Sony rolls out Android 7.1.1 for the $1700 Xperia Touch Projector

Sony's $1700 Xperia Touch projector was launched running Android Nougat, and is confirmed to get Oreo. But before that is to happen, Sony has rolled out Android 7.1.1 Nougat for the the projector, which brings a handful of new features. 

The new update brings gestures controls, keystone settings, portrait mode, support for ALAC file format & CleraAudio+ and addition of table mode to presence function.
  • Gesture control – When projecting Xperia Touch onto a vertical wall (while watching Netflix for example), you’ll now be able to control the interface using physical gestures, so you don’t need to stand up and touch to select something. Just raise your hand and Xperia Touch will understand you’re about to use Gesture control. From there you can manipulate the interface; navigate menus, control video or music – all via simple swipes and finger “clicks”. You can even toggle mute on / off by holding your finger to your lips (shhhh…).
  • Projection settings – The new Keystone setting can help deal with any potential distortion. In addition to the auto-focus, Sony has added a new manual Focus setting to keep your projections sharp and clear.
  • Presence sensor – Used to work in wall mode, now works in table mode as well. Xperia Touch will wake automatically when you approach, without having to push the power button.
  • Audio – Xperia Touch now supports the ALAC file format (in addition to FLAC), and Sony's ClearAudio+ feature for auto-optimisation of sound settings.
  • Portrait mode – You’ll now have the ability to choose left or right orientation for Android apps that display in portrait mode.
The Sony Xperia Touch will receive Android 7.1.1 update firmware over-the-air. Sony notes that "software rollouts are a phased process – timing and availability will vary by market and/or operator."

For those unaware, Sony's Xperia Touch is an Android Projector with multi-touch support and can turn any flat surface into a 23-inch HD touch screen. It is capable of beaming images vertically and horizontally. The home screen is designed to work in dark conditions, and provides real-time weather information, a memo board for doodles or video notes, calendar access and Skype video chat.
