the TCL NXTPAPER 12 Pro It is an Android tablet with a 12.2-inch 2160 x 1440-pixel IPS LCD screen, a MediaTek Kompanio 800T processor, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.

It’s already available in Russia, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see TCL bring this tablet (or something like it) to other markets soon. I suspect we’ll hear more about the company’s 12-inch tablet plans at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

The version to be released first in China ships with Android 12 software pre-installed, packs an 8000mAh battery, and comes with an 18W charger.

While TCL has used the brand name NXTPAPER in the past to indicate that its tablets have some form of paper-like display technology, the product description for this model says that “the display surface is tactilely paper-like and virtually collects fingerprints. Or at least that’s the most information I can get about the screen via Google translate.

The NXTPAPER 12 Pro has an unusual camera arrangement. On the back of the tablet is a single 13 MP main camera, while on the front you’ll find dual 8 MP cameras. While it’s rare to find an Android device with more front-facing cameras than rear-facing cameras, that seems to be the approach TCL is taking here for some reason.

MediaTek’s Kompanio 800T (MT8771) processor is a 6nm octa-core chip with two Cortex-A76 CPU cores, six Cortex-A55 cores, and Mali-G57 MC2 graphics.

Other features include a microSD card reader (with support for cards up to 512GB), WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.1, a USB Type-C port, quad speakers, and dual microphones.

For whatever reason, the product listings also mention a SIM eject tool, but the tablet doesn’t seem to have a cellular modem. Maybe a future version will?

The TCL NXTPAPER 12 Pro measures 279 x 192 x 6.9mm (11″ x 7.6″ x 0.27″) and weighs 599 grams (1.3lbs).
