Despite there are just around 1 percent of smartphones running Android Oreo OS, but we believe majority of Android smartphone users have been anticipating the arrival of the latest Android update to their devices.
While Sony had released the latest Android update to their flagship models such as the Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ and the Xperia XZs, there are other models like Sony Xperia XZ1 and the Xperia XZ1 Compact also preloaded with Android Oreo out of the box.
For those who are using Sony’s mid-range smartphone series have been longed for the Oreo update can finally be relieved from the wait as Sony has started rolling out the Android Oreo update to these three smartphones: Xperia XA1, Xperia XA1 Ultra, and Xperia XA1 Plus.
The build number for the Xperia XA1, Ultra, and the Plus has been moved up from 48.0.A.1.131 (Android 7.0) to version 48.1.A.0.116 (Android 8.0.0). The update includes the February 5, 2018 security patch. Currently, the changelog isn’t known, but users should expect standard Android Oreo features such as notification channels, picture-in-picture mode, smart text selection, notification dots, the AutoFill framework, faster boot times, and more.
Meanwhile, Sony has also stated previously that the Android Oreo update will remove the Night Light feature for the Xperia XA1 series, so this update might not be a good news to all users.
