TCL Delivers Powerful And Affordable New Flagship TCL 20 Pro 5G With Bonus Smart TV At Launch
TCL, one of the world’s best-selling consumer electronics brands and leading technology companies, has today unveiled its powerful and affordable new flagship TCL 20 Pro 5G. Powered by proprietary NXTVISION 2.0 technology, the TCL 20 Pro 5G reinforces TCL’s commitment to deliver leadership in display innovation, advanced features and superb performance at an affordable price. In addition to 5G connectivity, it offers several display and camera upgrades designed to take the user experience to new heights.
Available from tomorrow for $799, the TCL 20 Pro 5G joins three other smartphones recently launched in Australia – the TCL 20 5G, TCL 20L+ and TCL 20 SE.
In a further boon, Australian consumers who purchase the TCL 20 Pro 5G between July 15 and 29 from Vodafone and Mobileciti will also receive a bonus TCL 43-inch Full HD LED Android Smart TV (TCL S625) as a gift with purchase by redemption, with an RRP of $599. Adding a bonus TCL TV into a bundle featuring TCL’s latest flagship smartphone provides an incredible bundle deal for Australian consumers, and showcases the leadership in display innovation that runs across both TCL’s televisions and smartphones.
“TCL is a well-known and trusted household name in many parts of the world and has been in Australia for a long time. Today’s launch of the 20 Pro 5G is yet another example of what we are able to deliver to Australian consumers who want the very latest features in a beautiful but affordable smartphone,” said Joseph Corrente, Channel Manager for TCL Communication Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands.
“Our innovation and heritage in display technology and owning our own manufacturing throughout means that we can deliver a high-performance smartphone with industry-leading display and a range of new innovations, all for under $800.”
Featuring a curved 6.67-inch AMOLED display, the TCL 20 Pro 5G offers a truly immersive viewing experience thanks to TCL’s all-new NXTVISION 2.0 Intelligent Display technology powered by Pixelworks. This proprietary advanced display optimisation technology provides industry-leading colour accuracy, and the improved AI visual enhancement recognises on-screen content and scenes and automatically adjusts the colour, contrast and sharpness for more accurate and adaptive calibration.
NXTVISION also offers elevated levels of eye protection to reduce eye strain and blue light, while the TCL 20 Pro 5G also supports HDR10 playback for streaming TV series, documentaries and films on Netflix.
Along with the optimised display technology and a bump-free design, the TCL 20 Pro 5G boasts a quad rear camera array including a 48 MP primary module complete with Sony IMX main sensor, as well as lenses for ultra-wide, macro and depth sensors and an HDR-enabled 32MP front camera. Shooting professional-looking photos of family and friends is a snap with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), ensuring smooth, crisp images in high resolution detail. Additionally, the Backlight Selfie eliminates washed-out photos when the sun is behind you or you’re in the shade, so you can present yourself and your friends in the very best light possible.
The TCL 20 Pro 5G provides well over a full day of power, has wireless charging capability, and fast charging technology makes it easy to quickly top up if you’re starting to get low. There’s also 256GB internal storage and micro SD capacity of up to 1TB, more than enough to store plenty of images and high-resolution videos without the need to constantly delete content.
The TCL 20 Pro 5G´s Super Bluetooth feature pushes the limits of audio-streaming by connecting up to four Bluetooth devices so that you can share music with friends at the same time anywhere you like.
The TCL 20 Pro 5G will be the first TCL device to enable Multi-Screen Collaboration, a new innovation recently announced at Mobile World Congress 2021. Multi-Screen Collaboration will enable a more interactive, multi-screen experience, moving more smoothly across smartphone to TV, tablet and PC to access content, services and data. It will be enabled via an over-the-air software update to be announced shortly.
TCL’s entire 20 Series lineup has been verified by Google™ as Android Enterprise Recommended devices. TCL joins a select group of notable companies with devices recommended by Google for business use. Android Enterprise Recommended establishes best practices and common requirements, backed by a rigorous testing process, conducted by Google. Every Android Enterprise Recommended device is verified against enterprise grade requirements for performance, consistency and security updates.

The TCL 20 Pro 5G was also recently reviewed by DXOMARK for its display and camera performance. Its independent benchmarking positioned the TCL 20 Pro 5G’s display as a “New Color Leader”, even when compared to significantly more expensive handsets, while also naming the quality of the TCL 20 Pro 5G’s camera as one of the best options in the high-end segment.
