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 5 in. display offers plenty of real estate for graphics-intensive applications. The easy, familiar and flexible multi-touch operation works even when wet, with a gloved finger or a stylus. And with the best-in-class outdoor readability, the screen is easy to read, even in bright sunlight.

Easily Capture It All — Barcodes, 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 an impressive 14 hours of power2 — 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.

Active Edge™ Touch Zone for One-touch Feature Access

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.


All the Latest Technology Advancements

Rugged and Ready for the Toughest Business Day

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 the 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.

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 the next two versions of Android (P and Q)1 and future apps, such as artificial intelligence.

Rich Locationing Support

Easily implement locationing with support for many technologies, including Visible Light Communication (VLC), Bluetooth 5.0 BLE and WiFi, plus Zebra’s SmartLens3 and MotionWorks solutions.

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

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.

The Highest Quality Voice in its Class

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.

New 5 MP Front-Facing Camera Supports More Advanced Apps

With the new front-facing camera, you get built-in support for the latest positioning technology, Visible Light Communication (VLC) which allows you to track the location of shoppers and workers with compatible overhead LED lighting. 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.

Complete Cellular Network Flexibility With Single Device Simplicity

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. It 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.

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.

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

Improved 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.

Maximize Productivity With Enterprise Accessories

Unlike consumer smartphones, you get a full suite of backward compatible business-class accessories that make the TC52/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.
