Barcelona, Spain – At Mobile World Congress 2024 in Barcelona, TCL made a series of significant announcements as it continues its drive to make advanced technology more accessible and user-friendly.

The company unveiled an extensive portfolio of new 5G-enabled devices, including smartphones, tablets, and smart connected products leveraging the latest NXTPAPER display technology.

“2024 marks a new level of confidence for us as we push the boundaries on making technology more human and expanding our offerings to users,” said Aaron Zhang, CEO of TCL Communication.

TCL is doubling down on its NXTPAPER display technology, designed to optimize viewing comfort and eye health. The third generation, NXTPAPER 3.0, minimizes eye strain and blue light exposure through advanced hardware-level engineering.

The star of TCL’s NXTPAPER showcase is the NXTPAPER 14 Pro tablet. Previewed at CES earlier this year, it features a expansive 14-inch 2.8K display incorporating innovative circularly polarized light (CPL) technology and DC dimming to reduce glare and flicker.

Powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 8020 chipset, 12GB RAM, and a massive 12,000mAh battery, the NXTPAPER 14 Pro is a productivity powerhouse in a sleek, travel-friendly design.

TCL has expanded the NXTPAPER lineup with the more affordable NXTPAPER 14 tablet. While scaled back slightly in memory compared to the Pro model, it maintains the same high-quality 14.3-inch 2.4K NXTPAPER 3.0 display and 10,000mAh battery for all-day comfortable use.

Also announced was the TCL TAB 10 NXTPAPER 5G, the company’s first NXTPAPER tablet with integrated 5G connectivity. Its 10.4-inch 2K NXTPAPER display and 5G speeds make it an ideal family tablet for entertainment and productivity on-the-go.

Meeting Every Need with the 50 Series

TCL’s 50 Series smartphones represent the company’s most diverse 5G lineup to date, with a range of models catering to different budgets and preferences. Multiple variants feature NXTPAPER displays, including the 50 XL and 50 XE, bringing enhanced eye comfort to smartphone users.

For the U.S. market, TCL has expanded carrier partnerships to ensure wide availability of the 50 series across networks. The 50 XL, 50 XL 5G, 50 XE, 50 XE 5G, and 50 LE will be available from TCL.com, Metro by T-Mobile, and potentially other carriers.

The headliner is the 50 XL 5G, featuring a massive 6.8-inch 120Hz FHD+ display, resonant dual speakers with DTS audio, and a 50MP triple camera system. With its large battery, NXTURBO performance optimization, and ample memory, it’s designed for multimedia enthusiasts.

Productivity is the focus of the 50 XE 5G, sporting a 6.6-inch 90Hz HD+ display, expandable 4+4GB RAM, a 50MP triple camera, and a 5,010mAh battery to keep up with demanding multitaskers.

For a more affordable option blending work and play, the 50 5G offers a 6.6-inch 90Hz display, Google’s Android Enterprise Recommended certification, and 5G connectivity with expandable 4+4GB RAM.

Rounding out the 50 series are the multimedia-centric 50 SE, with a 6.8-inch FHD+ display, 12GB RAM, and 256GB expandable storage, and the budget 50 LE, pairing a 6.6-inch 90Hz HD+ screen with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

Accelerating 5G for the Internet of Things

Beyond smartphones and tablets, TCL announced new 5G smart connected devices aimed at enabling affordable internet of things (IoT) deployment and adoption. The LINKKEY IK511 USB dongle is one of the world’s first products based on the 3GPP Release 17 RedCap 5G standard.

RedCap, or Reduced Capability, is a 5G specification optimized for lower power, complexity, and cost compared to enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) 5G. It will enable 5G connectivity for IoT use cases that don’t require the full capabilities and overhead of eMBB networks.

Powered by the Snapdragon X35 5G modem from Qualcomm, the LINKKEY IK511 represents a milestone in commercializing RedCap technology to make 5G cheaper and more accessible for connected devices and machines.

“Qualcomm is enabling a world where everyone and everything can be intelligently connected,” said Gautam Sheoran, VP of Product Management at Qualcomm. “The Snapdragon X35, one of the first commercially available 5G RedCap modems, advances a unified 5G platform to expand the ecosystem to new IoT and entry-level broadband devices.”

To complement its RedCap dongle, TCL also debuted the LINKHUB HH132 Pro home router. With advanced Wi-Fi 6 technology, support for up to 256 concurrent devices, and a high-gain antenna array, it promises seamless whole-home connectivity with speeds up to 600Mbps.

These announcements reinforce TCL’s vision to push the boundaries of accessible innovation, blending technical sophistication with user-friendly design. With its expanded NXTPAPER lineup, diverse 5G-enabled 50 series smartphones, and connected RedCap devices, TCL aims to empower more users to benefit from cutting-edge mobile technology.
