TC53/TC58 Mobile Computer
Powering a new generation of data collection
Introducing the TC53 and TC58, the first members of a new generation of Zebra mobile computers designed to do more. What makes these devices so different? New hardware redefines mobile computing performance. New solutions and sensor technologies redefine the world of possibilities — from mobile payment to parcel dimensioning. All the latest wireless technologies give workers faster and more reliable access to information they need to get the job done — including 5G, Wi-Fi 6E and CBRS (US only). A class-leading 6-inch screen lets workers see more, do more — and scroll less. Zebra-only Mobility DNATM tools deliver built-in advantage, maximizing user productivity while minimizing IT complexities throughout the entire device lifecycle. New manufacturing technologies make the TC53 and TC58 thinner — yet even more rugged. The result? A new generation of data collection. A new level of operational efficiency. And a new level of workforce productivity. The TC53/TC58 — driving new possibilities into the world of mobility.
Industry-best innovations from the casing to the processor
Get virtually instant response times in the most demanding applications with class-leading processing power, memory and storage — the next-generation Qualcomm® 6490 octa-core processor, up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of Flash, plus a 2 TB MicroSD card slot.
Give your workers the fastest speeds with Wi-Fi 6E and 5G. And support for CBRS private LTE networks enables cost-effective wireless connectivity in the largest indoor and outdoor facilities.
Get the largest, highest resolution and brightest display in this product class. Screens are easy to read indoors and outside. Edge-to-edge technology means more information and less scrolling. It works when wet. And workers can use a stylus or finger, with or without a glove — no need to change modes.
An ergonomic design and advanced manufacturing and materials technology make the TC53 and TC58 thinner, yet rugged.
Get full shift power and the intelligence to better manage batteries with Zebra’s PowerPrecision+ standard 4400 mAh and extended 6600 mAh batteries.
With three integrated microphones, two speakers and support for wireless and wired headsets, collaboration is easy.
The 16 MP integrated camera offers the highest resolution in its class. And with optional Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), it’s easy to capture sharp, detailed photographs to document proof of condition, proof of delivery and more.
Empower a new generation of data collection possibilities in your organization with the extraordinarily innovative TC53/TC58.

Choose the SE4720 1D/2D scan engine for standard scanning ranges or the SE55 1D/2D Advanced Range scan engine with Intellifocus™ technology to scan items in hand or over 40 ft./12 m away (distance dependent on symbology type and size). Both options deliver split-second first time capture of virtually every barcode, regardless of condition.
This accessory family offers it all — charging and Ethernet cradles for the desktop and backroom, accessories for in-vehicle use, a trigger handle for intensive scanning tasks, an RFID adapter and an adapter cup for backwards compatibility with existing TC5x multi-slot ShareCradles and more.
Solutions that define a new age of mobility
Zebra Dimensioning™ Certified Mobile Parcel1 is an industry-first solution that utilizes the integrated Time of Flight sensor to collect accurate ‘legal for trade’ parcel dimensions in just seconds, with the simple press of a button. Pricing is accurate and workers are more productive — no need to manually measure boxes.
Just drop the TC53/TC58 into a Workstation cradle1 to connect to a monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer and more, eliminating the need to purchase and manage separate fixed workstations.
Drop the TC53/TC58 into the Workstation Point-of-Sale cradle1 to connect to everything needed to create a complete POS — such as a large display, scanner, receipt printer, payment terminal, keyboard and mouse.
Take inventory in record time with the standard range RFD40 and standard or extended range RFD90 Ultra-Rugged UHF RFID sleds. These sleds read an impressive 1,300 tags per second. Connect the sleds via a Bluetooth®, NFC or Zebra’s eConnex™ adapter. And Wi-Fi 6E enables easy over-the-air management of the mobile computers and their attached sleds.
Keep workers everywhere connected with the press of a button.
Inside your facility, optional Push-to-Talk (PTT) Express enables instant PTT walkie-talkie style calls over the Wi-Fi network, right out of the box. Out in the field, optional PTT Pro enables PTT calling and secure messaging over the cellular network through an easy-to-deploy cost-effective subscription service.
Add fully-featured PBX handset functionality with Zebra’s Workforce Connect Voice. The need to purchase and manage additional voice-enabled devices is eliminated. And a custom interface makes it easy to execute even the most complex telephony features.
Drive workforce productivity and device value to a new level with Mobility DNA
Create rich apps that take full advantage of your device’s capabilities with Enterprise Mobility Management Tool Kit. Build feature-rich web applications with Enterprise Browser. And easily capture and integrate barcode data into your apps without writing any code with DataWedge API.
Keep your devices secure every day they are in service with LifeGuardTM for AndroidTM 2. And restrict apps and device features with Enterprise Home Screen.
Let your devices provision themselves right out of the box with Zebra Zero-Touch. Stage a handful or thousands of devices with a scan of a barcode or tap on an NFC tag with StageNow.
Locate missing devices quickly and easily with Device Tracker — and with the BLE battery, you can find devices even if they are turned off or the battery is dead. Get dependably superior Wi-Fi connections with Wireless Fusion. Control which Google Mobile Services are active on your devices with GMS Restricted Mode. Test major device systems to eliminate unnecessary trips to the repair depot with Device Diagnostics.
Easily manage Bluetooth accessories with Device Central. Convert ‘green’ screens to intuitive all-touch modern screens with All-touch Terminal Emulation. Give workers a keyboard designed for your data with Enterprise Keyboard. Capture only the barcodes you want with Simulscan. Capture standardized data such as drivers licenses, license plates with OCR Wedge. And more.
