TCL PLEX smartphone with advanced display and camera now available in Australia
The TCL PLEX, the smartphone that incorporates advanced display technology and a cutting-edge camera system is now available to purchase for Australian customers through JB Hi-Fi.
It is the first TCL-branded mobile device to be released in Australia and is priced at $499.
“The TCL PLEX offers Aussie consumers excellence in display technology, camera and design, and it is pleasing to be launching such a well-specified phone into Australia so close to its initial unveiling at IFA this year,” said Sam Skontos, VP & Regional Managing Director South East Asia & Pacific, TCL Communication.
“With Australians consuming more video content than ever before, the TCL PLEX will be the cinema in their pocket that they can rely on, thanks to TCL’s legacy in display technology.”
The TCL PLEX has a slick design with a dual-sided glass body and a 3D holographic finish.
The 6.53-inch FHD+ TCL Dotch display offers a 90 per cent screen to body ratio with a discreet front facing camera peeking through a hole punch in the top left corner.
The screen incorporates TCL’s proprietary NXTVISION technology which includes a dedicated display engine and advanced processor to offer a six-axis colour enhancement and provide vivid TV-like quality in the palm of your hand.
Users will enjoy sharper images thanks to the 2D edge enhancement and even better contrast and enhanced colours thanks to SDR to HDR real-time conversion.
And to avoid eye strain for the huge amount of time we spend in our phones, the TCL Plex offers Adaptive Tone, Reading Mode and Eye Comfort Mode.
Adaptive Tone adapts the screen brightness and even adjusts the colour temperature for an optimized experience.
Reading Mode can create a paper-like experience for frequently-used apps that the user specifies.
And Eye Comfort Mode removes 66 per cent of harmful blue light from the screen.
On the camera side, the TCL PLEX has a triple camera system made up of a 48-megapixel Sony sensor, a 16-megapixel 123-degree super wide angle camera and a 2-megapixel low light sensor.
Photographers will be able to pour light into the darkest scenes in Super Night Mode.
The TCL PLEX camera uses AI to determine the best shooting modes on the conditions in front of you.
On the front is a 24-megapixel selfie camera with a higher resolution possible through the 4-in-1 big pixel technology that combines four pixels into one when the image is captured.
On the left edge of the TCL PLEX is a dedicated Smart Key that can be programmed in three ways – either open certain apps or execute a command – with a single, double and triple press.
And when it comes to the battery, the TCL PLEX delivers fast charging that will get users to 50 per cent charge after just 32 minutes.
Customers will receive regular software updates and is in track to receive the latest Android 10 operating system upgrade in January 2020.
The TCL PLEX is available in two colours – Obsidian Black and Opal White – and is priced at $499 from JB Hi-Fi.
