TCL has released a few great smartphones recently including the TCL 10 Pro and TCL 10L. The manufacture might seem like a new player to some. However, TCL is the company behind Blackberry’s Android phones which have been around for a long while. And now, the manufacturer is releasing some excellent value-for-money devices under the TCL brand.
The newest additions are the TCL 10 Pro and TCL 10L which have a lot to offer at a mid-range price. As the naming scheme hints, the TCL 10 Pro is the better spec’d of the duo. However, it also comes in at a higher price of $449 compared to $249 for the TCL 10L. Both smartphones come with Android 10 out of the box. Another good news for TCL 10 Pro and TCL 10L users is that the duo might get the Android 11 update along with 2 years of software support.

It’s highly likely that this information is accurate since most Android OEMs follow a similar trend. Apart from OnePlus and Google who offer at least 3 years of software updates, other Android OEMs choose the 2-year update strategy. Nonetheless, we will have to wait for an official word from TCL regarding the updates for both devices.
The TCL 10 Pro comes with a Snapdragon 675 mid-range SoC and a sizeable 4,500mAh battery. On the camera front, the device packs a quad-camera setup with a 64MP primary sensor. There’s also the addition of an in-screen optical fingerprint scanner. The more affordable TCL 10L has a Snapdragon 655 SoC along with a 4,000mAh battery. It also has a quad-camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor.
One area in which both devices stand out from the crowd is in their design. The TCL 10 Pro has a design that’s similar to smartphones priced at or above $1000. On the other hand, the TCL 10L also comes with a great design for its low price. And with the Android 11 update along with 2 years of software support practically confirmed, the TCL 10 Pro and TCL 10L are easier to recommend.
