TCL might be one of several budget-friendly Android smartphone manufacturers to benefit from LG’s predictable yet painful mobile industry retirement both stateside and worldwide, but in order for that to happen, the Chinese company’s promising devices actually need to, well, go on sale.

The same seemingly goes for the TCL 20S and 20Y, although that’s also where the similarities between those two devices end, with the TCL 20Y sporting a humble 1600 x 720 pix res panel with a waterdrop notch and a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset inside, while the 20S will apparently come with a sharper display, trendier hole punch design, and faster Snapdragon 665 SoC on deck.

Last… and most likely least, the TCL 20E will not just feature a modest 1600 x 720 screen and the same Helio P22 processor as the aforementioned 20Y, also downgrading the memory from an already unimpressive 4 to a potentially unusable 3GB.
All in all, there’s nothing remarkable about this army of low-cost Android smartphones at first glance, but that could definitely change when TCL finally brings something new and hopefully irresistibly priced to the US.
