TCL 10 5G gets certified by the FCC with support for mmWave 5G, likely on Verizon
Chinese OEM TCL unveiled the TCL 10 series earlier this year in April, featuring three new devices — the TCL 10L, TCL 10 Pro, and TCL 10 5G. At the time, the company had announced the pricing and availability details for the TCL 10L and TCL 10 Pro in the U.S., however, the company had said that the TCL 10 5G would be released in the U.S. at a later date. Almost five months down the line, it seems like TCL is finally ready to launch the TCL 10 5G in the U.S. as the device has been now been spotted in an FCC certification listing with the model number TCL T790S.
We can confirm that the recently certified device is the TCL 10 5G, as a device with the model number T790S is listed as a variant of the TCL 10 5G on the Bluetooth SIG website. The FCC listing also includes a diagram that further confirms that it’s the TCL 10 5G. In case you’re not familiar with the device, the TCL 10 5G is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G powered mid-range smartphone, which features a 6.53-inch FHD+ display with a hole-punch cutout for the selfie camera.
The device comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and it packs in a 4,500mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. In the camera department, the TCL 10 5G features a quad-camera setup on the back, with a 64MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 5MP macro sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor. Over on the front, the device features a single 16MP selfie shooter. The smartphone runs TCL UI based on Android 10 out of the box and it’s priced at €399 in Europe.
Along with the diagram showcasing the TCL 10 5G’s design, the FCC listing includes an image that highlights its dimensions and the location of the mmWave antennas. The listing further reveals that the device will support 5G NR on bands n2, n5, and n66 (all sub-6GHz), along with n260 and n261 (mmWave). It’s also worth noting that since Verizon is the only major carrier in the U.S. still heavily marketing phones with mmWave on its network, we believe that the TCL 10 5G is headed to the carrier.
