Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ1, Xperia XZ1 Compact Reportedly Receiving Android 9.0 Pie

Sony is not adopting the new gesture navigation on Android Pie, however it might arrive later

Highlights
  • It comes with build number 47.2.A.0.306
  • The update has the older October 2018 security patch
  • An update was promised last month

Sony has reportedly pushed the latest Android 9.0 Pie software update for three more smartphones in its current lineup - the Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ1, and the Xperia XZ1 Compact. This update brings the latest build number 47.2.A.0.306 on all of these smartphones, and also refreshes the Android security patch to October 2018. The Android Pie update is expected to introduce features such as a redesigned camera app interface, full-HD slow motion video recording at 960fps, and HDR enhancements. Sony is reportedly not adopting the new gesture navigation on Android Pie, however it might arrive in a future update.

To recall, Sony had confirmed last month that the Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ1, and Xperia XZ1 Compact would receive the Android Pie update by October 26. However, the Japanese phone maker has failed to live up to its promises due to delayed bug squashing, reports Xperia Blog. This could be the reason why the update comes with the October security patch, and not the latest November 2018 version.

The report also speculates that selfie camera display flash might be a part of this update. The update has seen a limited rollout in regions and models, but is expected to be made available more widely in the coming days. The Xperia XZ2 Premium appears next in line for Android Pie treatment.

Last month, the Sony Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact reportedly started receiving the Android 9.0 update, along with the same October security patch. Sony has also confirmed that the Xperia XA2, Xperia XA2 Ultra, and Xperia XA2 Plus will receive the update early next year.
