TCL Mobile first announced the 20 series devices back at CES, but now they’re headed to Australia. The 20 Series smartphones represent great performance at a really affordable price point and the 20 5G is one of the cheapest 5G-enabled devices on the market.
These offer a major upgrade to the existing smartphone range in the entry level and mid-tier smartphone categories. For less than $500 you can get a 20 Series 5G, while the 20 SE packs a punch at just $299 while still incorporating many of TCL’s display technologies and features.
Following TCL’s initial foray into the mid-market last year, the latest 20 Series of smartphones builds upon its premium yet affordable range. In addition to delivering 5G connectivity, the range features the next generation of TCL’s proprietary display and camera technology with NXTVISION 2.0, offering improved SDR to HDR conversion, enhanced colour calibration and more eye safety features.
“Following our successful launch of the TCL Mobile brand with our 10 Series range of smartphones, we looked to continue the strong momentum into 2021 by offering premium quality smartphone features to consumers that includes proprietary technology to bring our ‘Display Greatness’ mantra to life.
Our launch today is the start of an aggressive roadmap through the rest of 2021 and beyond, from new smartphones to tablets and wearables that we are excited to bring to Australia as the TCL brand cements itself as a high quality, high performance and affordable brand consumers can rely on.”
