The TCL 10 Pro and TCL 10L were launched in early April after being announced at CES 2020. These devices make up one of TCL’s most interesting series’ in a while. There was some confusion at first about how many updates these phones would be getting, but TCL later clarified that they’d at least get Android 11 and 2 years of security updates. This week, the phones are getting their first updates and some discounts.
