Sony's Xperia XZ3 flagship receives its first update, brings timely security changes
Sony has released the first update for its latest flagship - the Xperia XZ3. With a file size of 487MB, the software upgrade should bump the version of the device to 52.0.A.3.27.

The only thing mentioned in the change log of the new patch is the inclusion of the Android Security update for October. While it's regrettable that other features were not noted, it's still possible that something might have been added in secret, so let us know if you spot anything in the comments. In any case, it's good to see Sony continuing the practice of issuing timely updates for its phones - the XZ3 is one of the few models outside of the Pixel/Nexus lineups to receive the latest security firmware.


The update is available OTA, but it might need some time to reach all compatible devices. You can check for it manually by going to Settings > About Device > Software Updates. As always, make sure that your phone is sufficiently charged and connected to a Wi-Fi network before proceeding with the patch.
