CES 2021 is already shaping up to be one of the most interesting events in recent memory, and TCL is here to make things even more interesting. In addition to revealing two new smartphones, with plans for more to come, along with an all-new and unique tablet, the latest announcement has the potential to turn the market on its head.
TCL Wearable Display
For the past few years, TCL has been showing off some prototype smart glasses, known as Project Archery. These were thought to be not much more than prototypes, but it seems that the hard work is getting to pay off big time for the company and consumers alike.
TCL Wearable Display is a set of smart glasses that are lightweight and feature dual 1080p FHD micro OLED displays. This provides a 140-degree view from just 4 metes away, along with a pixel density of 49 PPD. TCL states that Wearable Display will be able to be easily connected with “hundreds” of different devices, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops. The only catch, so far, seems to be that you will need to use USB-C with support for 1080p resolution.
It should come as no surprise that this is nothing much more than a major teaser, as we are expecting to hear more about Wearable Display over the next few months. TCL did state that Wearable Display would be available commercially later this year in “select” markets.
TCL MOVEAUDIO S600
It seems that every company is releasing a new pair of headphones, and the same can now ring true for TCL. The MOVEAUDIO S600 are the latest entrant into the truly-wireless earbud market with Active Noise Cancelling and a Transparency Mode.
There’s nothing wrong with competition in the headphone space, even if the sheer number of solid options makes your head spin. The MOVEAUDIO S600 hopes to be a bit different from the rest with the inclusion of Google’s fast pairing technology, along with the built-in wearing detection sensor.
TCL claims that these headphones will provide up to 28 hours of total usage time with ANC turned off, or 20 hours with ANC turned on. Those numbers do include the charging case, as the earbuds themselves are touted as featuring up to 7-hours of juice without noise cancellation or 5 hours with ANC.
Finally, the MOVEAUDIO S600 offers IP54 water, sweat, and dust resistance, making these a solid option for those who want to get some work done, or hit the gym. These headphones will be available in March for 149€.
While there’s a lot of talk about potential tracking tags from Samsung and Apple, TCL is beating both of them to the punch, with a catch. The TCL MOVETRACK is a pet tracker allowing users to keep an eye on their pets from anywhere. The tag provides three different tracking modes thanks to the built-in geo location tracking which uses GPS and Wi-Fi to pinpoint your pets exact location.
TCL seems to have thought about everything, as the MOVETRACK even features an “E-badge QR code”. This can be used to easily contact the owners of a pet that seems to have gotten loose or ran away. Unsurprisingly, there is IP67 water and dust resistance, along with 14-days of battery life.
The TCL MOVETRACK will launch later this Spring in various markets for just 99€.
