Those who pay close attention to smartphones and their announcements know that devices are much more than just a set of bullet point specifications. TCL phones are a testament to these oft-overlooked features in phones.

For instance, the phone displays feature NXTVISION technology for more accurate color, contrast and clarity. Additional details include Hi-Res Audio, dual speaker design, AI for the cameras, and reverse charging.

Availability and pricing has not been announced for US market just yet, but the two phones are now available in Italy for 299EUR (TCL 20 5G) and 149EUR (TCL 20 SE). This would convert to roughly $365 and $180, respectively.

Looking ahead, TCL plans to introduce a TCL 20 Pro 5G, TCL 20S, and TCL 20L. The brand suggests that at least two models are set to hit the US but did not specify as to which.
