Wondering whether your Sony device will get the latest Android Oreo update? We have compiled a list of SONY devices expected to get the most recent taste of the Android OS.

Android Oreo 8.0 is now the most recent version of Android; the firmware is currently live for Pixel and Nexus devices.

Now, whenever a major Android release occurs the most common question surrounding the update is whether my Android smartphone will get the update or not and to solve this confusion we have compiled the list of Sony devices which are most likely to get the Oreo upgrade. Then the devices which may or may not get the update and then the ones which will not get the update.

Sony has done an excellent Job when it comes to software updates, the Nougat update took just three months to arrive on some of their flagships, and the Android Oreo will likely follow the same schedule. The Sony XZ Premium and XZs will most probably be the first Sony devices to receive Android Oreo unless and until we see a new Sony Flagship in the coming six months.

Before we move on the devices, here are some of the highlights of the Android Oreo.

  • Project Treble ( Faster and less battery hungry)
  • New and improved emoji
  • Picture-in-Picture mode
  • Doze Mode
  • Improved quick settings
  • Improved notifications
  • Several new under the hood changes

Now coming to the Android Oreo update for Sony Xperia devices, we will first mention the devices which will be eligible for update according to their series, and they will be collectively referred to in the form of a list.
