On sale. TCL 20B - an inexpensive smartphone with a 50 MP camera

In Russia, an inexpensive smartphone appeared on salecalled TCL 20B. A quick investigation showed that something was not visible on the TCL sites of this machine. But, nevertheless, he has also already appeared at least in the markets of Australia and Brazil.

TCL 20B has exact twins, although similar inTCL / Alcatel has enough hardware-looks-smartphones. It's just that all previous models were produced with main cameras of 13 or 48 MP, but here they are generous with a brand new 50 MP sensor.

About the characteristics.

(In different sources I observe smalldiscrepancies. Somewhere three cameras are indicated instead of two, in some places the presence of an NFC module is mentioned, in others it is not, etc. So I can't vouch for one hundred percent accuracy).

The chipset is designated as MediaTek MT6762D, which, according toIdea, it should denote MediaTek Helio P22 born in 2018. In any case, there is no reason to hope for more than a hundred thousand points in AnTuTu. The state employee, what can you take from him. 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage. There is support for memory cards.

NXTVISION proprietary screen, but its characteristics are modest. The diagonal is 6.52 ″, the resolution is 720 × 1600 (269 ppi), there is no increased refresh rate.

The battery is rather small by modern standards, only 4000 mAh. Apparently, there should be a slightly accelerated charging of 18 W, although I do not see any references to this fact in Russian stores.

Cameras. The front camera has a resolution of 8 MP. The rear module is double, 50 + 2 MP (main camera and macro).

The fingerprint scanner is located at the back. The NFC module seems to be there, but this is inaccurate.

TCL 20B has already appeared in the Citylink store, where they want ₽13,990 ($ 190) for it.
For comparison, in Australia the device costs 249dollars (₽12,900, $ 175) (local dollars, of course). I won't even look for Brazilian prices, everything is always expensive there, especially the national taxation.
