TCL launches 5G smartphone for less than $500


TCL announced at CES 2020, in January, three new smartphones in the TCL 10 line, but only now reveals its prices and complete specifications. The manufacturer has important features, such as four cameras at the rear, but also a model compatible with 5G.

Despite being the most modest, the TCL 10L has beautiful looks and colors. At the rear, there is a set of four cameras and two LEDs, one on each side, in addition to the fingerprint reader.

The body of this model is made of plastic and its specifications include a Snapdragon 665 and options up to 6 GB of RAM with 128 GB of storage. It should also leave the factories with Android 10 installed.
