With Christmas approaching fast, electronics giant TCL has announced a slew of new goodies that will fit in under anyone’s Christmas tree this year.
TCL is announcing five new devices today, including the new TCL MOVEAUDIO range which includes three TWS buds, the TCL TAB 10S 2022, a 10-inch tablet with an IPS display and the TCL 20B phone which includes a 6.52” NXTVISION display.
The launch today caps off a massive six months for TCL, which has launched 11 products in the market according to TCL Channel Manager Joseph Corrente. Speaking about the launch today, Mr Corrente said
“Launching our first TCL tablet and a new range of audio is a natural progression for us in Australia, complementing our robust range of smartphones and other innovative devices that are already readily available via our retail and carrier partners. Our goal is to create an ecosystem of connected experiences which simplifies the lives of Australian consumers, pushing the envelope while always keeping value top of mind.”
TCL TAB 10S 2022
The big ticket item for the launch is the new TCL TAB 10S 2022, their first launch locally of a TCL branded tablet.
The TCL TAB 10S offers a functional, and good looking device that offers a large FullHD+ (1200×1920) resolution IPS display with an octa-core processor, 64GB of onboard storage (expandable with microSD card) and a big 8,000mAh battery for all day use.
There’s front (5MP) and rear (8MP) cameras on-board for video conferencing or taking shots, as well as a dual-microphone and dual speaker system for improved audio when you’re watching movies, or in a video call.
A massive plus for productivity and protection, is the inclusion of a Flip protective case and Stylus Pen. The case will keep the tablet safe from any day-to-day bumps, while the stylus allows for greater productivity, or even just a lot more fun for the kids to try out some digital drawing.
The TCL TAB 10S 2022 can be purchased through Big W, Bing Lee and Mobileciti, as well as Amazon, eBay, Allphones, Dick Smith and other online channels for $399.
Into more familiar territory for TCL, who’ve made a big splash in the local mobile phone market with their well priced, functional and great looking phones. The latest phone to launch is the TCL 20B, a sub-$250 phone that’s sure to please.
The phone features a 20:9 aspect ratio 6.52” HD+ resolution display with a mini-Notch that uses TCL’s brilliant NXTVISION technology. The NXTVISION displays are extremely easy to look at and delivers amazing image contrast, sharpness and colours.
With an ultra-thin and ultra-light design, the TCL 20B is easy to carry, and slips into a bag or pocket easily. It still includes an octa-core processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage which can be expanded with microSD cards.
While the phone is priced to sell, there’s still a 50MP camera rear camera with AI-boosted portrait for excellent Bokeh, as an intelligent night mode and Smart HDR which stacks images for photos with amazing colour, lighting and details.
The phone includes a 4,000mAh ‘all-day’ battery which lasts up to 19 hours on just video playback and can be topped up quickly with 18W fast charging able to top you up quickly when you need.
If you’re looking to get your hands on the TCL 20B, you can find it for $249 from JB Hi-Fi, Big W and Mobileciti, or online through Amazon, eBay, Allphones, Dick Smith and other online channels.
Finally, there’s a new range of Totally Wireless Stereo (TWS) buds from TCL offering a true wireless audio experience for everyone. There are three models in the new range, the S150,SOCL500TWS buds and S600 earbuds with prices to suit all budgets. The new range offers long lasting battery life and pair perfectly with TCL phones, or any bluetooth capable device.
Kicking off the range are the budget friendly S150 TWS buds, which start at just $69, but aren’t short on value.
The S150 are IPX4 water resistant so you can work out in them and include large 13mm dynamic coil speakers for great sound. They pair to devices with dual Bluetooth 5.0 connections for a clear, uninterrupted signal and low-latency.
The buds include Digital Signal Processing (DSP) for noise cancelling, letting you take calls with a minimum of interference, optimising your voice and reducing background noise at the same time.
There’s touch controls included on the buds, with options for taps or swiping to play or pause music, as well as switch to the next track – or activate your voice assistant.
You can listen all day on the S150 buds, with up to 3.5 hours listening time in the buds, which can be topped up with up to 20 hours of charge included in the charging case.
In the mid-range, TCL are now offering the SOCL50, more conveniently called the Social 500, TWS buds, which are priced at a wallet friendly $129.
The mid-ranbge buds include 5.8mm speaker drivers that offer rich bass and echo cancellation for clear sound. They’re designed for comfort so you can wear them all day, and include excellent in-ear noise isolation and are IPX4 rated for sweat and water resistance.
The buds include a 26-hour playtime, with 6.5 hours of continuous playback in the buds and a further 19.5 hours included in the charging case. The case can quickly top up your buds too, with a 15 minute charge offering up to 1 hour of playback.
If you want some choice in colours, the SOCL500 also offer a choice of Blue, Black or Red.
Lastly, the MOVEAUDIO S600 TWS buds offer the highest quality of the range, with a bunch of features you’d associate with high-end audio.
Starting with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), the buds can be used in the loudest environments and reduce background noise for clear audio. There’s also a Transparency mode letting you hear what’s going on around you without having to remove the buds.
TCL has also included a sensor on board which automatically pauses or restarts your audio when you remove or replace the earbud in your ear.
While the buds include touch (tap and swipe) controls, you can also operate them without touch using Voice Control to connect with the Assistant on your phone
The buds include a massive 40 hours of battery life, with 8hours listening time in the buds, and 32 hours of battery life with the included case.
For gamers, or anyone wanting to ensure low-latency, the S600’s offer as low as 100ms and connect with dual Bluetooth to ensure a solid connection.
If you want to modify any of the settings on-board, an app is available to let you modify ANC, Transparency mode, touch controls and more.
The TCL MOVEAUDIO range is available now for $69, $129 and $199 for the S150, SOCL500 and S600 earbuds respectively. The earbuds will be available through Mobileciti and other online channels including Amazon, eBay, Allphones and Dick Smith.
