During the ongoing CES 2021 tech show, electronics giant TCL has officially announced a pair of affordable 5G devices from the company’s next-generation TCL 20 series lineup.
TCL 20 5G
Starting with the highest-end model, we have the TCL 20 5G that boasts a pretty huge 6.67-inches FHD+ LCD Dotch Display which has a central hole-punch cutout with an 8 megapixels selfie camera.
Over at the back, the device comes with an elongated camera module which play host to a triple-camera system consisting of a 48 megapixels primary shooter, 8 megapixels ultra-wide lens with 118-degree FoV, as well as a 2 megapixels macro camera.
Moving on, the TCL 20 5G is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 690 chipset which carries support for 5G connectivity in both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes. It will also be offered with 6GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage which supports microSD card for memory expansion.
The device will draw power from a hefty 4,500mAh battery with 18W fast-charging support. Other than all these goodies, it also brings along a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, as well as Bluetooth 5.1 and NFC support.
In the European market, the TCL 20 5G is priced at €299 (US$363).
TCL 20 SE
Next, there’s also the more affordable TCL 20 SE targeted towards the budget segment. The device features a slightly larger 6.82-inches LCD display that comes with a toned-down HD+ screen resolution.
Under the hood, its powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 460 chipset alongside 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage that can be further expanded via a microSD card. Unlike the TCL 20 5G, the TCL 20 SE lacks 5G connectivity.
In the camera department, we can find a quad-camera setup at the back comprising of a 16 megapixels primary shooter, 5 megapixels ultra-wide lens, as well as a pair of 2 megapixels sensors for macro and depth information. This will be rounded out by an 8 megapixels unit at the front for selfies and video calls.
To keep its lights on, the device has a massive 5,000mAh battery which also supports up to 18W fast-charging. However, it will be shipped with a 10W power adapter out of the box. Interestingly, the device also supports NFC connectivity – which isn’t really a common feature among entry-level phones.
In the European market, the TCL 20 SE will retail at €149 (US$181).
