The TC57 Touch Computers build on the highly successful TC56, adding a new platform and new capabilities to deliver the ultimate in enterprise-class touch computing. You get the ultimate user experience — the simplicity of Android with all the business features workers need to maximize productivity and minimize process cycle times. You get the ultimate technology advancements on a cutting edge platform, maximizing the benefits of mobility today, with the future-proofing you need to serve your business tomorrow. You get the ultimate collection of value-add apps, Mobility DNA, with four new complementary solutions that deliver unparalleled functionality — including the best possible WiFi performance, centralized control of the device update process, control over access to Google Mobile Services (GMS) and more. And optional Visibility Services offer the ultimate in device management capabilities to maximize device value.
Need to capture multiple barcodes on a single label or data on a form, such as checkboxes, text fields, signatures and more? You can do it all with the press of a single button with Zebra’s SimulScan, a no-cost pre-installed Mobility DNA application.
The PowerPrecision+ high capacity battery delivers up to an impressive 14 hours of power 2 — plenty for the longest shift. With Warm Swap mode, swapping batteries is fast and easy — there’s no need to turn off the device or close active apps. And with fast charging, batteries are fully charged and ready to go in record time.
Your users can easily create unique dedicated soft keys on either side of the display to access their most frequently used device features and applications with single touch simplicity — from the scanner, camera and line-of-business applications to push-to-talk and text messaging.
While these touch computers look like smartphones, the similarities stop there — they are engineered for the enterprise, inside and out. You can drop it in water or on concrete and use it in dusty areas, out in the rain or snow — and still expect reliable operation. The unibody design provides extra impact protection for sensitive electronics. And the Corning Gorilla Glass touch panel and imager window bring maximum scratch-resistance and shatter-proofing to two of the most vulnerable device features.
Give your workers touchscreen simplicity. The 5 in. display offers plenty of real estate for graphics-intensive intuitive applications. The easy, familiar and flexible multi-touch operation works even when wet, with a gloved finger or a stylus. And with best-in-class outdoor readability, the screen is easy to read, even in bright sunlight.
Advanced scanning technology and PRZM Intelligent Imaging deliver lightning-fast capture of printed and electronic 1D and 2D barcodes, including Digimarc — regardless of condition. The expanded working range and wide field of view allow workers to scan barcodes nearer and farther away, while omnidirectional scanning delivers true point and shoot performance — no need to ever align the device with the barcode.
The ultra-powerful processor provides superior performance on all voice and data apps. You also get built-in support for the next two versions of Android (P and Q) 1 and future apps, such as artificial intelligence.
Easily implement locationing with support for many technologies, including Visible Light Communication (VLC), Bluetooth 5.0 BLE and WiFi, plus Zebra’s SmartLens and MPact solutions.
2x2 Multiple-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) technology allows access points to communicate with multiple devices simultaneously via pinpoint beamforming, boosting WiFi network capacity, speed and range. And processing is shifted from the mobile device to the access point, extending battery cycle time.
Three microphones, high-volume speakers and noise-cancellation technology work together to ensure that callers on both ends of every call can hear every word — even in the noisiest areas.
With the new front-facing camera, you get built-in support for the latest locationing technology, Visible Light Communication (VLC), which allows you to track the location of shoppers and workers using existing LED lighting infrastructure. Video calling improves service and productivity. Customers enjoy a more personal touch — and remote experts can see a repair in process to help onsite technicians resolve issues faster and increase first-time fix rates.
The TC57 provides all workers anywhere in the world with dependable cellular service. Support for carrier aggregation substantially improves application performance by increasing data capacity and speeds. And support for the powerful Public Safety LTE network provides reliable communications first responders need, eliminating network congestion concerns and providing the interagency operation required for improved situational awareness.
The 13 MP colour rear camera captures highly detailed photos and videos — ideal for proof-of-condition/delivery/service, onsite technical support and more.
A new Bluetooth range of 800 ft./240 m and data speeds up to 2 Mbps increases application flexibility and performance for Bluetooth peripherals, such as printers and headsets, while Bluetooth Low Energy reduces power requirements to extend battery cycle times.
Unlike consumer smartphones, you get a full suite of backward-compatible business-class accessories that make the TC57 easier to use and manage, from a snap-on trigger handle for easier scanning to unique ShareCradles that charge it all — devices and batteries.
Provide every worker with the best possible WiFi connection, every minute of every shift. This free tool delivers near-instant application response times, unmatched roaming performance, plus exceptional voice quality and network diagnostics — everything you need to leverage your WiFi network to increase workforce productivity and better serve customers.
This free PC-based solution provides an easy-to-read dashboard that allows you to quickly identify and remove aging batteries from your battery pool — before they impact workforce productivity and mobile device uptime.
Updating your enterprise-class Android mobile devices is often time-consuming, costly, complex and difficult to track. Now you can do it all with LifeGuard Analytics — free with your Zebra OneCare Support contract. View available updates along with priority and which devices are eligible for the update. Automatically update your devices over the air with the press of a button. And easily monitor and manage the status of updates in real-time.
StageNow’s new Restricted Mode delivers an industry first — an easy way to simply click to deactivate Google Mobile Services (GMS) that come standard with the operating system — and reactivate should you need them down the road. StageNow is free and pre-loaded on every TC57.
Get the device management data you need to take device uptime, operational efficiency and the return on investment to the next level. Asset Visibility Service (AVS) is an easy to use and deploy solution that doesn’t require an Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) system. Operational Visibility Services (OVS) is a comprehensive device management solution that leverages your EMM information to help get more value out of your Zebra mobile devices. These optional services can be added to your optional Zebra OneCare support contract.
