TCLâ€™s timing couldnâ€™t be better. In a world where premium smartphone sales are slumping, the company best known for affordable 4K TVs is turning its attention to much smaller displays at prices that make the OnePlus 7T Pro and Galaxy S10e look downright expensive. If it wasnâ€™t for TCLâ€™s glorious embrace of headphone jacks, in fact, you might confuse the companyâ€™s new phones for competing models costing four figures.
Of the three new TCL phones, only two of themâ€”the 10 Pro and the 10Lâ€”are coming to the U.S. at launch. The 10 5G â€œwill be available in select regions around the world later this year,â€� though TCL does have plans to bring it to the U.S. â€œfor under $500â€� by the fourth quarter of 2020.
