The All-in-One TEY1A And TEY2A GMS-Certified Slot-in PCs Bring More Consistency and Security to Your Education and Workplace Collaborations

EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS, 8 JUNE 2023 - BenQ, a global leader in display solutions, introduces the TEY1A and TEY2A, its new line of Google Mobile Services (GMS)-certified slot-in PCs for the BenQ Boards. Schools and businesses can use the all-in-one TEY1A and TEY2A systems to upgrade the computing capacity of their existing BenQ Boards, enhance their device security measures, and access the official Google Play Store and GMS tools for education and workplace collaboration.

The TEY1A comes with a powerful industry-leading 8-core processor that ensures a smooth experience while using the board. It runs on Android 13, while the TEY2A runs on Android 12. The slot-in PCs offer several connectivity options including USB 3.0 Type-A and C, HDMI, audio in and out, Wi-Fi 6, and Gigabit Ethernet.

Officially part of the Google Enterprise Devices Licensing Agreement (EDLA), both slot-in PCs come with their own optimised operating system, which is preloaded with the official Google Play Store, giving users access to all applications available on the platform directly from their BenQ Board. The TEY1A and TEY2A also come with Google’s core applications, including Google Drive, Chrome, and YouTube. Users can utilise the system’s duo windows feature, which allows them to open two apps side-by-side for more efficient workflows.

The slot-in PCs have a native Android interface with multiple customisable home screens, a permanent dock at the bottom for the most-used apps, as well as draggable apps, folders, and widgets. The default home screen also has the Google Search bar for quick and easy queries online.

Users concerned about application security can rely on the TEY1A and TEY2A as both slot-in PCs have the official Google Play store. All applications that are downloaded and installed from Google Play are vetted through Google Play Protect, which checks apps for malicious behaviour and may also deactivate and remove them from the device.

The Google-based system also offers features such as text-to-speech, multilingual translation, and optical character recognition (OCR) designed for better accessibility.

In Europe, TEY1A will be available from August 2023, and TEY2A from September 2023.
