Sony Xperia XZ Premium gets Android 8.0 Oreo and 3D designer


Sony began distributing the firmware for the flagship Xperia XZ Premium, built on Android 8.0 Oreo (contrary to previous rumors about plans for December ). The Android Oreo update brings the Xperia XZ Premium closer to the more recently launched Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact, with a feature called 3D Creator. The company has said that the software rollouts are a phased process and thus timing and availability will vary by the market where some operator/market exceptions will likely be applicable. This means the Japanese customers of the Xperia XZ Premium Rosso will get the Nougat version, followed by the Oreo update.

Along with the new version of the “robot”, the first 4K smartphone with HDR received a number of features previously available only on the new Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact, including 3D model constructor (demo see our preview of new products IFA 2017), predictive shooting with smile recognition, tracking autofocus for continuous shooting and improved stereo sound quality. Also on the Xperia XZ Premium there were shortcuts (context menu with long clicking on the application shortcut). The size of the update was 1290.2 MB. You can update by “air” through the smartphone menu. Update and share with us your impressions of the new Sony software. Details on the update of other Xperia devices we will report separately.
