TCL went to CES 2023 and announced a bunch of new products, which include a couple of budget smartphones: the TCL 40 SE, 403, and 408.

The TCL 40 SE is the most interesting of the three as it comes with a large 6.75-inch IPS screen, 90Hz refresh rate, and stereo speakers. It’s followed by the TCL 408 with a smaller 6.6-inch screen at 60Hz, but still has a 50-megapixel main camera like the former.

Lastly, there’s the TCL 403, which only has a 6-inch display with a 960 x 480 pixel resolution and runs on Android 12 Go Edition. The rest of their features are listed below.

The TCL 40 SE will be initially available in Europe for USD169 (~Php9,400), the TCL 408 will come in both Europe and Asia for USD129 (~Php7,200), while the pricing and availability for the TCL 403 are yet to be known.
