You8217;re looking at the TCL 10 Pro, one of three phones 8211; there8217;s the 10L, 10 Pro and 10 5G 8211; that8217;s set to launch in Europe, bringing curved screen delights at a not-so-high price point.
We had previously seen these devices at CES 2020, but following the cancellation of Mobile World Congress 2020, TCL chose to delay its official unveiling, as the company attempts to make a name for itself in the smartphone world.
We say 8216;make a name for itself8217; because while the company has been manufacturing phones for a while now, it only started selling devices with its own brand name in western markets in 2019. Before that, it made phones with other companies; like BlackBerry, Alcatel and Palm.
The TCL Plex was the maker8217;s very first TCL-stamped mobile device, and the 10 series continues on from where that promising device left off.
All three TCL 10 devices share similarities, such as the multiple cameras being lined up horizontally across the back. All also feature a curved glass AMOLED display 8211; which is made by the company itself (not an Samsung import as is typical).

- TCL 10 Pro spec overview:
The phones all use displays made by TCL itself, with the 10 Pro sporting the manufacturer8217;s 8216;Edge AMOLED display8217;, which curves towards the edges, creating an edge-to-edge look. The only thing encroaching on its space is a tiny dewdrop notch at the top.
The big take-away for the TCL 10 series is price: the 10L is just €249/£199; the 10 Pro is €449/£399; the 10 5G €399/£399. That8217;s affordable whichever way you look at it 8211; especially the 5G handset.
