We’ve seen TCL on something of a rampage launching devices over the past 18 months. Plenty of phones, some audio gear and even a tablet. The follow-up, TCL’s NXTPAPER 10s paper-like tablet, is here, and it looks like an impressive unit.

The specs aren’t bleeding edge, but nor will it make your credit card scream for mercy. Coming in at $499.00, the device is intended to be an everyday use tablet with enough battery for a full day of use. Perhaps, the strongest selling point is the screen tech.

The screen design is intended to aid your long-term eye health by reducing blue light by over 73%. For anyone not familiar with the concept, it reduces glare as well as strain on your eyes. Given the increasingly connected world we’re in, with increased screen time daily, the importance of eye health can’t be overstated.

The specs of note include:

  • A 10.1-inch FHD anti-glare display
  • Mediayek 8768 processor
  • 64GB Storage with 8GB RAM
  • 8,000mAh battery
  • Android 12 out of the box

Joseph Corrente, Channel Manager for TCL Communication Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands, who we previously spoke to in detail, said:

Today, we are thrilled to be bringing our extremely affordable, innovative paper-like technology to all Australians, which we see as the culmination of years of R&D in our ever-evolving display technology.

The TCL NXTPAPER 10s arrives at a time when Australians are more concerned than ever about the impact of screen time on their eye health and we know we are offering a unique tablet solution for all Australians focused on work, entertainment and learning.

For those looking for a new tablet, or perhaps even a laptop replacement the NXTPAPER 10s has PC Mode built-in. When you use it with the folio keyboard, the mode is easily accessible through the drop down setting from the home screen.

For those wanting peace of mind around updates, the Android Enterprise Recommended label means — in accordance with Google’s guidelines — will receive a minimum of one OS update and three years of security updates.

Soooo.. what screen technology does this “paper like” tablet utilize? It says reduced blue light, but is it some kind of e-paper?
