TCL Communication has announced the availability of the TCL 10 Pro and TCL 10L in Australia. The 10 Pro at $749 is a substantially lower price than the estimated $899 we were told a few months ago, making it even more value for money.

Part of the recently announced TCL 10-Series mid range line up of premium, feature-rich Android smartphones, the TCL 10 Pro and TCL 10L will leverage the company’s broader and extensive expertise in its own proprietary display technology to provide high-resolution displays, NXTVISION visual technology, quad rear-camera setup and more flagship-style features including TCL’s first curved AMOLED display.

Embodying the company’s mission to “Display Greatness,” each of the TCL 10-Series smartphones takes advantage of TCL’s tightly integrated ecosystem by using TCL-built screens and TCL NXTVISION, a proprietary advanced display and camera visual technology to bring images to life with truer colour, clarity and contrast enhancements in real-time.

TCL’s display technology generates cutting-edge colour accuracy so users cannot see a perceivable difference between real life and the images on the screen. The 10 Series also has an SDR to HDR real-time conversion feature, providing HDR-like video enhancement with brighter highlights, darker shadows, increased contrast and amplified colour.

“We are thrilled to be launching both the TCL 10 Pro and 10L in Australia as part of our bigger plans for the TCL brand in smartphones. We have leveraged our extensive experience and global success in display technology to deliver two highly featured phones we believe are best in class for their price and epitomise our commitment to Display Greatness,”

said Sam Skontos, VP and Regional Managing Director, South East Asia & Pacific, for TCL Mobile.

“Recent analyst data only reinforces our longstanding belief that consumers should have access to feature-rich smartphones that are well-priced. This is only amplified in this economic climate where Australians are becoming more budget conscious than ever before. This is where TCL smartphones can play a valuable role in the market, by delivering incredible value in the so-called ‘mid-tier’ category.”

“In the past decade my team and I have successfully built Alcatel into a trusted and successful brand locally, and we will now be working to achieve the same success for our TCL smartphones in the mid-tier market. We have an exciting roadmap and big plans, and believe the 10 Pro and 10L are outstanding options to announce our intentions.”

TCL 10 Pro: Taking NXTVISION to the Edge with TCL’s First Curved AMOLED Display

The TCL 10 Pro features a sleek, TCL-built 6.47-inch FHD+ curved AMOLED panel, which delivers sharp resolution and a wide range of colour clarity. Using a curved display also allows for reduced bezels, achieving a high screen-to-body ratio, and comes with Edge Bar shortcuts that users can quickly access one-handed.

An on-display fingerprint reader sits under the screen for rapidly unlocking the phone, while “On-The-Go Reverse Charging” allows it to top up another device such as other smartphones, headphones or smart-watches.

Through leveraging TCL’s NXTVISION technology to produce accurate colours as well as enhanced image and video quality, the TCL 10 Pro is one of a select group of smartphones that are Netflix-certified to stream HDR10 videos, opening up a wide range of HDR content.

AI-powered imaging technology in the TCL 10 Pro produces photos and selfies rich in clarity and colour in low light.

The 10 Pro comes with four rear cameras, including a 64MP high-res camera, 2.9μm big pixel low-light video cam, 123-degree super wide-angle camera and macro camera, as well as a 24MP front-facing camera.

Additionally, it features a hybrid auto focus solution for a fast and crisp shot day or night. For more creative videographers, the TCL 10 Pro includes super low light video and super wide-angle video capabilities for high-quality creative video content.

The device’s sophisticated curved design boasts perfectly symmetrical details, a matte finish on the back for a smooth in-hand feel and an anti-glare screen with a unified, sleek profile.

The TCL 10 Pro comes in Ember Gray and Forest Mist Green colour options, and will be available at JB Hi-Fi  and online at Officeworks from August 10 for $749.

TCL 10L:  NXTVISION Made Accessible for Everyone

The TCL 10L offers quality features for everyone. It is built with a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 665 processor paired with 6GB RAM and comes with an AI platform to provide optimal performance and low power consumption.

The TCL 10L’s 6.53-inch FHD+ DotchTM display delivers an immersive experience with a 91 percent screen-to-body ratio, and TCL’s NXTVISION technology with dedicated display engine lets users take visuals to the next level with truer colour accuracy and real-time visual enhancements for greater contrast and more crisp details.

Like the TCL 10 Pro, the TCL 10L also comes with four rear cameras, along with a 16MP front-facing camera, all powered by AI technology to enhance scenes and objects. For those with creative flair, the TCL 10L offers creative video modes allowing users to animate the inanimate with stop motion video, as well as capture super wide-angle video.

For peace of mind, it features a rear fingerprint sensor, as well as face unlock. The TCL 10L is designed with comfort and a premium in-hand feel in mind, with eye-catching holographic finishes and glossy, iridescent shine on the back, as well as sleek 3D backing.

It comes in nature-inspired Arctic White and Mariana Blue colour options, and will be available at JB Hi Fi and Officeworks (instore and online) from August 10 for $449.

TCL Smart Experiences: The New Standard for Smartphones

Leveraging TCL’s display expertise and fully integrated ecosystem, TCL 10-Series smartphones are packed with easy-to-use features and shortcuts so users can share content seamlessly and customise their smartphones to match their unique lifestyles:

  • Dynamic TCL UI: TCL knows everyone uses their phones differently. The TCL UI offers lively interfaces, intuitive interaction and customisable features for additional ease of use.
  • Eye Comfort Display: With the user’s vision health in mind, TCL makes it easy on the eyes with eye care modes such as Adaptive Tone, Reading Mode and Eye Comfort Mode to help provide the best viewing experience regardless of lighting conditions.
  • Smart Key: Access commonly used apps and features with a dedicated, customisable button. The button can be customisable in three ways – single, double, and long press – to activate apps such as the camera or Google Assistant, as well as functions such as cleaning up background apps.
  • Super Bluetooth: Push the limits of audio-streaming by connecting up to four Bluetooth speakers or headphones to share music with family for the ultimate (socially distanced) dance or silent disco party

Pricing & Availability

The TCL 10 Pro will be available for $749 at JB Hi-Fi and online at Officeworks from August 10. Ausdroid will be publishing a review of the TCL 10 Pro shortly.

Can’t find anything at JB or OW. Can’t even find a TCL mobile website.

Either I’m just stupid, or TCL really doesn’t want anyone in AU to even look at their phones.

So the official response is http://www.tclmobile.com.au is “coming soon”

No word yet on why the phones aren’t on retail websites or instore. Maybe the retailers are timing launch with a catalogue release?

SD675 for $750? No thanks TCL. Is this how they plan to penetrate our market?

Oppo is doing SD765G with 5G support, 8GB RAM, 128GB Storage, AMOLED screen, 30 watt fast charging etc…on the Find X2 Lite for the same price.

OLED isn’t an upgrade, its a category. High contrast and ability to be contorted into shapes but you sacrifice panel longevity and ability to use high brightness for extended periods of time because the organic screen elements wear out the more you use them.

I wish the 10 5G was being released here , it seems like TCLs best option for folks who do want to use a phone for a longer term and with more screen on time
The Plex doesn’t have a big enough battery by 2020 standards and the L is a bit gutless
