Chinese electronics giant TCL has quietly announced a new entry-level smartphone known as the TCL 30 SE in the global market where the phone carries an affordable starting price of around US$213 (according to AliExpress).
For starter, the TCL 30 SE builds around a 6.52” IPS NXTVISION display that offers a HD+ screen resolution along with a modest 60Hz refresh rate. Other than that, you can also find an 8 megapixels front-facing camera for selfie and video calls.
The back of the phone has a total of three cameras stacked vertically within a rectangular camera module. These cameras include a 50 megapixels main camera, 2 megapixels macro camera, as well as a 2 megapixels depth sensor.
Under the hood, the TCL 30 SE is driven by an octa-core MediaTek Helio G25 chipset which will be paired with 4GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage that can be further expanded by up to 512GB via a microSD card.
To power the phone throughout the day, it’s fitted with a massive 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast-charging support. Apart from that, other noteworthy features accompanying the device also include the presence of a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Software-wise, the TCL 30 SE is shipped with TCL UI based on the latest Android 12 OS out of the box. Those who’re interested can pick the phone in two different colorways such as Space Grey and Atlantic Blue.
