TCL Introduces Next-Generation Smartphone Displays to Alleviate Eye Strain and Fatigue

All smartphone users know the struggle of eye strain and fatigue caused by excessive phone usage. In an effort to address this problem, brands have taken two different approaches. Some brands prioritize vibrant colors and brightness, compensating for this with measures like blue light filters or monochrome modes. Others focus on creating paper-like displays for a more comfortable reading experience.

But TCL, the innovative technology company, is going above and beyond by offering a smartphone display that combines the best of both worlds. Their budget smartphones in the 40 series feature the revolutionary “NXTPAPER” display technology, which was previously seen in some of their tablets and laptops. This display is designed to alleviate eye strain and fatigue, offering a screen that is as fluid as an LCD or OLED, while also being as soothing as electronic paper or e-paper screens.

The “e-paper-like” color display of the TCL 40 NXTPAPER series features an antireflective layer over a standard LCD, resulting in a bright and useful screen that is easy on the eyes, especially in low-light conditions. The display is equipped with a sensor that automatically adjusts the warmth of the colors based on the ambient light and time of day. Additionally, software options allow users to further dial down the colors, enabling longer reading sessions on the phone without discomfort.

But the TCL 40 NXTPAPER series is not just about the unique display. These phones are specifically tailored for the midrange buyer, offering a range of impressive features that cater to every need.


The first phone in the series is the TCL 40 NXTPAPER, a 4G-only device with a large 6.78-inch Full HD+ display. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio G88 chipset and 8GB of RAM, providing smooth performance. Additionally, it offers ample storage space with its 256GB internal storage, which can be expanded up to a massive 2TB using a microSD card.

The TCL 40 NXTPAPER boasts an impressive camera setup, featuring a 50MP primary camera, a 5MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP macro camera on the back. For stunning selfies, it has a 32MP front-facing camera housed within a discreet hole-punch cutout.

To keep you connected all day, the TCL 40 NXTPAPER is equipped with a 5,000mAh battery that can be quickly charged with the included 33-watt fast charger. The phone also features dual speakers with HD audio tuning by DTS, ensuring an immersive audio experience.


In addition to the LTE-only variant, TCL also offers a 5G model in the TCL 40 NXTPAPER series. This variant is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset, accompanied by 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, expandable up to 1TB with a microSD card. It features a slightly smaller 6.6-inch HD+ display with a teardrop notch housing an 8MP front camera.

The TCL 40 NXTPAPER 5G retains the impressive camera setup of its 4G counterpart, with a 50MP primary camera and a 2MP macro camera. However, instead of an ultra-wide-angle lens, it includes a 2MP depth sensor, which may not be as essential for some users.

Powering the TCL 40 NXTPAPER 5G is a 5,010mAh battery, providing reliable battery life. Although it lacks fast charging capabilities, with a peak charging speed of 15W, TCL includes a 10W charger in the box.

Both the TCL 40 NXTPAPER and TCL 40 NXTPAPER 5G come with Android 13 and are guaranteed an update to Android 14. They are also equipped with NFC support and feature side-facing fingerprint scanners for added convenience and security.

Coming to Europe First

TCL plans to launch the 40 NXTPAPER smartphones in Europe, with the LTE model arriving in September for 199 euros ($215). The 5G variant will join its counterpart in October, priced at 249 euros ($270).

While TCL has yet to confirm any plans for a U.S. release, they assure that the phones will be available in more global markets in the coming months.

At last, a smartphone that offers both an exceptional display and relief from eye strain! TCL’s NXTPAPER series is set to revolutionize the way we experience phones, with its unique display technology and impressive features tailored to the midrange market.
