TCL has unveiled a bunch of new products at its IFA 2020 launch announcements. The company has revealed a pair of tablets, a smartwatch for seniors and true wireless earbuds.
The key highlight of its announcements is the new tablets that come in two screen sizes - 10.36-inch and 8-inch - for TCL Tab 10 Max and TCL Tab Mid, respectively. As the name suggests the Tab 10 Max is the superior variant that comes with a Full HD+ (2000x1200) resolution display with slim bezels and a stylus too. The company aims at users who like to consume videos and make video calls using the tablet. It has far-field microphones that are said to enhance the video calling experience. But note that it does not offer top of the line hardware to match the likes of Samsung Galaxy Tab S7. It’s powered by a MediaTek Mali-G72 chipset and ships with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. Further, it has an 8,000mAh battery, a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing camera.
The smaller TCL 10 Tab Mid is an 8-inch tablet with an FHD display, thicker bezels, Snapdragon 665 chipset along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. For optics, it has an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. A 5500mAh battery powers the device.
Both tablets have a dedicated kids mode, and which reduces blue light emission to reduce eye strain.
The Wi-Fi-only variant of Tab 10 Max costs 249 EUR (approx $294 or Rs 21,600), while the 4G model costs 299 EUR (approx $353 or Rs 26,000). It will be available in limited countries globally starting the fourth quarter of 2020. On the other hand, Tab 10 Mid starts at 229 EUR ($270 or Rs 20,000) once it becomes available in the fourth quarter of 2020.
TCL also showcased two new accessories at the event - a smartwatch for seniors and true wireless headphones.
The smartwatch is called TCL Move Time Family Watch, which is a 4G-connected wearable aimed at seniors. It comes packed in a plastic shell with IP67 water and dust resistance. It has a 41x48.5mm AMOLED display. The UI is customised in a way that it's easy-to-use for seniors. It allows the user to send text and voice messages right from their wrist and for calling as well. To make it even more suitable for the purpose, TCL has included features like fall detection, irregular heartbeat alert, and medication reminder too. It allows users to share sleep, activity and other lifestyle metrics with others in the family.
Next up, comes the TCL Move Audio S200, a true wireless earbud that offers ENC noise cancellation and four beam-forming microphones for clearer audio during calls. The battery life on these earphones is claimed to be 3.5 hours, which can be topped upped using the case that carries 23 hours of backup. For connectivity, it offers Bluetooth 5.0 with dual connection feature, allowing you to connect it to two devices simultaneously.
The Move Time Family Watch will be available in the US and Europe this fall. The smartwatch will sell for 229 EUR (approx $270 or Rs 8,600) in Europe. The Move Audio S20 will be available globally at the end of the month. They are priced at 99 EUR (approx $118 or Rs 26,000) in Europe.
