Android updates are a treacherous business. They arrive on different handsets at wildly different times, with users frequently left waiting months to get the latest version. But here’s some good news for Sony fans: the newest update is landing early.
Owners of the XZ2 and XZ2 Compact should have the update to Android 9 Pie already. It wasn’t supposed to land until November, but actually started arriving as early as 12th October.
Sony revealed this in a blog post.
The update will come to the XZ Premium, XZ1 and XZ1 Compact from Friday, while it’ll hit the XZ2 Premium from 7th November.
The more wallet-friendly range will get a slice of Android Pie next year. Owners of the XA2, XA2 Ultra and XA2 Plus can look forward to the update from 4th March.
Sony’s latest phone, the XZ3, ships with Android Pie pre-installed.
To check if the update is available for you phone, head to the settings menu of your phone and hit software update.
