8-Inch Tablet, 14-Inch Flexible OLED, And Smart Tech Ecosystem Integration Also Announced By TCL At CES 2023

While TCL took the wraps of two new tablets at CES this week, with the Android tablet TCL NXTPAPER 12 Pro and the Windows tablet TCL Book X 12 Go, they also had more tablet related stuff up their sleeve.

One of them was the quiet unveiling of the 8-inch mid-range tablet TCL TAB 8 LE, which is a entry level Android tablet with a 1280 x 800 resolution display, included 4G, 5MP front and rear cameras, stereo speakers, an old MediaTek quad-core processor, 32GB storage, and a 4080 mAh battery with 10W charging.

The TCL TAB 8 LE will launch in the US in January for $159. Of course, nobody in their right mind would buy that tablet over the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite, but that's another story.

Even less known was the TCL CSOT tablet looking prototype or showpiece featuring TCL's flexible CSOT OLED display.

TCL has shown us a few different showpieces with the flexible CSOT display technology the last 3 years, and this one is a 14-inch AMODLED screen with a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2400 and a 120Hz refresh rate.

TCL intends to launch some form of foldable, rollable, slidable, or other flexible smartphone-tablet hybrid at some point, so at least this looks like a good start.

The last tablet related piece announced by TCL at CES was the TCL Link ecosystem integration which will be launched later on, which intends to make it easer to integrate all smart technologies people are using from one place.

We have seen most major tablet brands attempt something similar with varying degrees of success and commitment over they years, so let's see if TCL Link will be any different.
