TCL Reinforces its Commitment to 5G and Expands Portfolio with New Smartphones, Tablets, and CPEs at Mobile World Congress 2022

TCL, a pioneer in display technology and affordable, premium smart experiences, unveils a range of smart devices at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2022. Reinforcing TCL’s mission to provide 5G connectivity for all, the mobile announcements include an expanded TCL 30 Series line-up, with five new smartphones including a feature-rich 5G model. These are announced alongside three new tablets, including the latest addition to TCL’s innovative NXTPAPER family, and the new TCL TAB 10s 5G. Consolidating its position as a leader in connectivity, TCL also brings to market three new CPEs, including the LINKHUB 5G, a powerful 5G router created to connect hundreds of devices across a range of environments.

“TCL’s vision is to inspire customers to achieve greatness through smart, innovative, and premium technologies and experiences. This is evidenced with the new range of smart devices launched at Mobile World Congress 2022,” said Aaron Zhang, CEO at TCL Communication.

“By continuing to expand our portfolio across several categories, we are bringing to life our mission to make a truly connected world that bridges hardware and software in a meaningful way, improves human connections, and enhances the daily lives of our customers whilst delivering incredible value.”

Expanding the TCL 30 Series: Smartphones that inspire customers’ unique styles

Introducing five new TCL 30 Series smartphones: the TCL 30 5G, TCL 30+, TCL 30, TCL 30 SE, and TCL 30 E. Each delivers feature-rich experiences accessible to all and reinforces the company’s commitment to deliver value, great performance and innovation at a variety of accessible price points.

The TCL 30 Series contains innovative camera features across the line-up that will showcase everyone’s unique style and creative flair. With smart, easy to use 50MP cameras across all the newly announced TCL 30 Series smartphones, landscape photos, portraits, and close-up scenes are reproduced with lifelike detail.

Camera enhancements maximise the smartphone imaging experience. Steady Snap pauses time and clearly captures subjects in motion; Face Tracking is perfect for portraits on the move; and Auto-Capture makes it easy to get more friends in-frame for wide-angle selfies. Whether taking mouth-watering shots of their favourite meals, pet pictures, stylish portraits or awe-inspiring landscapes, these features enhance photos so anyone can level up their photography skills.

TCL’s display legacy also shines brightly across the series, featuring rich, immersive displays that offer quality and eye care, with incredible value. A 6.52-inch mini-notch display graces the TCL 30 SE and TCL 30 E to provide reliably good viewing experiences, while the 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED screens on TCL 30 5G, TCL 30+, and TCL 30 showcase rich contrast, punchy colours, deep blacks and cinematic views. TCL’s pioneering display technology, NXTVISION, furnishes all five smartphones with enhanced visuals and multiple modes with eye care at the focus.

The TCL 30 5G, TCL 30+ and TCL 30 feature ultra-slim 7.74mm thin design, and weigh only 184g for a perfect fit in the palm and pocket. The trio have incredibly slim designs when compared to others with the same battery capacity, so there are no compromises to the battery or the screen.

All five devices come with large batteries over 5000mAh, , meaning more time reading, watching, video calling, and photo taking, and less time looking for a power outlet.

The TCL 30 5G, TCL 30+ and TCL 30 all support 18W fast charging – each device giving customers quick power when they need it. Additionally, all phones are supported by AI smart charging, which intelligently learns sleep patterns based on daily charging routines to reduce battery deterioration, extending long-term battery life.

Customers will enjoy TCL 30 5G’s ultra-fast connectivity and performance, perfect for streaming content – from HD movies to fast paced games, video calling loved ones and downloading apps. TCL 30 5G joins a range of 5G TCL products across multiple categories, including smartphones, tablets, and CPEs, as part of TCL’s mission to make a truly connected world.

Growing Tablet Portfolio: enriched, immersive experiences for all occasions

TCL is expanding its tablet portfolio at MWC 2022 with three new products.

The TCL NXTPAPER MAX 10 follows the recently launched TCL NXTPAPER 10s, and 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 colours, 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 optimised 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 they can get signal or Wi-Fi connectivity without interruption.

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.
