TC72 and TC77 Series Touch Computer

The Ultimate in Ultra-Rugged Enterprise-Class All Touch Computing

At the edge of your business are your front line workers that spend their days face-to-face serving the important asset in your company — your customers. Now, there’s a device designed to take customer service to the next level by delivering everything your workers need to achieve peak efficiency, with trouble-free reliability — the TC72 and TC77 Android Touch Computers. This family builds on the highly successful TC7 Series family to create the ultimate ultra-rugged all-touch computer for all workers inside and outside the four walls — a smartphone experience for maximum simplicity, construction designed to withstand years of the toughest everyday use and abuse, and a new platform offering more capabilities than any other device in this class. The TC72 and TC77 — for a real competitive edge at the edge of your business, delivered.

TC72 and TC77

The Ultimate User Experience

Android for Instant Familiarity

Your workers already know how to use an Android device, virtually eliminating training time and adoption curves. And you can deliver the highly graphic interactive apps today’s workers expect.

Advanced Touchscreen Technology

Give your workers touchscreen simplicity. The high-definition 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.

Super Simple Data Capture — From Barcodes to Labels and Documents

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.

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.

Full Shift Power Your Workers Can Count On

The PowerPrecision+ high capacity battery delivers up to an impressive 15 hours of power1 — 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.

Complete Cellular Network Flexibility with Single Device Simplicity

No matter where your workers are, you can give them dependable cellular service. Simultaneous support for two carriers is ideal for workers that travel to areas better served by different carriers. And aggregated carrier support delivers faster upload and download speeds. Also, the TC77 is certified on leading public safety networks, including AT&T FirstNet and Verizon, assuring responders have the connectivity they need even when networks are overloaded in crisis situations.

Support for the Latest WiFi Enhancement Improves WiFi Range and Speed — With Less Power

Provide your users with faster and more reliable WiFi connections with 2x2 Multiple-User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) technology. Your access points can now 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.

Bluetooth 5.0 for Twice the Speed and Four Times the Range — With Less Power

An extended range of 800 ft./240 m and data speeds up to 2 Mbps increase application flexibility and performance for Bluetooth peripherals, such as printers and headsets, while Bluetooth Low Energy reduces power requirements to extend battery cycle times.

New 5 MP Front-Facing Camera Supports More Advanced Apps

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.

Ultra High-Resolution Photos and Videos

The 13 MP color rear camera captures highly detailed photos and videos — ideal for proof-of-condition/delivery/service, onsite technical support and more.

The Highest Quality Voice in Its Class

With high-volume speakers and noise-cancellation technology, callers on both ends of every call can hear every word — even in the noisiest areas.


Built to Last

The Ultimate in Ultra-Rugged Proven Design

When it comes to use and abuse and demanding environmental conditions, the TC72/TC77 is at the top of its class. Built to handle 8 ft./2.4 m drops to concrete and 2,000 tumbles, with IP65 and IP68 sealing, this device is virtually waterproof, drop-proof, dust-proof and tumble-proof — workers can drop it, use it outdoors in the rain, snow, freezing cold or sweltering heat and still expect reliable operation. 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 — the display and lens eye.

A Platform to Handle All Your Apps — Today and Tomorrow

The ultra-powerful processor provides superior performance on all voice and data apps. You also get built-in support for future versions of Android, upgradable through Android R and future apps, such as artificial intelligence.3

Maximize Productivity with Enterprise Accessories

Unlike consumer smartphones, a full suite of business-class accessories improve ease of use and management. A trigger handle makes scanning easier and unique ShareCradles that charge devices and batteries simplify backroom management. And with full backwards compatibility with TC70x/ TC75x accessories, you can cost-efficiently upgrade to advanced touch computing that will better serve your bottom line.

Rich Locationing Support

Easily implement locationing with support for many technologies, including VLC, Bluetooth 5.0 BLE and WiFi, plus Zebra’s SmartLens and MPact solutions.

The Ultimate in Device Management Options

Improve Device Value with Zebra’s Optional Visibility Services

Get the device management data you need to take device uptime, operational efficiency and the return on investment to the next level with Zebra’s optional Visibility Services. Asset Visibility Service (AVS) is an easy to use and easy to deploy solution that doesn’t require an Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) system. Operational Visibility Services (OVS) is a comprehensive device management solution that leverages and adds to the information in an EMM to help you get more value out of your Zebra mobile devices.
