You’re probably used to seeing the name TCL branded across its economical TVs, but what you presumably didn’t know is that the company has sprouted a new branch and decided to launch into the smartphone market with an upper mid-range smartphone that, much like their TV’s, suits the budget conscious.

While we haven’t had the chance to get our hands on this phone to try for ourselves, a glance at the specs and features of the TLC Plex has piqued our interest – packed with a reputable 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card, the internals are pretty decent.

Where the TCL Plex promises to shine is with its three-lens rear camera, boasting 48MP, 16MP and 2MP sensors for crisp and clear images. TLC has gone a touch further and added a camera app that splits the screen into three parts – each feeding from a different lens. This feature enables you to easily compare which lens to use. 

Taking a look inside, you’ll find a Snapdragon 675 processor – definitely not the best processor around town but it will confidently handle daily tasks without any issues.

The TLC Plex (in Opal White) is currently priced at AU$249 through JB Hi-Fi – that’s a massive discount of 50%, saving you AU$250. It's half price and you won't find anything else on the market at this low price!

TLC’s recently released Plex-branded smartphone has been dramatically discounted making it even more affordable than it already was. Along with a Snapdragon 675 processor, the TCL Plex packs 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 256GB via microSD card. It also sports an impressive three-lens rear camera with 48MP, 16MP and 2MP sensors, so you won’t have to compromise on picture quality for price. The TLC Plex is currently available in Opal White through JB Hi-Fi at just half price – that’s a huge saving of AU$250.
