More well-known for their TVs rather than their mobile division, TCL is aggressively entering the mid-range smartphone market with the TCL PLEX. Packing a 6.53-inch 2340 x 1080 display and a 48MP main shooter, it’s serious in making TCL brand name in smartphones.

A Screen like their TVs

TCL has its roots in displays so it’s safe to say that they have focused on making the TCL PLEX’s display of top-notch quality. It comes with a 6.53-inch LCD Dotch screen, which is their fancy way of saying that the smartphone comes with a punch-hole for its 24MP f/2.0 front-facing lens.

Thanks to a dedicated display engine, the TCL PLEX can boast better color accuracy that mirrors the performance of their TVs. In addition, a 6-axis color enhancement has been applied to get more radiant images from the display.

The TCL PLEX will also sport a dedicated display engine and real-time SDR to HDR video enhancement that can help you while viewing videos on the smartphone. Long standard options such Adaptive Tone and Eye Comfort Mode are thrown in for good measure.

Triple rear cameras with a 48MP main shooter

At the rear is a triple camera setup composed of a 48MP f/1.8 main lens, a 16MP f/2.4 ultrawide shooter, and a 2MP f/1.8 portrait camera. Its main camera is powered by a Sony IMX582 sensor that allows it to take high resolution photos, Super Night Mode Photos, 4K30fps, and 720p960fps videos.

On-par internals

Inside its chassis is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chip with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. Those who need more storage can expand its internal storage via its MicroSD slot up to 256GB.

The smartphone is powered by a 3,820mAh non-removable battery. It will be charged via a USB Type-C port at the bottom that’s also compatible with Qualcomm QuickCharge 3.0 to alleviate the wait.

TCL is promising an Android 10 update

The smartphone will ship with Android 9.0 Pie with TCL UI. TCL’s OS will feature relatively standard features such as a Smart Key, smooth folder browsing, automatic app organization, and a bit of customization. TCL has also promised that an Android 10 update will be coming via FOTA.

TCL PLEX
Chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 675
Screen 6.53 LCD Dotch, 19.5:9, 90% Screen-to-Body ratio, 2340 x 1080
RAM 6GB
OS Android 9.0 Pie with TCL UI, Expected Android 10 update via FOTA
Rear Camera 48MP f/1.8 6P, 16MP f/2.4 5P, 2MP f/1.8 5P, IMX582, S5K3P0, OV02K Image Sensors
Front Camera 24MP f/2.0 5P Lens, Beautification
Video 4K30fps, 1080p120fps, 720p240fps, 720p960fps
Storage 128GB UFS 2.1 expandable up to 256GB via MicroSD Slot
Network Dual Nano-SIM, 4G LTE
Connectivity Dual-Band Wifi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5mm Audio Jack, USB Type-C
Battery 3,820mAh, QuickCharge 3.0
Others Rear-mounted Fingerprint Sensor, 4 Bluetooth Devices Simultaneously
Colors Obsidian Black, Opal White

The TCL PLEX will be available in stores starting November 15, 2019 for PhP 15,990. Those who are interested can choose from two colors: Obsidian Black and Opal White.

Select stores will also be offering a free TCL 24.0-inch TV worth PhP 7,999 with every purchase of a TCL PLEX. This offer will run until December 1, 2019.

Ghost Games™, a studio of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) have announced Need for Speed™ Heat is available worldwide on the PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Origin™ for PC. Need for Speed Heat sends players to Palm City, a brand-new open world where street racers choose their way to play; earn Bank in sanctioned events by day, or risk it all to build Rep in underground races by night. Big risks could mean big rewards, it’s up to the player to make the call.

“At its core Need for Speed is about custom rides, adrenaline-filled races with cops and without them and showcasing the latest in car customisation. With Need for Speed Heat we’ve dialed those core tenants up and dropped them into a vibrant new world,” said Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games. “Heat offers two firsts for the series including a unique day and night cycle that offers players two ways to play, and customisable avatars so they can express themselves beyond just their wheels.”

In Need for Speed Heat, players can drive the hybrid-electric performance, Polestar 1, for the first time ever, as well as some of the most iconic car brands in the world, see the full list here. The game also offers the deepest customisation the series has ever seen, including a range of options for both performance and style, which gives players the tools they need to create their perfect high-octane, anything-goes, dream car. Additionally, as another first for the franchise, Need for Speed Heat features character customisation, giving players 12 preset avatars to choose from to further adapt their own style. Clothing and accessories from PUMA, Life’s a Beach, End Clothing and other well-known brands, ensure that players will be going full throttle with the latest fashion when they hit the streets of Palm City.

Need for Speed Heat also introduces players to a bright, new urban environment that becomes a dangerous neon playground once the sun sets. Taking inspiration from Miami – a vibrant city with a multicultural blend of music, cool street art and stunning night lights – Palm City is a street-racer’s paradise. Day and night are at the core of progression in Need for Speed Heat. During the day, players race in a series of sanctioned events to build Bank. At night, they must engage in illicit racing to establish themselves and reap extra Rep. When the sun goes down things heat up, but the rewards are there for the fearless.

EA Access* and Origin Access* Basic subscribers can enjoy up to 10 hours of play time, along with 10% off the purchase of the full game. Origin Access Premier subscribers get all the benefits of Basic on top of full access to the game on PC for as long as they are subscribed.

Need for Speed Heat is rated T for Teen and is available worldwide for the PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and PC for $59.99 USD.
