TCL is announcing three new phones under its own brand name: the TCL 10 Pro, TCL 10L, and TCL 10 5G. It’s also showing off another folding phone prototype. It’s a big moment for the company, but potentially a big moment for Android. TCL’s entry represents a big brand aiming to bring high-quality phones into the sub-$500 category.

I used to have a TCL 5000, a phone with a 5000 mAh battery back when 3000mAh was above average. It had terrible battery life, had various bugs and missing features, and the performance was pretty bad. Even if their specs is impressive, I won’t buy anything from them.

Can't see it being $500-ish in Canada. I would only try one if the camera is any good and sounds like it might not be. I like the headphone jack but would about the sd card? Not interested in a fold phone so hope they don't make it.

Macro is often when the object is represented as 1:1 on the sensor, if you and shoot something that is close (like a plant) and most of it is visible it is called a closeup, or doe those "macro lenses" have a magnification that make the subject almost in scale 1:1 on the sensor? Edit: Headphone jack, yay! ... Oh, I'm old :-(

I don’t personally care about TCL smartphones, but more competition is indeed a good thing and I could see these being great for groups of people. Speaking of more competition being better... when are we going to see a new mainstream mobile OS? It’s still just iOS and Android... it would be really cool to see some serious competition there too.

The folding phone deal is just a fad which will eventually fade away. Unless they are eventually able to solve the issues with the overall durability of these phones. Otherwise the phones look just like everything else out there on the market.

Almost all of TCL's phones up to this point have had LCD screens. I would be surprised if these phones did NOT have LCD screens. To me, LCD screens on a phone are a no go mainly because they drain the battery quite a bit faster than AMOLED screens. I recently switched from a phone with an LCD screen and one with an AMOLED screen and the battery life difference is massive (almost double). Much of that has to do with updated SOC in the new phone but I know the AMOLED screen has a lot to do with it as well.

We have no specs, no performance stats, no camera tests, and no price, so is there a point about asking about it? If we are talking under $500 or even around $400, might as well get Pixel 3a/4a, previous year Samsung Galaxy S phone or OnePlus.
