The first TCL NXTPAPER tablet will have an 8 inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1440 x 1080. When compared to traditional e-ink, TCL NXTPAPER has 25% higher contrast for better viewing and when compared to a typical LCD panel, TCL NXTPAPER is up to 36% thinner creating a device that can be much slimmer and lighter. NXTPAPER display technology is also more than 65% more power efficient than a typical LCD, allowing for much better battery efficiency and overall longer device battery life.
The screen has no flickering images, no blue light or light at all. The goal for TCL was to create a device that can be used for the whole day, especially in these times were a lot of kids are studying at home. However, since it doesn’t emit light, it will ship with a dedicated light that goes into the USB. The TCL Nxtpaper has many advantages over other display types. TCL says Nxtpaper reuses natural light for full-color reproduction, and that it can producer a 25% higher contrast than e-ink. It’s also 65% more power efficient than LCD meaning devices that use Nxtpaper will last longer on a charge.
