This is TCL 30 Z, a basic 4G mobile phone for the US market, available on Cricket network. It looks like a downgraded version of the TCL 30 LE that is sold via Verizon. It come in a 6.1-inches screen with 720 x 1560 pixels resolutions. The screen has a dewdrop notch on the head housing the selfie camera.

As for the internal specs, the TCL 30 Z is powered by the Helio A22 SoC from MediaTek. The Chipset has 4-core CPUs clocked at 2.0GHz, along with PowerVR GE8320 GPU, 3GB RAM and a single 32-Gigs of built-in storage.

On the camera wing, you are getting a single 8-megapixel main lens on the rear, along with an LED flash, while a 5-megapixel selfie sensor is used on the front.

The phone is powered by the same 3000mAh battery, but the charger is now 5W, and the interface is micro-USB, not Type-C. No fingerprint scanner is available on here as well, but thankfully, Google Android 12 OS is preloaded out of the box. The full specs of TCL 30 Z smartphone is contained in the table below.
