TCL has unexpectedly launched a brand new budget-friendly smartphone for Verizon customers dubbed the TCL SIGNA.
The 5.5-inch TCL SIGNA isn’t going to be the largest or most powerful phone on the block. Tucked behind the HD+, 18:9 ratio Dragontrail glass panel, the company packed a quad-core Snapdragon 429 SoC. That’s clocked at 1.9 GHz but only backed by 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage — up to 8.5GB end-user accessible.
Storage can be expanded though, via microSD up to 256GB. And the hardware should enable a longer-than-usual life out of the 3,000mAh capacity battery driving all of that hardware. In fact, TCL says that while the phone takes around 2.2-hours to charge, it’ll last up to 29-hours with mixed-use.
For cameras, TCL built its SIGNA around an 8-megapixel standard sensor on the back with an LED flash. Autofocus and EIS are built right in, and video capture is possible
