Sony Xperia XZ Premium Gets Android 8.0 Oreo

The smartphone was unveiled with then latest Android Nougat 7.

Sony has begun rolling out an Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Xperia XZ Premium. To recall, the app made its debut with the Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact. This complicates the upgrade process, as companies will still need to create a new update for their own user interface using the new Android version before they can send updates to users' phones. However, we had also said that there was a high possibility for the update to reach other markets much earlier than Japan. The feature allows the user to scan their face, food or any object, and offers a 3D avatar of it in less than 60 seconds. The Predictive Capture starts buffering images when the camera detects a smile and offers up to four options to pick from. Finally, XZ Premium users will be getting Qualcomm aptX HD audio support, which promises "high-quality sounds" when using wireless headphones.

The Galaxy Note 8 and S6 edge users can also check for the update manually by heading to Settings About Device System Updates. All Sony Stores at The Curve, KLCC, Plaza Low Yat, Berjaya Times Square, Mid Valley, Sunway Pyramid, IOI Mall Puchong and Sony Online Store will be selling it and the new flagship comes in White Silver, Black, Horizon Blue and Twilight Pink, and will ship with Android 8.0 Oreo.

Sony in a statement promised that Xperia XZ Premium, XZs, XZ1 and XZ1 Compact will get the update.

Lastly, the company has introduced app shortcuts, which allow easy access to actions menus by long pressing the app icon. If you're not seeing the update just yet, just sit tight and wait for that OTA notification, which should be arriving soon. In the meantime, more devices are expected to receive the update, including Xperia XZs and Xperia XA1.
