TCL's NXTPAPER color paper-like screen arrives on a real tablet

Engadget

Last year, TCL announced its intriguing NXTPAPER technology that was not only a full color paper-like display, but was also capable of playing video at relatively high frame rates. Back then, the company didn't have anything to share on an actual product you could buy using this tech. Now, at CES 2021, it's finally ready to unveil the creatively named TCL NXTPAPER -- an 8.88-inch Android tablet with the new screen. The panel is basically a low-power reflective LCD that the company said "reuses natural light," doing away with backlighting. TCL said it's 36 percent thinner than typical LCDs while offering higher contrast and 65 percent better power efficiency. The company also said the screen has no flicker or "harmful blue light."


TCL's new paper-like display can also play videos

Engadget

TCL has made a name for itself with its affordable TV sets and phones, but the company wants to prove it can also innovate and make new technology. It's announcing something called NXTPAPER today -- a new type of display that's meant to offer better eye protection by reducing flicker, blue light and light output. The company said the effect is similar to E Ink, calling it a "combination of screen and paper." TCL also said it has received eye protection certifications from the German Rhine laboratory, and has 11 different patents for eye protection. Don't expect to see NXTPAPER appear on a smartphone, though.

This year the planet's biggest tech show--normally sprawled across the many convention halls and ballrooms of Las Vegas--was entirely virtual. While it was much-reduced in terms of scale, some might even say that the lack of glitz, glad-handing, and white noise allowed one to focus on the heart of the matter: taking the wrappers off of some shiny new gear. Despite the smaller size, there were still hundreds and hundreds of products to comb through and the Reviewed and USA TODAY teams were no less busy covering CES from end-to-virtual-end.
