Flagship smartphones usually pack all the latest and greatest tech, but it also usually comes with a hefty price tag to match. Thankfully as technology advances, some of the flagship features trickle down to lower-end models, so if you’re looking for a new phone that won’t cost you an arm and leg, TCL might have something for you.

The phone will also feature a 6.75-inch Mini-Notch display with a 90Hz refresh rate featuring TCL’s NXTVISION technology, and will boast a 90% screen-to-body ratio. There is also a 5,010mAh battery with support for fast charging.
As for the cameras, the TCL 40 SE will pack a 50MP main shooter with a 1/2.55-inch sensor and an aperture of f/1.8.
