TCL will launch a new 10.4-inch tablet this summer by the name of TCL Tab 10 Gen 2. The price has not been disclosed yet so we’ll have to wait a while for that.
But the specifications are out, so let’s look at that in the meantime before it launches.
As a Full HD Android tablet of this size, it’s trying to break into the category dominated by Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite Refresh, Samsung Galaxy Tab A8, Lenovo Tab M10 Plus (3rd Gen), and Lenovo Tab P11 (2nd gen).
It’s equipped with a 2.0 GHz MediaTek MT8768 processor, has 4GB RAM, and 64GB or 128GB storage options.
The 10.4-inch screen (actual size is 10.36 inches) has a display resolution of 2000 x 1200, with 350 nits brightness, and TCL’s NXTVISION feature, which can be tweaked to display a color temperature that fits each person’s individual vision preference.
It runs Android 13 out of the box, but will be eligible for an Android 14 update when that rolls out from TCL later on. TCL is also adding the new user interface TCL UI on top of that.
The battery life is a little on the low side, with a 9 hour battery life squeezed out of the 6000 mAh battery.
What else? Well it has a 5MP front camera, an 8MP rear camera, stereo speakers, a single mic, Wi-Fi 5, BT 5.0, optional 4G, and the sensors G-sensor, L-sensor, and Hall sensor.
Optional extras includes the TCL T-Pen active stylus, TCL’s Bluetooth keyboard, and custom protective film for the screen.
It will be launched in the color options gray or blue, and it’s relatively light, at 425 grams. The thickness is not bad either, at 7.35mm.
But ultimately it comes down to the processor when evaluating this tablet. And on that account, this tablet is just way too slow compared to the faster and more powerful alternatives from Samsung and Lenovo.
