TCL jumps on stylus trend with new budget handset

TCL is following in the path of Samsung, Motorola and LG

Samsung, LG, Motorola and now TCL are jumping on the bandwagon with a new handset that features a stylus, the TCL Stylus 5G.

The smartphone features a 6.81-inch FHD display, which is pretty sizeable. The screen also offers a blue light filter and support for the company’s NXTVISION technology, which upscales SDR to HDR content, improving contrast and colour saturation for movies and games.

Additionally, the handset sports a 4,000mAh battery with an octa-core Mediatek Dimsentiy 700 chip, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and offers a microSD card slot for expandable storage, and surprisingly, even a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The phone also features a 50-megapixel primary shooter, 5-megapixel camera with an ultra-wide lens, 2-megapixel depth sensor and a 2-megapixel macro camera. Additionally, on the front, there’s a 13-megapixel selfie shooter.

The stylus, on the other hand, features a built-in storage slot. The handset includes a feature that lets you create notes while the phone is still locked, grab screenshots and create custom GIFs. Also, due to a partnership with MyScript, the Stylus 5G comes with a subscription for the Nebo and MyScript Calculator apps that allow users convert handwritten notes to text.

In the U.S. the handset costs $258 USD (roughly $324 CAD). We’ve reached out to TCL for Canadian availability and pricing.
