After Xperia XZ and XZs, another Sony smartphone is now getting the latest Android 8.0 Oreo update. The Sony Xperia X Performance, the smartphone that was launched last year, is now receiving the latest Android version build.
With this, the Xperia X Performance has become the fourth smartphone from Sony to be updated to the latest Android Oreo operating system. Prior to Xperia XZ and XZs, the company had released Android Oreo for Xperia XZ Premium in October.
The software version build for the Sony Xperia X Performance is 41.3.A.0.401. This is the same build number as the Oreo update for the Xperia XZ and XZs.
The update comes with the latest November Android security patch as well as all of the new Oreo features such as Picture-in-Picture, Smart Text selection, Auto-fill, App shortcuts, Notification dots, and more.
There are several new Xperia features included, such as Xperia Actions, and Reminders. The update is reportedly around 1.2GB in size. So, make sure you are on a stable Wi-Fi connection.
The Sony Xperia X Performance was launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and was updated to the Android 7.1 Nougt operating system in November last year.
The latest Android Oeo update is available over-the-air (OTA) and is being rolled out in phases. So if you have not yet received the update, don’t worry as it should be available to everyone in around one week. Both single SIM and dual SIM variants – with model number F8131 and F8132, respectively – are getting the update.
Sony is one of the very few smartphone manufacturers which is actively rolling out Android updates to their devices. Recently, Nokia rolled out Android Oreo for Nokia 8 and promised to roll out the same for Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 smartphones.
