Thunderbird FF1 is the new mobile phone from FALCON, TCL’s subsidiary brand for the development of intelligent equipment, including mobile phones. This brand configures a style similar to that which happens with other Chinese brands that present themselves as references in a higher segment, not leaving aside the lower segments — as happens with Honor and Pocophone, which are brands of Huawei (era) and of Xiaomi, respectively.

A large part of TCL’s reputation comes from its experience in the development of air conditioner, refrigerators, washing machine, but above all, in the experience with televisions — even selling together with IKEA — and, more recently, in the smartphone business with the launch, in 2019, of the TCL Plex (the first of the brand), but becoming popular with the 10 line: TCL 10 Pro, 10 Plus, 10L and 10 SE.

This FF1 has the particularity of having been co-developed with Huawei — which has vast experience in the development of mobile phones — whose market share has been affected following the commercial restrictions imposed by the US executive, during the mandate of Donald Trump. Although under pressure, the knowledge acquired by the Chinese was extensive and used now for the development of TCL’s next mobile phone, under the name FFALCON.

This one Thunderbird FF1 brings midrange specs and 5G connectivity. A 6.67-inch 120Hz screen with punch-hole notch for the 16MP selfie camera is included. At the rear, there’s a 64MP main camera alongside an 8MP ultrawide sensor and a 2MP depth-sensor — which improves the quality of portrait shots.

The cell phone counts the processor Dimension 900 gives MediaTek conjugated with 8 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB internal storage. THE drums in 4,300 mAh comes with 66W fast charging that takes 40 minutes for a full charge cycle. These details are quite interesting for a mid-range mobile phone even more so for a mobile phone like this.

The Thunderbird FF1 will be available in black and green. The 8/128GB basic version costs $385 (about €325), while the 8/256GB version costs $432 (about €365). Pre-booking starts on September 6th, while official sales are expected to start on September 10th. It is not yet known whether the mobile phone will be available globally.
