Sony Mobile has begun the Android 9 Pie rollout for the Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact at this time. As of writing, the replace has solely seen a restricted launch when it comes to areas and mannequin variants, however it would widen within the coming days.
The replace strikes the construct quantity to 47.2.A.0.306, and arrives with the 1 October 2018 Android safety patch. Android Pie was due to be released in late October, so it’s a bit late as a consequence of bug quashing. This is why we suspect Sony didn’t push the replace with the most recent November safety patches.
The new replace is anticipated to convey Sony’s new digicam interface, Full HD 960fps slow-motion video assist and HDR video picture enhancement (X-Reality with HDR converter). Selfie digicam show flash was additionally rumoured to be supported, however we’ll want to attend to obtain the replace ourselves to seek out out. Also, simply in case you’re looking for it, Sony has not adopted Android Pie gesture navigation sadly. Hopefully, this may are available a later launch.

Thanks Lazaros, Mrninko and Sevdar!
