TCL has launched the TAB Pro 5G slate to the North American market. It has a 10-inch display and an affordable-grade Qualcomm processor for its up-to-date connectivity. This will be accessed through Verizon's network, as the tablet will be sold through this carrier only on its release.

TCL has introduced its inaugural 10-series tablet with 5G in partnership with Verizon. The new slate owes its new spec to the Snapdragon 480 SoC, also found in some new phones that might go for less than US$200. The TAB Pro 5G, on the other hand, is priced at $400.

The OEM might justify that price through the device's new 10.36-inch FHD display with its proprietary NXTPAPER technology. This form of LCD offers advanced "eye protection" features, including Eye Comfort, Adaptive Brightness and a Reading Mode. It is kept on with an 8,000mAh battery rated for up to 17 hours of use per charge, unless the user needs its handy "on-the-go" power-bank function for other devices.

The TAB Pro 5G does charge at a very standard 18 watt (W) rate, although it does come with a charger for this purpose. It has a single 4GB RAM/64GB expandable storage SKU in a Metallic Black chassis with a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. This new Android 11 tablet is available to Verizon customers from now.
