Sony confirms early Android 9 Pie updates for some Xperia models

We speculated that Sony Mobile could be releasing Android 9 Pie earlier for some models, when it unexpectedly began to roll the replace to the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact final week, forward of schedule. Well it seems that that is certainly the case.

Sony Mobile has confirmed that the Xperia XZ Premium, XZ1 and XZ1 Compact will get the replace from 26 October 2018. Owners of the Xperia XZ2 Premium will see the replace from 7 November. These models had been all unique anticipated to obtain Android Pie from November 2018, so it’s good to see a barely earlier launch.

For the mid-rangers, together with the Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra and XA2 Plus, Sony plans to replace these from 4 March 2019. It’s good to see Sony put some particular dates on its rollout, rising the transparency on its software program plans.

Thanks Diogo and Lazaros!
