This is our first look at the TCL 20 5G

TCL, the popular TV manufacturer, has been trying to establish itself as a smartphone brand for consumers in North America for quite some time. In April 2020, they announced three new mid-range smartphones namely TCL 10, TCL 10L, and the TCL 10 5G, all of which are priced under $500. The TCL 10 5G, powered by Snapdragon 765G, was also made available in the U.S. last month through Verizon for only $399. And now, we learn about its successor — the TCL 20 5G — as fresh leak crops up on the internet.

Seasoned leaker Evan Blass has shared the first look of the TCL 20 5G (model number T781) on his Voice account. While its name indicates the TCL 20 5G to be a successor of the TCL 10 5G, Blass claims otherwise. He suggests that the upcoming smartphone could instead succeed the TCL Plex from September 2019.


Apart from the images that depict the front and the back of the purported TCL 20 5G, the leaker has also exposed some key specifications. He reveals that the smartphone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest mid-range 5G chip — the Snapdragon 690. In addition, the device comes with 6GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. Further, it is likely to be equipped with a 4500mAh battery.

Blass also tips on the resolutions of each of the three rear cameras — including a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2MP macro sensor. On the front, there is an 8MP camera sitting inside the hole-punch cutout in the 6.77-inch display that features a Full HD+ resolution.

The volume button and power button-cum-fingerprint scanner lie on the right side of the phone, while a dedicated Google Assistant button and the SIM tray are placed on the left side. A single speaker and a USB Type-C jack are located at the bottom, while a headphone jack is placed on the top.

Lastly, Blass says that the TCL 20 5G is expected to arrive in early 2021.
