Android Oreo is now rolling out to Sony Xperia X Performance

A month after delivering the latest experience on the Xperia XZ Premium, Sony has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo update for its Xperia XZ and Xperia XZs. The update will be rolled out over-the-air (OTA) and should eventually reach all devices.

According to the company, the update will only be available for the unlocked variant of the smartphone instead of the carrier-locked smartphones in the United States. The smartphone was launched running Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. These features include Smart text selection, Auto-fill, Picture-in-Picture mode, new Quick settings design and more. LG announced previously that the LG V30 will get the Android Oreo update in South Korea in December. Android Oreo has other features like including Background limits, installation of apps via APK, over 60 new emojis, notification dots, Wide-gamut colour for apps, Snoozing individual notification, Adaptive icons, Keyboard navigation, WebView enhancements and much more.

As it was expected from them, HTC has started offering the Android Oreo OS for its U11 smartphone. It will come to the unlocked version of last year's flagship HTC 10, too.

The announcement comes via HTC's Mo Versi, VP, Product Management, on his Twitter account. The smartphone was shipped with Android 7.1 in the United States market, which left users anticipating the update for Android 8.0 Oreo.

What about Android 8.0 update for other HTC smartphones? The U11 runs a almost stock version of Android 7.1.1 and has some pretty powerful internals (such as the Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB RAM and 12MP rear camera) along with some useful gimmicky features (such as the "squeezable" Edge Sense and multiple AI-based assistants). Called Xperia Actions, this patented feature of Sony has the ability to determine the best set of device settings for improving the performance and battery life of the smartphone.
