TCL’s 20 5G Is €100 Cheaper Than its Predecessor

[CES 2021] TCL announces TCL 20 5G and TCL 20 SE

This Monday (11), during CES 2021, TCL presented its new line of Series 20 cell phones.

TCL 20 5G and 20 SE are the successors of the last year's TCL 10 series smartphones.

That's the first of TCL's 20 series, with the second being a 4G model arriving in the TCL 20 SE, a slightly larger 6.82 inch phone though with a lower resolution display on top of a 5000mAh battery. You get a 48MP primary camera alongside two 2MP modules for macro shots and depth data.

The TCL 20 SE is the inferior version of the TCL 20 5G but has a bigger screen. TCL isn't providing information now about USA availability or pricing, only that "some" of the five 20-series phones it will announce this year will come to the US.

In the optics department, the TCL 20 SE sports a quad read camera setup led by a 48MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture. It packs a 4,500mAh battery with support for 18W Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0+. The company has now announced the TCL 20 5G and the TCL 20 SE with enhanced NXTVISION 2.0 display technology. That said, the camera situation is a bit odd: depending on the model you but, you'll get either a 48-megapixel, f/2.0 main camera or a 16-megapixel shooter with larger sensor pixels and an f/1.8 aperture, along with a 5-megapixel wide camera, a 2-megapixel macro, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

The 1S will be available in "select markets around the world" starting in February 2021 with a European RRP of €109 in Elegant Black and Twilight Blue colours.

The tablet itself has a 5,500mAh battery, as well as a 5MP front camera and 8MP rear camera. This is paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB eMMC or 128GB UFS 2.1 storage that can be expanded by microSD (up to 256GB).

"NXTPAPER is a prime example of the Display Greatness philosophy that TCL Mobile has embodied since it launched over a year ago, and showcases how a vertically integrated ecosystem can help produce innovative new products quickly and affordably", he said. There is a dedicated Google Assistant button, too, for some reason.

In addition to the three budget phones, TCL is also bringing a budget Alcatel tablet called the Alcatel 1T 7 Wi-Fi. Upfront, it has an 8MP selfie camera.

Speaking to Mobile News, Streit and TCL senior product manager for the United Kingdom and northern Europe Patrick Power discussed TCL's debut year with its own-brand devices.

Stunning video performance is delivered via a 6.82-inch, V notch display with 90 percent screen-tobody ratio for a maximized viewing experience, along with a 20.5:9 screen ratio which provides broad, cinematic-like viewing performance in a slim form factor.
