The TCL WQ gaming tablet with a punch-hole camera and a 240Hz refresh rate was recently leaked on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo. TCL is not the first manufacturer to offer a punch-hole camera setup on a tablet, as Huawei is scheduled to launch its MatePad Pro on November 25th. TCL, however, takes the upper hand with a higher refresh rate.

According to a reputed Chinese blogger and tipster, the WQ is likely to flaunt a 10.8-inch display that TCL calls its WQ Gaming Tablet display. It supports quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, offers 280ppi pixel density, DCI-P3 color gamut, a brightness level of 500 nits and a 2ms gray-to-gray response time. The leaked image also reveals that the tablet’s screen is surrounded by super-slim bezels. The spec sheet further mentions that the display is 1.5mm thick and the punch hole is present on the top left corner of the bezel. The punch hole measures 3.5 mm x 0.6 mm. The others specs of the device are currently under wraps.
The talking point of the WQ gaming tablet is its 240Hz refresh rate display that are predominantly found on larger gaming monitors and TVs. TCL has successfully brought this technology to smaller displays. While gaming smartphones have risen to popularity in the past few years, gaming tablets have failed to take off. TCL’s WQ gaming tablet might be able to revive the demand.
Speaking of punch-hole display tablets, Huawei is all set to debut the Huawei MatePad Pro tablet with punch-hole display on November 26th. The device appeared on TENAA and 3C regulatory bodies with preliminary details. The tablet codenamed Marx will be available in two variants. While the Wi-Fi variants are model number MRX-W09 and MRX-W19, the LTE variants are called MRX-AL09 and MRX-AL19. The MatePad Pro features 40W Supercharge technology similar to the Huawei Mate 30 and the Mate 30 Pro.
