Google officially rolled out the Android 13 upgrade to eligible Pixel phones earlier this month. And now it’s time for other smartphone OEMs to step things up and provide new software updates to supported devices. Some OEMs shared a detailed roadmap, and some confirmed the list of phones that will receive the new update.
Last year, TCL was one of the select cell phone manufacturers to release a developer preview of the new Android update. But the company has not confirmed anything like that with the Android 13 upgrade.
So, if you own a TCL phone and want to know whether your phone will get the Android 13 upgrade or not, we have compiled a complete list of TCL phones that are eligible for the Android 13 update.
Every Android upgrade is a huge software upgrade for Android phones, and Android 13 is no different. As we got a big change last year with Android 12, it won’t bring big visual changes. However, it’s still a feature-rich upgrade that includes an expanded Material U color scheme, a new music player, per-app language, photo privacy, a new clipboard, notification permissions for apps, and more. . There is something there
Now talking about the availability, the upgrade is already in a rolling phase for Pixel phones. And Google confirmed in its official blog post that Android 13 “will be available on your favorite devices like Samsung Galaxy, Asus, HMD (Nokia phones), iQOO, Motorola, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, Sharp, Sony, Tecno, Vivo, Xiaomi. will be available from , and more” will be released later this year. And the same can be said for TCL phones.
Upgrade availability time depends on the company’s rollout schedule. And as usual TCL didn’t share any rollout plans for Android 13. But TCL officially confirmed the new software plan for its phones.
Last year, after launching the TCL 20-series, the company officially confirmed that the 20-series phones will receive security updates as well as at least two major software updates. No such guarantee has been given yet for the TCL 30-series and TCL Stylus 5G phones, but, both the 30-series and Stylus 5G should get the Android 13 update. Now let’s move on to the list of TCL phones that will receive the Android 12 update.

- TCL 30 V 5G
- TCL 30+
- TCL 30 5G
