Sony Xperia XZ Premium is getting Android 8.0 Oreo starting today

Owners of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium can look forward to start receiving Android Oreo, after the company announced that the new update will roll out to these devices from today. It enables smartphone manufacturers to update their devices to the latest version of Android easily without customizing their custom UI like TouchWiz and MIUI. Using the Motion Eye camera technology, users can use the XZ1 Compact to scan faces, head, food and objects (free form scan). You can even 3D print your created image if you have the hardware to do so.

Well, now that Sony has started rolling out the Oreo update for Xperia XZ Premium, we expect the company to roll out the Oreo update for Xperia X, Xperia X Performance, Xperia XZ, Xperia X Compact, Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZs, Xperia XA1, Xperia XA1 Ultra, Xperia Touch and Xperia XA1 Plus soon. Furthermore, you can pick the best shots from a collection of up to four. Autofocus burst is another big feature which captures the burst photos of moving objects with fast autofocus for blur-free photos.

In any case, Sony Xperia XZ Premium (review) users in the above-mentioned regions will be able to experience Oreo and its features hands on.

Rounding out the feature updates is improved sound quality thanks to "tuning improvements" to the front-facing speakers, and aptX HD audio support, as well as Oreo's new app shortcuts. Besides, the update has re-imagined app shortcuts that work with a long-pressing gesture on the app icons.

The reason behind this quick update might be the Google's project Treble.

Speaking of the Oreo update for XZ Premium, it's being rolled out in a phased manner, hence, it will take at least a week or so for the update to reach all the units.

Not all XZ Premium devices will get the update at the same time, as it has to go through the mobile operators before being pushed to devices. You can also check for the update manually if you don't get an update notification.
