HONG KONG, April 14, 2021 – TCL, one of the world’s best-selling consumer electronics brands and leading technology companies, unveiled its three new 20 Series smartphones at its worldwide press event today. The trio of mobile devices — the TCL 20 Pro 5G, TCL 20L+ and the TCL 20L — join the TCL 20 5G and TCL 20 SE announced earlier this year at CES 2021, reinforcing the company’s winning value, performance and innovation propositions in a variety of affordable price points. These core benefits and new technologies provide users with an elevated, yet affordable, mobile experience whether you’re at home or on the go.
“Our new 20 Series smartphones are outstanding examples of how TCL continues to deliver innovative technologies created to meet and exceed the needs of consumers,” said Stefan Streit, General Manager of Global Marketing at TCL Communication. “We’re constantly developing new mobile offerings designed to enhance the connection you have with your smartphone, especially while staying connected in a virtual or socially distanced world.”
Visual enhancement, which is featured throughout the lineup, is delivered by TCL’s advanced display optimization technology, NXTVISION. This proprietary experience showcases sharper details and greater contrast to enhance your real-life visual experience. NXTVISION also offers elevated levels of eye protection to reduce eye strain and blue light.
The whole lineup of 20 Series, have been verified by Google™ as Android Enterprise Recommended devices. TCL joins a select group of notable companies with devices recommended by Google for business use. Android Enterprise Recommended establishes best practices and common requirements, backed by a rigorous testing process, conducted by Google. Every Android Enterprise Recommended device is verified against enterprise grade requirements for performance, consistency and security updates.
TCL 20 Pro 5G – The Best TCL Phone To-Date, Powered by NXTVISION 2.0
The TCL 20 Pro 5G is designed for style-conscious consumers seeking advanced features and superb performance. In addition to 5G connectivity, it offers several display and camera upgrades designed to take the user experience to new heights.
Featuring a curved 6.67-inch AMOLED display, the TCL 20 Pro 5G offers a truly immersive viewing experience thanks to TCL’s all-new NXTVISION 2.0 Intelligent Display technology powered by Pixelworks. The second-generation proprietary tech provides industry-leading color accuracy, and the improved AI visual enhancement recognizes on-screen content and scenes and automatically adjusts the color, contrast and sharpness for more accurate and adaptive calibration. The TCL 20 Pro 5G also supports HDR10 playback for streaming TV series, documentaries and films on Netflix.
Independent third-party test lab DXOMARK recently tested the TCL 20 Pro 5G and gave it a display rating of 89, driven by the advancements of NXTVISION. This positions the phone among the top mobile competitors, some costing more than twice as much.
Along with the optimized display technology, the TCL 20 Pro 5G boasts a quad rear camera array, complete with Sony IMX main sensor, as well as lenses for ultra-wide, macro and depth sensors and an HDR-enabled 32MP front camera. Shooting professional-looking photos of family and friends is a snap with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), ensuring smooth, crisp images in high resolution detail. Additionally, Backlight Selfie eliminates washed-out photos when the sun is behind you or you’re in the shade, so you can present yourself and your friends in the very best light possible.
The smartphone provides well over a full day of power and wireless charging, and the fast charging tech makes it easy to quickly top off if you’re starting to get low. There’s also 256GB internal storage and microSD capacity of up to 1TB, more than enough to store plenty of images and high-resolution videos without the need to constantly delete content.
The TCL 20 Pro 5G will be available starting tomorrow in the United Kingdom, Italy and Portugal for €549, and will be rolling out around the world in the coming weeks in Marine Blue and Moondust Gray. Pricing will vary by market.
Two accessories designed to work specifically with the TCL 20 Pro 5G were also announced today. The transparent edge flip cover protects the phone from scratches and other damage, while also serving as a horizontal stand for videos or video calls. Additionally, the TCL MOVEAUDIO S600 wireless headphones, which offer Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling and superior in-ear fit for all-day comfort, are now available in a new color, Moondust Gray, to match the TCL 20 Pro 5G. Its Super Bluetooth feature pushes the limits of audio-streaming by connecting up to four Bluetooth devices so that you can share music with friends at the same time anywhere you like.
TCL 20L+ – Advanced Photography and Aesthetic Design
Complementing the TCL 20 Pro 5G, the TCL 20L+ stands out for its display, advanced photographic features and dazzling starlight design. The TCL 20L+ is the very first phone to come with TÜV Rheinland-certified Circular Polarization Display technology, which allows you to see your display perfectly, in natural colors, while wearing sunglasses on a hot summer day. Featuring a large HD+ screen, TCL 20L+ allows you to watch content like movies and TV shows in full detail with NXTVISION display optimization.
Ideal for aspiring photographers on a budget, the TCL 20L+ has a high-definition 64MP quad camera that provides optimal clarity and color reproduction. There’s also a Backlight Selfie cam and Super Night mode, so you can present yourself and your friends in the best possible light.
The back panel features more than a million prismatic crystal pits to create a dazzling, light-reflective surface inspired by the Milky Way. It’s also resistant to fingerprints and scratches, proving that beauty and durability can co-exist.
The TCL 20L+ will be available starting tomorrow in the United Kingdom, Italy and Portugal for €269, and will be rolling out to select regions around the world in the coming weeks in Milky Way Grey and North Star Blue. The TCL 20S, a regional exclusive with similar design and features to the 20L+, will be coming to North America soon as well.
TCL 20L – Immersive Display and Sustained Battery Life
The TCL 20L is a budget friendly, value-packed phone with a beautiful 6.67 inch screen and TÜV Rheinland-certified Circular Polarization Display technology. The device can last two days in typical use so you don’t have to worry about being stuck somewhere without power. It also comes with fast-charging capabilities that are optimized by our built-in Smart Manager, which offers suggestions for fantastic performance and battery life.
