The TCL NXTPAPER 11 is a budget tablet with an 11 inch, 2000 x 1200 pixel display, a MediaTek Helio P60T processor, 6GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a microSD card reader with support for cards up to 1TB.

When it was first introduced in February, the tablet was also the first to feature TCL’s NXTPAPER 2.0 anti-glare technology. Now the tablet is available for purchase for $230.

That means TCL missed its promised ship date of May, 2023 by a long shot. But it also means that the company has lowered the price tag and improved the specs a bit: the NXTPAPER 11 was originally supposed to sell for $249 and up, with entry-level models featuring as little as 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

The tablet’s display is its stand-out feature. TCL says the screen supports up to 500 nits peak brightness and has a matte finish and “nano-material layer” to help prevent glare and fingerprint smudges. It can also reduce blue light by up to 61 percent.

Other features include quad speakers, an 8,000 mAh battery, a USB Type-C port, and support for WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0. There are 8MP front and rear cameras. Both can record 1080p video at 30 frames per second, but only the rear camera supports auto-focus, while the front camera has a 100 degree wide-angle lens. TCL says the tablet also supports an optional TCL T-Pen stylus, which will be sold separately.

The tablet ships with Android 13, and TCL hasn’t made any promises about OS or security updates.

  1. Early reviews are not kind to this tablet, especially to its performance — you know it’s bad when it can’t even play YouTube above 480p without stuttering (see https://www.pocket-lint.com/tcl-nxtpaper-11-tablet-review/). Another issue that reviewers note is the abysmal charging speed; it only supports 18W charging, and only comes with a 5W charger in the box, so filling that huge 8,000 mAh battery will take ~5 hours with a 18W charger, to say nothing of the included one (see https://www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/tcl-nxtpaper-11). If you’re going to use this just as an eBook reader that occasionally will get used for more generic Android apps and web browsing, I guess it’s not bad, but overall it seems pretty lackluster for the price.

  2. In Portugal the 4GB/128GB version has been available for some months, lowest price I could find was 192€.

    As for updates, TCL has a very bad track record. They announce OS upgrades for some devices and don’t follow through. They promised upgrade to Android 12 for most of the 20-series phones, never happened. I have a 20L and last security update is from January, and came in June quite as a surprise…

    1. It may not be true but I have heard that the number of people working at LG for their TV firmware can be counted on your fingers. I guess firmware is hugely arcane. One ray of hope is Stellar for XBox, but no sane company would likely go that route.

  3. Is this Nxtpaper display actually any good?

    I remember buying (overpriced!) boox with colour display and every time I picked it up, all I ever thought was that I wished I’d spent the money on an ipad mini!

    At least these tablet are quite cheap, even though the performance still looks a bit low-grade

  4. For being 6 months late, they increased the RAM by 50%, doubled the storage, and lowered the price by $20? Who does that in this day and age? I might buy one just to reward them for that.
