If you’re still thinking of TCL as the television people, you need to expand your expectations. They’ve been putting out impressive budget-friendly Android phones for a few years now, and they’re adding 5G and refreshed cameras, as well as updates to their NXTPAPER tablet line. Plus, they’ve shown off some proof of concepts that indicate they’re not done innovating yet!

Lineup of TCL series phones

First, let’s look at the slew of TCL 30 series phones heading to Europe. They’re releasing the TCL 30 5G, TCL 30+, and TCL 30, all with a 6.7″ screen, while the TCL 30 SE and the TCL 30 E will have a 6.52″  mini-notch display.

All the phones have NXTVISION, so you’ll have a sharp and clear viewing experience. TCL 30 SE and 30E offer a 5000mAh battery, while TCL 30 5G, 30+, and 30 all offer a 5010mAh battery, but no matter which, you’re getting plenty of juice for all day.

All the new 30-series phones offer a 50-megapixel AI triple camera, so you’ll easily snag a good shot, and the 30 5G and 30+ also add in a wide-angle front-facing camera for better group selfie shots.
