The TCL 10 Series of premium, affordable Android phones will feature TCL-made high-resolution displays and the company's NXTVISION visual technology, and each device will come with a quad rear-camera setup, and Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. 

The TCL 10 5G boasts 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. And the TCL 10 also has a 16MP front-facing camera.

The 10 Series will also include 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."

Proprietary screen tech

Each of the TCL 10-Series phones includes a TCL-built screen and TCL NXTVISION, a proprietary visual technology to bring images to life with truer color, clarity and contrast enhancements in real-time.

"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."

The TCL 10 Pro comes in Ember Gray and Forest Mist Green color options, and will be available in Europe, North America, Australia, and the United Kingdom starting in Q2 2020 for €449 EUR/$449 USD/£399 GBP/$899 AUD. And this will make it one of the most affordable 5G phones available.
