Below the hood, the system will likely be powered by a mid-range Snapdragon 675 chipset. Clearly, TCL is specializing in the mid-range smartphone phase with this system.

Talking of the rear, the handset flaunts a holographic end on the bottom which has considerably boosted the aesthetics of the system.
The handset has a “Good Key” that permits you to set off actions based mostly on a single press, double press, or long-press. And don’t fear, they’re remappable by the consumer.
