TCL Stylus 5G is official with an integrated pen and cheap price

TCL has formalized Stylus 5G, a product that becomes part of the niche of Android smartphones with integrated stylus. If the very modest price announced in the USA is included in the evaluations, then the competition for Stylus 5G almost completely disappears. There’s the Motorola Moto G Stylus 5G 2022 recently announced just overseas, but it costs $ 200 more, practically double.

In short, the new TCL product, price in hand, is an interesting product due to its unique feature, namely that of the stylus integrated into the body in the Galaxy S22 Ultra style. Then looking at the technical data sheet it is clear that to achieve a similar result TCL had to compromise on the technical characteristics. So, two are mainly striking: the RAM, limited to just 4 GB, and the battery, from 4,000 mAh with fast charging at 18 watts.

Even the chip chosen, MediaTek’s Dimensity 700, is not a reference in terms of power but on paper, it gives less to think about than RAM and battery. However, the 6.81-inch display is interesting, which inevitably “weighs” on the size of the device and on the scale but is a plus when you decide to use the stylus. For which TCL has thought of a series of functions that could enhance it :

  • with Nebo for TCL handwritten notes can be converted into documents thanks to handwriting recognition
  • nib extraction menu that offers quick access to specific functions, such as creating an electronic signature or writing on images
  • creation of GIFs from hand drawings
  • fast writing with the screen off
  • custom size cutouts and screenshots

Also, in the USA TCL Stylus 5G is sold by the operator T-Mobile for $ 269.99. Still no information on the possible marketing outside the United States.
