After the leaks that gave us an idea of what was to come, the presentation event of the new members of the TCL 20 family has taken place, which are added to the TCL 20 5G and TCL 20 SE that we were able to meet at the beginning. of year. This time it is the TCL 20 Pro and TCL 20L , terminals that are located in the high and mid-range respectively.
The models have important differences between them that can make us choose one or the other model, putting the focus on the screen, cameras and of course the price of both devices. We go on to know all the aspects that make these new smartphones count and what will allow them to stand up to other recognized brands.
Features of the TCL 20 Pro, the series leader
To start getting to know this Pro model, the OLED NEXTVISION screen that the company itself develops has been revealed and leaves no one indifferent. With an average of 6.67 inches and Full HD + and HDR10 resolution, which opts for the hole in the central part of the screen to make way for its selfie camera. We also look at the curve that takes the content from edge to edge of the screen with an image that promises to be surprising.
Inside the device we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor , which we have seen on several occasions, leaving more than satisfactory results for the best terminals. It comes in a single option 6 GB of RAM with 256 GB of storage, which can be expanded with a MicroSD of up to 1 TB.
In terms of connectivity, the TCL 20 Pro is armed with everything you need, highlighting of course the 5G connection, but without forgetting Bluetooth 5, NFC and USB Type-C. It also incorporates a fingerprint reader under the screen, which we can configure with the help of the light layer of TCL UI customization on Android 11. Inside the battery is 4,500 mAh along with fast charging of 18W and wireless charging of 15W , in addition protection IP52.
Cameras to bring out the photographer in you
The photographic section is a very important point for the firm and for this reason it has been given special treatment, using the 48 Mpx of the main camera , 16 Mpx in the wide angle that accompanies it, as well as a third 5 Mpx lens for macro mode and an extra 2 Mpx that achieve a defined portrait mode.
Video recording consists of an electric image stabilizer and 4K maximum resolution. Ahead, the hole in the screen gives way to the 32 Mpx of the selfie camera , which promises creative possibilities and the necessary sharpness in all kinds of situations with support for HDR.
All about the TCL 20L, a new rival for the mid-range
Within the mid-range rivalry is more than served and now it will be a little more so with the arrival of the TCL 20 L, a device that boasts a 6.67-inch LCD screen . With a somewhat more modest construction, it integrates the electro fingerprint on the side of the device, but keeps the hole in the front of the screen.
It has also been made known that this model has the Snapdragon 662 , which is accompanied by 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory that could be expanded using a MicroSD. One of the strengths of this model has been in the speakers, where we enter with stereo speakers that allow us a clear sound and according to our needs to take advantage of the multimedia content on its large screen.
The cameras are not far behind with respect to the Pro model, as we also have a quadruple rear camera in the TCL 20L with 48 Mpx in the main sensor and creative possibilities thanks to the 8 Mpx wide angle, completed with two 2 Mpx lenses that work in portrait and macro mode. On the front there are 16Mpx that this time are integrated into the hole for the selfie camera.
In this case we do not have 5G connectivity, but we do have LTE, 3.5 mm jack connection, NFC to make mobile payments and Bluetooth 5 together with the IP52 certification. Inside Android 11 and the TCL UI layer are the ones that will not allow to take advantage of the optimization in a 5,000 mAh battery with 10W fast charge.
TCL 20L +, the difference is in memory
Finally, the manufacturer has presented an added model that shares all its characteristics with the TCL 20L but a plus is added that serves to change the 48 Mpx for 64 Mpx and identify it with 6 and 128GB of storage, without the 4 GB option of RAM that if it has the TCL 20L model and that it will reach other markets.
Price and availability of the TCL 20 Pro and TCL 20L
The new TCL models will go on sale very soon, although we do not have a date marked on the calendar yet. On the one hand, the TCL 20 Pro will come in “Moondust Gray” and “Marine Blue” colors, while the TCL 20L will come in “Eclipse Black” and “Luna Blue” colors. The prices at which we can find each model are the following:
- TCL 20 Pro: From 549 euros
- TCL 20L: From 229 euros
- TCL 20L +: From 269 euros
TCL Fold ‘n Roll, the mobile that becomes a tablet
At the TCL presentation, we have also had the chance to meet a new device called TCL Fold ‘n Roll, which plays with the possibilities of screens at a different level than folding mobiles do. In this case we can fold it, open it and extend it, which for now is only a concept and will not be put on sale.
The screen can be extended up to 10 inches , going from being a 6.87-inch mobile and then a 8.85-inch terminal. A concept that tries to prepare us for what is to come, where the screen seems to be the protagonist and TCL is already working on it.
