TCL, one of the world’s best-selling consumer electronics brands and leading technology companies, today announced the availability of Android 12 Developer Preview Program (Beta version) for its TCL 20 Pro 5G smartphone.
According to Google, the Developer Preview Program is a “way for developers to get early access to the newest version of Android.” Google says that you will get a system image which you can flash using Fastboot.
To participate in the program, you will need to be a registered Android developer with a Google Account. You will also need a device that is on the list of supported devices.
This announcement, in addition to the company’s recent collaboration with Google as part of the Android Enterprise Recommended program, strengthens TCL’s commitment to providing users with fast and easy access to the latest Android software updates and features.
The Developer Preview Program for Android 12, the next version of Android OS, offers a number of tools for developers to improve user experience and provide an early test and development environment to create and optimize within the platform. As this is a beta product, the preview phase is targeted at early adopters and developers and is not intended for the general public.
Since the official launch of the TCL Mobile brand at CES 2020, TCL has continued to make significant growth into the global smartphone market. The TCL 20 Pro 5G, equipped with TCL UI 4.0, has evolved with efforts in the past months in providing more industry-leading and customized software updates in multi-screen collaboration, display enhancement, security and privacy protection, user interface, camera experience and other advanced functions for consumers.
Reviews for the he TCL 20 Pro 5G have been generally very good. Whilst it doesn’t have the best specifications, it makes up for it with fantastic design, and it’s a trade-off that works. While we found its battery life wanting, found its charging speed too slow, and can imagine some people disliking its 60Hz display, in our opinion the good looks of the phone, its display and the smart selfie camera compensate for the shortcomings.
TCL is a fast-growing consumer electronics company and leading player in the global TV industry. Founded in 1981, it now operates in over 160 markets globally. According to Sigmaintell, TCL ranked 2nd in the global TV market in terms of sales volume in 2019.
