TCL 20 Pro 5G


The TCL 20 Pro 5G retails for $499.99 unlocked and is available to purchase on Amazon. The most premium 20-series TCL phone has a glossy, stylish yet conservative design, which looks great. An in-display fingerprint scanner is present and the phone is offered in the Moondust Gray and Marine Blue colors.

The screen of the 20 Pro 5G is a 6.67-inch AMOLED FHD+ panel. Unfortunately, TCL stuck with a 60Hz refresh rate for the screen, which seems a bit outdated when compared to other 2021 smartphones in the 20 Pro 5G’s price category.

Performance-wise, a Snapdragon 750G processor is used, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. A headphone jack and expandable storage of up to 1TB are present in the TCL 20 Pro 5G.

The 20SE features a 2.5D curved glass display with a teardrop-style notch. The fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the phone.

An LCD 6.82-inch HD+ panel with 60Hz refresh rate is used in the TCL 20SE. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 460 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The 20SE comes with expandable storage and a headphone jack.

Both the earbuds and the case are made out of plastic and are offered in colors - Graphite Gray, Pure Marble, Silver Chrome and Turquoise Blue.
