TCL Expands Smartphone Portfolio with 10-Series Lineup, Offering Premium Display Technology
Today, TCL Communication is officially debuting its first series of TCL-branded smartphones, the TCL 10 Series. This line-up of premium, yet affordable Android devices will leverage TCL-made high-resolution displays and the company’s NXTVISION visual technology, and each device will come with a high-quality quad rear-camera setup, Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors, and more flagship-style features; all available for under €450. The 10 Series includes TCL’s first 5G smartphone and the company’s first device that uses a TCL-made curved AMOLED display
“As one of the world’s leading consumer electronics brands, expanding the TCL brand into the mobile space ensures that we are one of the only global manufacturers that offers a fully integrated ecosystem of smart products in virtually every aspect of your life,” said Kevin Wang, CEO of TCL Industrial Holdings. “This makes it possible for us to provide our customers with a wide range of products capable of working seamlessly together and do so more affordably than everyone else.”
Embodying the company’s mission to “Display Greatness,” each of the TCL 10-Series smartphones takes advantage of TCL’s tightly integrated ecosystem by using TCL-built screens and TCL NXTVISION, a proprietary advanced display and camera visual technology to bring images to life with truer colour, clarity and contrast enhancements in real-time. TCL’s display technology generates cutting-edge colour accuracy so users cannot see a perceivable difference between real life and the images on the screen. The 10 Series also has an SDR to HDR real-time conversion feature, providing HDR-like video enhancement with brighter highlights, darker shadows, increased contrast and amplified colour.
TCL 10 5G: Bringing 5G Technology to More People
The company’s first 5G-enabled smartphone, the TCL 10 5G is designed to bring the benefits of 5G connectivity to consumers looking for something modern and affordable. Powered by SnapdragonTM 7-series 5G SoC, the TCL 10 5G delivers increased data bandwidth for faster uploads, downloads and upgraded Wi-Fi connection stability. The TCL 10 5G comes with a large, modern 6.53-inch FHD+ DotchTMdisplay, providing an impressive 91 percent screen-to-body ratio.
“The 5G era is now here around the world, and it is opening up a new round of technological revolution which will fundamentally enrich how we live our lives,” said Alex Katouzian, SVP and GM, Mobile, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Qualcomm Technologies and TCL have maintained a close and strong collaboration for a long time, and we are excited to see TCL select the Snapdragon 765 5G Mobile Platform for their very first 5G smartphone. The Snapdragon 765 integrates 5G connectivity and Artificial Intelligence, which will help TCL 10 5G bring remarkable 5G capabilities and life-changing experiences to more consumers worldwide.”
On the back, the TCL 10 5G sports a quad camera setup that includes a 64MP high resolution main camera, a 118-degree ultra-wide-angle camera, a macro camera that lets users take super close-up shots at only 2cm away, and a depth camera for professional quality photos with Bokeh. The TCL 10 5G’s front facing 16MP camera ups the selfie game with its 4-in-1 big pixel technology that automatically combines four pixels into one to produce brighter selfie photos and improves low-light capabilities.
Additionally, the TCL 10 5G comes with a large battery boasting a full day of phone use and Quick ChargeTM 3.0 fast charging technology. It also features OTG Reverse Charging, turning the phone into a portable power bank to charge small items or help a friend in need if their device is low on battery. The TCL 10 5G will be available in select regions around the world later this year for €399/£399.
