TCL 2022 phone, tablet, and Wi-Fi range (MCW 2022)
MWC 2022 saw the launch of the new TCL 2022 phone, tablet and Wi-Fi range. It comprises the TCL 30-series smartphones, NXTPAPER MAX 10 e-ink tablet, TAB 10 (4/5G), and various 4/5G Wi-Fi modem/routers.
Note that final models, prices and availability in Australia are unknown.
What is TCL Mobile?
Although it has the same Chinese parent company, TCL Mobile (website and not confused with its TV and home appliances division) handles smartphones, tablets, and AR glasses. TCL also licences the Alcatel brand, although the former seems to have all but disappeared from Australia. In terms of market share, it has only been selling TCL branded phones here for the last three years. It is a challenger brand.
Readers ask, are their phones any good? Well, its 2021 20-series were pretty good for the price reflecting its third-gen. It has a 24-months ACL warranty.
It is yet to rate on the Australian market share scale. The main thing holding it back is the lack of established retailer/telco distribution, with Harvey Norman as the only one selling most of the range.
