovering the metaverse, playing immersive games, or learning new skills, TCL NXTWEAR V captivates users in a world they will want to explore for hours.
