TCL 20L: large battery, stereo speakers and IPS-screen
Together with the flagship TCL 20 Pro, the more affordable TCL 20L was also presented. In many ways, the devices are similar, and in some respects, the younger model is even more interesting than the older one. For example, it has a larger battery capacity.
Like the "Pro" version, the TCL 20L received a 6.67-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution, but it is made using IPS technology and does not have curved edges. The smartphone is built on the basis of an eight-core Snapdragon 662 processor, depending on the region, the gadget provides 4 or 6 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of expandable data storage is allocated.
The battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh with support for fast 18-watt charging is responsible for the autonomy. Wireless charging is not provided. But the TCL 20L has stereo speakers, which is not available in the more expensive TCL 20 Pro. There is also a proprietary Super Bluetooth function with the ability to simultaneously connect up to four pairs of headphones or other wireless devices.
The main camera, as in the TCL 20 Pro, has a resolution of 48 megapixel, but lacks optical image stabilization. Additionally, the smartphone has an 8-megapixel ultra-wide with a 118-degree viewing angle and two 2-megapixel modules for portrait and macro photos. Video recording is supported at a maximum resolution of 1080p at 60 frames per second.
The TCL 20L+ was also introduced. It differs from the base model by 6 GB of RAM in all versions, a drive with 256 GB storage, and the main camera with a resolution of 64 megapixel. In all other respects, the smartphones are identical. Both are running Android 11 and are guaranteed to get at least one operating system update.
