The TCL NXTPAPER 11 is a budget tablet with an 11 inch, 2000 x 1200 pixel display, a MediaTek Helio P60T processor, 6GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a microSD card reader with support for cards up to 1TB.
That means TCL missed its promised ship date of May, 2023 by a long shot. But it also means that the company has lowered the price tag and improved the specs a bit: the NXTPAPER 11 was originally supposed to sell for $249 and up, with entry-level models featuring as little as 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
The tablet’s display is its stand-out feature. TCL says the screen supports up to 500 nits peak brightness and has a matte finish and “nano-material layer” to help prevent glare and fingerprint smudges. It can also reduce blue light by up to 61 percent.
Other features include quad speakers, an 8,000 mAh battery, a USB Type-C port, and support for WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0. There are 8MP front and rear cameras. Both can record 1080p video at 30 frames per second, but only the rear camera supports auto-focus, while the front camera has a 100 degree wide-angle lens. TCL says the tablet also supports an optional TCL T-Pen stylus, which will be sold separately.
The tablet ships with Android 13, and TCL hasn’t made any promises about OS or security updates.
