Sony Xperia XZ Premium starts receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update

Sony has just announced it has kicked off the roll-out of Android 8.0 Oreo and the first smartphone to receive the update is the Xperia XZ Premium. Last week, the company confirmed the Oreo will be pushed to the Xperia XZ Premium starting December, but it looks like that timeframe was only available for Japan.

So, even though the roll-out of Android Oreo for Xperia XZ Premium begins today, this is a phased process, which means timing and availability will vary by market and/or carrier.

It's also worth mentioning that the Xperia XZ Premium Rosso, which was unveiled last week, will make its debut in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Middle East & Africa with Android 8.0 Oreo on board.

The Android Oreo announcement contains some details about the changes Sony plans to include in the update, such as 3D Creator, predictive capture, autofocus burst, improved sound quality and app shortcuts.

These improvements will be implemented in addition to all those that Google packed in Android 8.0 Oreo and that you can read about in our full review of the OS.
