New TCL smartphone spotted on China Mobile Global Partner Conference Forum. TCL known as the manufacturer behind Alcatel and now the Current license of the Blackberry Brand. But That is not to say it has stopped releasing phones under its own name.
While this is said to be the new smartphone will be TCL A5, the back of the phone has Alcatel’s branding which means this will launch under the brand in some markets. And we already know which Alcatel model this is.
The Alcatel line-up leaked by Evan Blass last month, one of them is the Alcatel 5 and it has the exact design as the TCL A5. Come to think of it the name TCL A5 may actually just be short for TCL Alcatel 5.
The back of the phone is metal with a matte finish. The rear camera is positioned in the middle and below it is a LED flash and a fingerprint scanner. The rest of the specs are unknown but should equally be interesting.
The TCL A5 is its tri-bezel-less design. Rather than have reduced bezels at the top and bottom, TCL has shaved only the lower bezel giving it a look similar to an inverted Xiaomi Mi A1 or a Huawei Honor V10 with its lower bezel missing.
Specification details provided say the TCL A5 has a 5.7” 18:9 display. It is powered by MediaTek’s MT6750T octa-core processor and runs Android 7.0.
The TCL A5 has 16MP dual front facing cameras positioned on the left and a single rear camera of an undisclosed pixel count. It also has Dirac HD sound for Hi-Fi audio.
There have no other specification reveal about this phone yet.
