TCL launched its 8-inch 10 TABMID slate during IFA 2020 Special Edition. Now, a variant of this device has launched in the US through the carrier Verizon. It has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, but also has 4G connectivity and its OEM's NXTVISION screen technology. It has been priced at just under US$200 and is available from now.

Despite the TCL 10 TABMID's 8-inch and FHD+ status, it was still launched as a 4G device at IFA in 2020. Its maker claims to have packed a deal of display-enhancing features into the tablet, which protect the user from blurry visuals, excess blue light and latency among other things. This may help draw consumers to use it despite its Nexus 7-esque bezels.

This may be why Verizon has picked it up as a new device on its 4G/LTE network. The TCL TAB, a variant of the original 10 TABMID with 3GB of RAM, a 5500 mAh battery and the Snapdragon 665 SoC, debuted as such through the medium of an oddly off-putting and unconvincing YouTube portrayal of 2 child actors being home-schooled.

Accoridngly, TCL and Verizon now assert that this TAB can support all the video-calling, (educational) content-consumption and mobile data-using needs of the modern household. It may do so in exchange for US$199.99 in Verizon's stores from now.
