During IFA 2023 the popular brand TCL unveiled its latest NXTPAPER smartphones, offering advanced eye comfort and TÜV certification for low harmful blue light. The devices are able to provide a full-color paper-like viewing experience, that the company claims to be “perfect for everyday binge-watching”.
In addition, these phones have an integrated sensor that automatically adjusts display brightness and color temperature based on the time and environment, enhancing eye comfort even during nighttime usage.
The TÜV certified display can eliminate glare with a paper-like matte texture and it was also designed to resist fingerprint smudges, making outdoor reading on sunny days more enjoyable to the users. The full-color electronic display comes with a specially tailored NXTPAPER UI, allowing users to switch between full-color manga and a black-and-white experience to suit their preferences.

The TCL 40 NXTPAPER has a 6.78” FHD+ NXTPAPER display, and dual speakers (3D boom sound powered by DTS). In the camera department, we have a 32MP for selfies and on the back a 50MP rear triple camera system (including a 5MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP macro sensor), so users can capture details in various settings.
The paper-like display experience is enhanced when paired with the TCL 40 NXTPAPER’s compatible T-pen1, making tasks like note-taking and sketching easier. In terms of memory, users have 256GB of storage, 8GB RAM, and 8GB virtual RAM expansion for an improved multitasking experience.
TCL 40 NXTPAPER 5G
