BERLIN--()--TCL Communication announced today at IFA 2016 a new member of its award-winning Xess BigPad series, Xess mini, a smaller and lighter new tablet for home, business and recreational use.

Mini it may be, but it provides a spacious 15.6-inch screen with real oomph inside. It has all the other attributes that characterize the Xess family: sleek, eye-catching design (with different colors, details will be announced later); an immersive viewing experience; a powerful octa-core processor and handy built-in stand that adapts to multiple uses.

“mini” in its name relates to the first generation of the Xess family, with a 17.3-inch screen.

“Xess mini incorporates the most popular features of the larger Xess, including voice control, which works brilliantly with the big size tablet format,” said Dr. Stan HU, General Manager of TCL Communication’s BigPad Business Center. “It’s designed to suit all age groups, with the functionality and power to allow users to play games, watch movies and do work, as well as browse and check email. It goes from the kitchen to the kids’ room and to the living room — with different family members using it to display recipes, chat with friends, enjoy videos or work at home.”

Xess mini is light but powerful, and offers facilities for the elderly with access to Internet for health care and for kids with access to music and games, and learning everyday! In addition, its ingenious built-in stand allows for multiple positions: flat for gaming, 30 degrees for drawing, 50 degrees for Web browsing and 75 degrees for watching videos.

Big Screen With Multi-Window Function and Voice Control

With a simple but innovative interface users can activate Xess mini’s multi-window function, dividing the screen in pre-set configurations so that different activities can be displayed at the same time. One to four zones can be viewed on screen simultaneously, making efficiency and sharing a breeze.

A unique “rocker” control allows users to switch windows easily from various templates.

Xess mini, like the original Xess, offers an interactive digital personal assistant. Users can just say, “Hi, Xess,” to activate this mode. It can open applications, such as turning on music or taking a photo, as well as searching for information, like the weather of today.

Culinary artists will appreciate the hands-free gesture control, which eliminates the need for a touchpad, keyboard or mouse. Just wave to control the screen — no more messy grease spots!

Customization Possibilities With Bespoke Accessories

To customize their devices, users need only access the array of Xess mini accessories: carriable leather case, bluetooth mouse and keypad, blu-ray free film, IP camera, and touch pen.

With its large range of features and accessories, TCL’s Xess mini offers supersize possibilities, anywhere, anytime. It will be available through a number of operators/shops in the fourth quarter of 2016.
