TCL launched the 10 5G, 10 Pro, and 10L smartphones in the US in April this year. Up until now, the company only sold these devices in the unlocked variant. Soon, T-Mobile might start selling these newly launched TCL smartphones under the REVVL branding.
The company introduced the REVVL as a white-label smartphone brand in 2017. T-Mobile may sell the TCL 10 5G and TCL 10L as REVVL 5G and REVVL 4+ respectively. Even the first two generations of the REVVL smartphones are also manufactured by TCL.
T-Mobile to sell TCL 10 5G and TCL 10L as REVVL 5G and REVVL 4+
However, there is still no official confirmation from T-Mobile about these two upcoming smartphones. The product name on the TCL 10L listing on the Bluetooth SIG website was recently updated to REVVL 4+. Both the TCL 10L and REVVL 4+ come with model number 5062Z/5062W.
On the other hand, the T-Mobile REVVL 5G with the code-name “seattle_5G” can be found on the list of Google Play certified smartphones. Interestingly, the Bluetooth SIG website listing for the TCL 10 5G comes with the design name as “Seattle GL.”
TCL 10 5G is yet to go on sale in the US
While the TCL 10L is already available in the US, the company is yet to bring the TCL 10 5G to the market.
Speaking of hardware, both the TCL 10L and 10 5G offer a higher price-to-performance ratio. On the front, the devices sport a 6.53-inch punch-hole display with Full HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) resolution.
The devices can also offer real-time SDR to HDR conversion. Even the 16MP selfie camera on the front remains the same on both devices. The TCL 10L is powered by the Snapdragon 665 SoC, whereas the 10 5G packs the Snapdragon 765 SoC.
Even with the same screen size, the TCL 105G packs a slightly bigger 4,500mAh battery. The TCL 10L only comes with a 4,000mAh battery.
Regarding the camera, the TCL 10L sports a 48MP quad-camera setup including an 8MP ultra-wide, a 2MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensors.
Coming to the TCL 10 5G, the primary and macro cameras are upgraded to 64MP and 5MP sensors. TCL 10 smartphones will be running on Android 10 out of the box. Unlike the unlocked variant, the UI on the T-Mobile REVVL smartphones will be slightly different.
On top of the extra apps and features from TCL, T-Mobile will also bring its own suite of apps.
As of now, there is no word from the company about the launch of these new REVVL smartphones. However, the Google Play certification indicates the launch is not that far away.
