TCL has just introduced the NXTPAPER 10s, a budget Android tablet that aims to replicate the feel of real paper and also takes care of the user's eyes by cutting down blue light exposure. The NXTPAPER solution was showcased about two years ago to deliver a paper-like viewing experience without the typical glass screen flaws such as glaring, flickering, or pixel burn-in over time. The secret sauces are a transflective display and proprietary light polymerization tricks to deliver natural light without any of its harshness in tow.
For the NXTPAPER tech, TCL patented some eye protection contrivances that work at both software and hardware levels, blocking harmful blue light and providing a softer lumination. The result might sound like what colored e-ink panels aim to achieve, but TCL's solution is still a traditional screen with IPS technology at its heart. Aside from offering a colorful paper-like experience, the overall setup is also said to be more power-efficient. However, it does not know how it stacks up against modern solutions like LTPO panels for automatic refresh rate adjustment.
