TCL Communications has already launched TCL Plex in the Philippines.
TCL Plex has the in-house display technology which they call NXTVISION. What it does to the device is to optimize and enhance the real-time display and level-up the camera experience.
TCL is confident that their first smartphone released in the Philippines will be accepted by the consumer because they are already big in the display business. They are the no. 1 TV brand in China and no. 2 TV brands globally. TCL is confident that their first smartphone will not be the last because they already have developed a complete ecosystem of smart devices.
Now on the smartphone.
The TCL PLEX has a 6.53-inch screen with NXTVISION technology that has what TCL calls the “Dotch” punch-hole to mount its front camera, ending into a 90% screen-to-body ratio.
They mounted three cameras on the rear that include a 48MP main shooter, a 16MP f/2.4 ultra-wide, and 2MP low light sensor. For selfies, it features a 24MP f/2.0 shooter. There’s also a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Powering the TCL PLEX is a midrange Snapdragon 675 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 612 GPU. There’s a huge 6GB RAM which complements the equally huge internal storage of 128GB storage.
There’s a USB Type-C for fast charging and the 3.5mm audio jack is likewise present.
This huge smartphone with a Full HD display has a 3,820mAh non-removable battery with Quick Charge 3.0.
It will retail for P15,990 that comes with a free TCL 24-inch LED TV worth P7,995 on November 15, 2019.
