After giving us a sneak peak of their 2020 10 series lineup at CES, TCL has today announced pricing and availability for the hot new range which includes a flagship level 5G option.
The range includes the TCL 10L, TCL 10 Pro and TCL 10 5G all three set to arrive in Australia soon.
TCL is showing off their new range of high-resolution displays with the 10 series, all of which include their NXTVISION visual technology – which TCL says is ‘a proprietary advanced display and camera visual technology to bring images to life with truer color, clarity and contrast enhancements in real-time‘.
TCL has included an SDR to HDR real-time conversion feature in the display which TCL says provides HDR-like video enhancement. Bottom line, these phones will make content look brilliant.
The internals of all three models include high-end Qualcomm processors, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage (64GB option for 10L). The 10 series have big batteries with 4,000mAh for the 10L, while the 10 Pro and 10 5G get massive 4,500mAh batteries.
As with most phone launches the camera will be key and TCL is coming out with guns blazing in the photography specs with the 10 series, including a quad-camera array on all three phones.
The TCL 10L includes a big 48MP main sensor, as well as an 8MP super-wide sensor, as well as depth and macro sensors. The TCL 10Pro and 10 5G both get massive 64MP main sensors, with the 10 Pro getting a 123-degree wide-angle while the 10 5G gets a 118-degree wide-angle. There’s also a macro lens on both models and portrait sensors as well.

TCL will launch all three phones with Android 10 running TCL UI over the top. TCL has included a number of easy-to-use features including a ‘lively interfaces, intuitive interaction and customizable features for additional ease of use.’
The TCL 10L has been announced in two colour options, ArcticWhite and Mariana Blue which includes a glossy 3D back cover. The 3D pattern on the rear looks fantastic in Trev’s hands-on with the phones from CES and I can’t wait to see it in the flesh.
The TCL 10 Pro gets a dual-sided 3D glass for the rear with a gradient pattern in either Ember Gray or Forest Mist Green colouring.
Finally the TCL 10 5G in either Chrome Blue or Mercury Gray with 3D rear glass featuring a fingerprint-resistant coating and gradient printing UV printed texture.
TCL Australia has advised we can expect the TCL 10L and TCL 10 Pro in Q2, with the TCL 10L priced at $499, while the TCL 10 Pro is priced at a particularly sharpish $899. We’ll get more details on where you can pick up the phones when they arrive in stores.
