The Xperia X Performance is the fourth Sony smartphone to receive Android 8.0 Oreo

The Xperia XZ Premium was the first Sony smartphone to receive the highly-anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update, whereas a few days ago to other handset got the update – Xperia XZ and XZs. Today, a fourth Sony smartphone joins the club, the Xperia X Performance, just like we reported over the weekend.

The update is pushed OTA (over the air) and weighs in at around 1.25GB, so make sure you have enough free storage before attempting to download it. It's also worth noting that this has the same firmware number as the one targeting the Xperia XZ and XZs: 41.3.A.0.401.

Sony added the November security patch and the same new features and improvements that we talked about in our previous report: Reminders, Xperia Actions, App Shortcuts, Smart text selection, and Autofill.

Since the roll-out has just begun, we believe it will take some time to go live worldwide, so be patient if it doesn't yet show up on your smartphone, this is a staged push out after all.

Sony is the fastest OEM when it comes to updates. Love the clean and fast interface. Sad to see many sites turn a blind eye to this fact

The Z3+(Z4) & the Z5 aren't getting Oreo whereas the S6 is. I'd take the extra year of support over the quicker short term update

Did Samsung confirm this? If yes good for them, the older S phones lagged behind software updates.

Okay , let's get this straight up . I don't want to reply people like you this long like TechieXP and i do like Samsung overall , but judging from your comment , you should take overlook back in 2015 . At that time , when S6 and S6 Edge was launched , Samsung used to wanted to applied the Snapdragon 810 for S6 and S6E's version of North American Market . But after debacle of Snapdragon 810 thermal issues went up by media before S6 was even introduced , including one of the victims was M9 and G Flex 2 , Samsung decided not to use 20nm S810 for their S6 , S6E as well S6E+ and Note5 for their NA market . Instead , they used Exynos 7420 Octa that also installed in International Market . And because Exynos doesn't have much direct connection with Snapdragon , when they stated all S810-powered-phone except Nexus 6P , doesn't get update beyond Nougat (7.x) , Samsung could freely update the S6 and Note5 to Oreo , but my only concerns that both devices could be slowed down by Oreo update due heavy-interface of Samsung Experience 9.0 (despite being much better and optimized than we saw back on TouchWiz era) . Z3+ , Z4T and Z5 family got affected by this rules although i have feeling that hidden files could revealed that Z5 could get Oreo as many speculated the same with Z3 that could get Nougat (7.x) , but apparently stopped at DP4 due Google's Nougat Update Policy changes . And the last 5 Z's series of Xperia will and still get update though by Secuirty Patches (last was September) I hope you understand and just don't pull a gas against Sony (Xperia) fans and Sony post . You just made yourself bad infront of them . Don't be like now-banned Hallyu .

Glad to see Sony taking the mobile sector seriously and trying to be the best in some regard. I just wish they would modernize their aesthetic, and fix the camera software. It's embarrassing that all the major OEMs are using Sony sensors, and implement them better than Sony.

It's not them taking it seriously at all, they are only updating ~10 phones to 8.0

Still , how long Samsung could finished the Nougat update towards their phones that got one ? Until end of 2018 or what.....? That could be the time Sony updated their XZ1 to Android P ...... At least Sony learned and pushed Android update much faster , better and deeper starting Nougat and Oreo than they used to be back in Lollipop and MM .
