TCL came to CES 2023 with a whole host of new technologies, from budget Android phones to high-end TVs. But what really struck me was the expanded range of Nxtpaper devices the company was showing off.

Nxtpaper is TCL’s clever screen technology that covers the usual LCD with an extra layer that mimics the textured feel of paper. It feels a bit like an Amazon Kindle – only with a color display underneath.

This not only makes using a pen on the display more like writing on paper, with more resistance than a glossy screen, but also reduces glare and the amount of blue light given off.

TCL released its first version of Nxtpaper in tablet form a few years ago, although there was no backlight whatsoever, meaning it could only be used in bright situations. The second version corrected this and the latest addition increased the brightness levels.

I’ve already written about the Nxtpaper 12 Pro, an Android tablet that uses the screen technology, but TCL also showed me a concept Nxtpaper phone that brought the feature to a smaller screen for the first time.

As a concept device, the Nxtpaper phone is not yet consumer ready, and not even a finished product yet. TCL reps told me it was just an idea at the time, but one that could become a real product if there was enough positive feedback.

I spent about an hour with this concept device and it’s immediately clear that there would be some excellent benefits if this type of device became a reality. The matte display is much better in sunnier conditions; Where more traditional phones would struggle with glare, the Nxtpaper diffuses the light, making it easier to read.

TCL also claims the display is better for your eyes as it emits a lot less blue light. Considering you might be looking at your phone 5-6 hours a day, more than you would on a tablet, using this technology on a phone makes a lot of sense.

There are obvious issues, however, and it’s likely that those are yet to make this phone a reality. Brightness is my biggest issue so far, and the Nxtpaper phone had a significantly dimmer display than the iPhone 14 Pro Max I used for comparison.

There’s a softness here too, as the screen doesn’t have the same sharpness as even budget Android phones. Finally, durability is also likely to be an issue. Using a screen protector would render the unique display unusable.

If these issues are resolved, I could definitely see the benefits outweigh the disadvantages of the technology, and I’d love to see it come down to a real product.
