The smartphone industry is consistently growing and there are multiple manufacturers in the market. Presently, TCL is not a very popular name when it comes to smartphones. However, this company is not a newbie in the smartphone business. According to recent reports, the company is preparing another 5G smartphone. According to the first details of this device, the company names this device, TCL 20 5G. This smartphone will be the successor to the TCL 10 5G which was released back in July.
However, the first information on this phone does not seem like it is an upgrade. The model number (T781) and specs suggest that this device is a mid-range smartphone. According to recent leaks, this device will come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 690 SoC under the hood. This is a low-end mid-range chip.

On the front, we will have a 6.67-inch display with a 1080 x 2400 resolution (Full HD+). It uses a center punch-hole 8MP camera. Looking at the images, the punch-hole is quite small which is in line with current trends. For the fingerprint sensor, TCL 20 5G comes with a side fingerprint sensor which is embedded with the power button. In addition to the fingerprint sensor/power button, we also have the volume rockers on the right side. On the left, we have the Google Assistant button as well as the SIM card/microSD Card slot.
On the rear, we have a vertical triple camera setup that features a 48MP main camera. In addition, it also has an 8MP ultrawide sensor as well as a 2MP macro lens. Supporting the Snapdragon 690 processor will be 6GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage. This smartphone also comes with a decent 4,500 mAh battery.
According to speculations, the most probable launch date for the TCL 20 5G is early next year. Just like many other manufacturers have done, TCL will probably release this device online. Of course, the CES 2021 will not hold in the U.S. due to the coronavirus situation. This is exactly why we will most likely have an online launch event.
