After launching last year the first mobile phone under its own brand in the international market, the TCL Plex, TCL had planned to present during MWC a new batch of phones that were finally delayed until April. It was the TCL 10 Series, which initially left us with three new models: the TCL 10L, the TCL 10 Pro, and the TCL 10 5G.
Now that family has expanded with two more new members: the TCL 10 Plus and the TCL 10 SE, both introduced in Russia. The former shares much of the TCL 10L’s features, including the quad-camera and Snapdragon 665, but grows in screen and battery size; the second, meanwhile, is postulated as the most affordable and modest option in the TCL 10 Series.

TCL 10 Plus: now bigger
The new TCL 10 Plus, as we said, shares most of the specifications with the TCL 10L, but with an important difference: instead of the LTPS LCD panel, it mounts a 6.47-inch curved AMOLED screen with FullHD + resolution, support for HDR10 +, the company’s NXTVISION technology and integrated fingerprint reader.
It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 665, which is accompanied by up to 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of expandable internal storage with a microSD card and Android 10 operating system. In addition, it has a 4,500 mAh battery with support for fast charging and reverse charge.
On the front, we find a 16 MP front camera, while on the back, it incorporates a quad camera consisting of a 48 MP main sensor, an 8 MP wide angle, a 2 MP sensor for macro photography and a 2 MP depth sensor.
TCL 10 SE: cut in benefits
The TCL 10 SE, for its part, is positioned as the most economical and modest model of the company. In addition to a 6.52-inch HD LCD panel with NXTVISION technology, it includes MediaTek’s Helio P22 processor along with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable internal storage.
It also has the Android 10 operating system, a rear fingerprint reader and a 4,000 mAh battery with support for fast charging and reverse charging. In the photographic section, it has an 8 MP front camera and a triple rear camera composed of: a main sensor of 48 MP, a wide angle of 5 MP and a third sensor of 2 MP.
Versions and price of the TCL 10 Plus and TCL 10 SE
Both the TCL 10 Plus and the TCL 10 SE will be marketed in two different colors each ; The budget model will be available in a single 4GB / 64GB configuration, but the TCL 10 Plus can be purchased in different variants based on RAM and storage.
