In an effort to help reduce fatigue and protect eyes from everyday device use, TCL announced the NXTPAPER technology about two years ago and improved it further with its second generation the following year.

The technology has been used by the company mainly in tablets and laptops, i.e. devices that we have associated with entertainment, productivity and many hours of content consumption and reading. On the NXTPAPER 11 product page, the company says about the technology: “Enjoy bright, vibrant colors on a paper-textured display that’s 150% brighter than the previous generation. Innovative new NXTPAPER 2.0 optical technology delivers a superior e-book viewing experience with eye-popping brightness and consistent color tones Special material-level design for low blue radiation reduces vision issues and eye strain during long reading.Whether you’re watching movies, playing games, or making video calls, everything looks crystal clear on screen with Eye Comfort mode.

The second generation of NXTPAPER technology is still present in a few of the company’s devices, in three tablets and a convertible laptop, but from this year it will also be found in mobile phones for the first time, in the TCL 40 NXTPAPER and TCL 40 NXTPAPER 5G, Which, contrary to what their name suggests, has more differences than whether or not they have 5G connectivity.

The first of the two models announced by the well-known Chinese company is the TCL 40 NXTPAPER, which is quite reminiscent of the device that we saw in the form of a prototype at the recent CES exhibition. The device features a 6.78-inch LCD screen with a 90Hz refresh rate, FHD+ resolution, and an aspect ratio of 20.5:9.

The screen comes with a special ‘e-reader’ feature that activates a grayscale mode for the user interface which makes it easier to read and helps relieve eye strain. The screen works perfectly with the stylus, which is why the company has a special optional case that includes the T-Pen so you can use it as a laptop. The display technology also allows the phone to adjust the color temperature of the screen depending on the ambient light.

The viewing experience, according to the company, acquires a cinematic dimension by integrating it with stereo speakers equipped with DTS 3D Boom Sound technology. There is also a 3.5 mm jack for connecting headphones.

Inside the TCL 40 NXTPAPER is a MediaTek Helio G88 octa-core processor paired with 8GB of RAM (memory can be doubled by up to 8GB of virtual memory) and 256GB of expandable storage (a separate microSD slot is provided as well). Both are for the same number of nanoSIM cards in it).

The front camera is based on a 32MP sensor (1/3.45″, 0.65µm pixels) while on the back there are three cameras consisting of a 50MP main unit (1/2.76″, 0.64µm pixels) and a 5MP ultra-wide camera. Wide camera (FoV 115°) and macro module based on a 2MP sensor. Both the main and front camera can record 1080p video at 30fps. TCL 40 NXTPAPER houses a 5010mAh battery and supports 33W fast charging (USB-PD) 3.0 with the charger included in the package. Thanks to these specifications, the battery is charged to 50% in about half an hour and a full charge takes 100 minutes.

Although we had the impression that the TCL 40 NXTPAPER 5G would be exactly the same with a difference in the SoC or even in the integrated modem, it is a completely different mobile, in the sense that it has a different screen size.

The screen, as in the case of the previous device, also features comfort / eye protection technology while reducing blue light emissions, but this time it is integrated with 5G technology. However, the screen has a smaller diagonal of 6.6 inches and supports HD+ resolution with an aspect ratio of 20:9. However, it still supports a 90Hz refresh rate, color temperature adjustment, and a T-Pen.

Inside the device is a MediaTek Dimensity 6020 SoC with 6 GB of RAM – which can be doubled using virtual memory technology – and 256 GB of expandable storage (in this case, a microSD memory card must replace one of the two nanoSIM cards that the device accepts because the slot is “shared”). The battery capacity of the device is 5,000mAh and supports 15W fast charging, and the 5G version still has a triple camera on the back with a 50MP main unit (1/2.76 inch, 0.64µm pixels), a 2MP macro camera, 2 depth MP. sensor. The front camera is based on an 8MP sensor. The front and back cameras support 1080p video recording at 30fps but compared to TCL 40 NXTPAPER it has a single speaker while there is no other.

Both cases have fingerprint sensors on the on/off button while running the latest NXTPAPER UI based on Android 13. The TCL 40 NXTPAPER 5G will cost around €249 in the European market when it launches next October.
