Recently we have seen Sony rolling out its Android 9.0 Pie to Xperia XZ2 line of smartphones and also promised to push the update to its XZ1, XZ1 Compact, and XZ Premium by 26th October which couldn’t happen. But now the company has started rolling the update after almost 2 weeks from the announced date while the update is rolled out via OTA with a built number 47.2.A.0.306 which will be bringing many changelogs along with it.
With this new update, the Android Pie’s navigation gesture will not be available on the device which will make many of you sad. Along with the latest Android built, you will also get improvements in the camera department which includes 1080p super slow-motion video captures and also the usual security patch for the month of October. The update will be region wise so it might take some time for it to reach your device.
You can always check for the update manually in case if you have not received it and can’t wait. Just go to the settings of the device and check for the system updates from the about phone section. If there is an update available download it and install it. Make sure the battery on the device is at least 60 percent and make sure all the date on the smartphone has been backed up just to be on the safe side. It is suggested to download the update via Wi-Fi only as data charges might be applicable.
The Sony Xperia XZ1 was released last year in the month of September with 5.2-inch IPS LCD display. As most of the devices from the company, the handset was also IP68 rated for dust and waterproofing and was powered with a Snapdragon 835 SoC from Qualcomm with eight cores and 4 GB of RAM. The onboard storage is 64GB, extendable via microSD card and has a 19MP main camera sensor on the rear along with 13MP selfie camera.
The device came with a side mounted fingerprint sensor and had a 2700mAh fast charging battery with the support of Quick Charge 3.0.
