TCL 40 Series

At MWC 2023 in Barcelona, ​​TCL showed the new smartphones of the 40 Series, in particular the TCL 40 R 5G, TCL 40SE, TCL 408, TCL 406, TCL 405 and TCL 403. All these products have one feature in common: they are cheap but do not give up on premium features, such as 5G in the case of the TCL 40 R 5G or Android 13 as in the case of the TCL 406.

Together with the 40 series, the new TWS TCL MOVEAUDIO Neo earphones were also presented, also cheap but at the same time quite satisfactory. We must not forget the two new tablets TCL NXTPAPER and TCL TAB 11, but we talk about these in the following article:

Starting to talk about the 40 series , the first product that immediately catches the eye is the TCL 40 R 5G , an affordable smartphone that makes 5G accessible to more and more users. Another noteworthy one is the TCL 406 which comes with Android 13 and 4G connectivity complete with a powerful 5,000mAh battery.

Going forward in the products announced by TCL, we find the TCL 405 and TCL 403 , these are two affordable 4G smartphones with Android 12 Go Edition on board. TCL 405 boasts of a good 6.6″ display and dual speakers, while TCL 403 has all the essentials at a very competitive price.

That's not all, as, as anticipated at the beginning, TCL has also announced the TCL 40SE, featuring TCL's new NXTURBO, a software that optimizes GPU performance by 30% and reduces consumption energy up to 17%. Finally, we find the TCL 408 , another affordable 4G smartphone that offers everything an unpretentious user needs.

Between one smartphone and another, then, TCL also pulled the new TWS TCL MOVEAUDIO Neo earphones out of the cylinder. These earphones have 25dB boosted sound for bass and four modes of sound equalization. In addition, dual microphone call noise cancellation (ENC) and active noise cancellation (ANC) eliminate ambient sounds, helping users stay focused even in noisy places.
