In a recent development, TCL has now started rolling out the stable Android 11 update for the TCL 10L. Notably, TCL 10L is a mid-range device from the company, and as promised, the device is getting its first OS update.
TCL during the launch of TCL 10L made it clear that the device will pick up regular security as well as firmware updates. While there are other OEMs that also make such claims, they failed to deliver in reality.
However, it is a good sign that TCL has kept what it promised to deliver. The TCL 10L Android 11 update was first spotted by the Italian blog, HDBlog. Apparently, it started rolling out last Friday.
For the unaware, the TCL 10L came with Android 10 out of the box. So, this is the first Android firmware update for the TCL 10L. This is impressive because there are several expensive devices from different OEMs still waiting to get updated with Android 11.
Talking about the features of the update, it brings all the latest Android 11 goodies for the device. Notably, it adds features like native screen recording, chat bubbles, Flight Mode with Bluetooth, quick access to smart devices, one time permissions, etc.
