TCL unveiled the Stylus 5G budget phone with a touch pen
The official departure of LG from the mobile industry was bad news for those interested in budget phones equipped with a touch pen, because the company stopped the production and supply of Stylo series phones. Just when we thought Motorola was going to fill LG’s place in the market with the Moto G Stylus series devices, TCL has entered the fray.
According to what The Verge writes, TCL’s new budget phone, called TCL Stylus 5G, uses a touch pen. TCL’s new 5G phone is available now for $258.
The Stylus 5G phone is equipped with a 6.81-inch 1080p LCD screen, a MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G chip, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and uses a 4,000mAh battery. Motorola Moto G Stylus series phones have a 5,000 mAh battery.
Owners of the new TCL phone can upgrade the storage memory via micro SD card. This phone is also equipped with a headphone jack.
The new TCL phone has a series of touch pen features such as converting handwriting to text through artificial intelligence. This phone is equipped with MyScript Calculator 2 application. This calculator can solve equations and save the results for later use.
The TCL Stylus 5G phone has a 50 megapixel main camera on the back panel along with a 5 megapixel ultra-wide camera and two 2 megapixel cameras, one of which has a macro lens and the other is used for depth measurement of scenes. On the front panel of the device, we see the use of a 13-megapixel selfie camera.
The mentioned phone will be launched with Android 12. TCL says it will release one OS update and two years of security updates for the phone.
