Regarding the specs of this phone, it’s still unclear what TCL has planned. Some of the trustworthy Rumors suggest the phone could have a 1080p display, a midrange Snapdragon processor, and a 4000mAh battery, but there’s no guarantee around any of that. The device has made its way through the FCC already, so it’s only a matter of time before we could get some more information about the phone’s release date.
