T-Mobile’s most affordable 5G smartphone will go on sale Friday (also in Metro)

The day the bargain hunters have been waiting for Since early January it is finally over here Right around the corner, with T-Mobile’s ultra-affordable TCL 30 XE 5G officially set to make its commercial debut on Friday, February 25th, in both the “Un-carrier” itself and its Metro by T-Mobile prepaid sub.

Interestingly, Magenta will charge slightly less than its daughter company, at $198 compared to $199.99, allowing the new 6.5-inch mid-ranger to undercut the 6.8-inch T-Mobile REVVL V+ 5G (for the same two amounts). buggers) and technically claim the title of the cheapest 5G phone available at the country’s second-largest wireless service provider.

On the bright side of things, the TCL 30 XE 5G packs a massive 4,500mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging, and the MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor doesn’t feel like a snap either, powering very expensive devices from various brands. other outside the United States.

Unfortunately for TCL, most of its direct competitors in the sub-$300 price bracket have cameras that sound much better than a triple rear-facing arrangement of 13, 2, and 2MP sensors and a single 8MP selfie camera. something tells us T-Mobile and especially Metro will be looking to drop the $200 price even further before long with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage as well, so it might be wise not to get your order on February 25th.
