TCL 20 5G
Since this is a quiet lengthy article, we have added a table of contents for easier navigation.
The TCL 20 5G phone is currently the cheapest 5G handset by TCL and comes with a Snapdragon 690 chipset, coupled with 6GB RAM. On the front, there’s a 6.67” LCD Dotch Display, which is how TCL branded its panel with a punch hole for the 8MP selfie camera.
The resolution is Full HD+, with a tall 20:9 ratio, and according to press materials, it has a 91% screen-to-body ratio. Since the fingerprint can’t make it under the panel, TCL has put it on the right side, under the power key.
The setup on the back is aligned vertically and features a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide-angle shooter with 118-degree FoV, and a 2MP macro shooter.
Other highlights of the TCL 20 5G include a 4,500 mAh battery with 18W fast charging over Qualcomm’s QC 4+ standard. In addition to 5G with downlink speeds of up to 2.7 Gbps, you also get Bluetooth 5.1 and NFC.
