For example, Samsung's Galaxy S series is usually the company's top-of-the-line smartphone at the beginning of the year, but then in August it launches its Note series devices, which are also flagship products. Also, TCL calls its 10 Pro smartphone its flagship and Google has its Pixel 5. Flagship phones are usually the best of the best, offering a top-of-the-line premium processor, lots of RAM, and more.

TCL 10 Pro and TCL 10L Review: The TV-makers first smartphones

When people in Canada hear TCL, they think of affordable TVs with high-end specifications. Many are not aware that the China-based smartphone-maker is also responsible for the BlackBerry (in North America) and the Alcatel smartphone brands as well. Now, the company that released the BlackBerry KEYone is launching two smartphones under its own name, the TCL 10 Pro and the 10L. These two mid-range handsets come with an elegant design language, an interesting user interface and an affordable price. The TCL 10 Pro offers better specs than the 10L, but the latter sports a more affordable price tag. TCL’s self-branded smartphones have their own type of charm, however, they’re far from perfect.
