Android Pie updates are coming for three more Sony phones this month, XZ2 Premium in November
But surprise, surprise, the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact moved up to OS version 9.0 even earlier than that, not to mention the (overpriced) Xperia XZ3 saw daylight with a juicy slice of Pie pre-loaded.
Curiously enough, the impressive Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium is slated to follow the suit of its humbler cousins and forerunners on the Android Pie bandwagon rather than getting the ball rolling itself.
But we can’t really complain of a scheduled November 7 9.0 release date when Samsung’s latest flagships are barely expected to leave Oreo behind next year.
Lastly, the mid-range Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, and XA2 Plus are still “bang on schedule”, looking at a March 4 Android Pie update start. That’s pretty specific for something expected to happen almost five months down the line, although so far, very few bugs have caused delays and serious issues for device manufacturers eager to embrace Google’s newest platform version.
