TCL plays Las Vegas with three cheap Android phones, a cheap tablet and augmented reality glasses

Chinese phone maker TCL didn’t go all the way to Las Vegas to see Santana in his Mandalay Bay mansion. Today, the company announced additions to his TCL 40 series, including his Android-powered TCL 40 R 5G, TCL 40 SE and TCL 408. Under the hood is MediaTek’s 7nm Dimensity 700 chipset. The 40 R 5G is a new variant of last year’s 40 R that supports 5G. In short, the phone features a 6.6 inch LCD display with 720 x 1612 HD+ resolution and 90Hz refresh rate.

The device is equipped with dual speakers and a long-lasting 5010 mAh battery. Also announced today, the TCL 408, at $129, is the lowest priced new handset released today. It has a 6.6-inch HD+ cinematic display, dual stereo speakers and 64 GB of native storage. The model, which is expected to launch in Asia and Europe this quarter, features a “hyper camera” that combines a 50-megapixel image sensor with a macro sensor to take better pictures.

On the back is a 50MP f/1.8 primary camera and a pair of his 2MP sensors, one for depth and one for the macro sensor used for extreme close-ups. There is an 8MP selfie front camera and the phone has a 5000mAh battery that can be charged at 15W (wired). The device has a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The TCL 40 SE was announced today and will be available in Europe in the first quarter, followed by other regions. The display is 6.75 inches with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. Configuration options include 4GB memory with 128GB storage and 6GB memory with 256GB storage.

According to TCL, all TCL 40 series phones are equipped with “HD+ NXTVISION display technology, long-lasting battery and 50MP AI camera to capture amazing things in every scene. Each device has , 5G for ultra-fast connectivity, powerful audio-visual experiences and ample storage for movie lovers, new camera hardware for photography enthusiasts, and more”. In addition to its incredibly cheap phones, TCL has also introduced low-cost Android tablets. The TCL Tab 8 LE (because it’s cheaper?) features an 8-inch HD+ display.

A quad-core chipset under the hood, 5-megapixel cameras on the front and back of the device, 32 GB of storage, and a microSD slot for additional storage. The tablet launched in the US this month, costs $159, and has a version with his LTE connectivity as an option. If you’re looking for a budget phone, consider the TCL 40 R 5G, TCL 40 SE, and TCL 408. All three phones offer features you wouldn’t expect from such a cheap phone.
