Sony starts rolling out Android Oreo for Xperia XZ Premium

Sony has announced that it has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo for the Xperia XZ Premium, beating others, to become the first OEM to push Android's latest iteration.

Android Oreo brings a lot of new features and improvements such as Picture in Picture (PIP) mode, adaptive icon, notification channels, background limits and more. Sony has also made some customization to the software by adding some its own features like 3D Creators, which was first introduced in Xperia Z1/Z1 Compact, Predictive Capture, Auto-focus burst and more.

Here's the list of features Android Oreo brings for Xperia XZ Premium
3D Creator – Our acclaimed 3D scanning feature first introduced with Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact. It lets you scan your face, head, food or any object, rendering it as a 3D avatar or free-form image in less than 60 seconds, and makes it easy to share on social media with friends or 3D print

Predictive Capture (smile) – Never miss an unexpected again, as Predictive Capture automatically starts buffering images when it detects a smile (even before you press the shutter button), allowing you to pick the best from a selection of up to four shots

Auto-focus burst – Recognizes, tracks and captures sequences of moving objects in sharp focus for blur-free action shots

Improved sound quality – Tuning improvements to the front-facing stereo speakers, and Qualcomm aptX HD audio support for high-quality sounds when using wireless headphones

App Shortcuts – Re-imagined app shortcuts, which allow easy access to actions menus by long pressing the app icon.

The Android Oreo for Xperia XZ Premium will be rolled out in phases, so it will take time for the update to roll out globally, and cover all devices.

Apart from Xperia XZ Premium, Sony has promised Oreo treat for Xperia X, Xperia X Performance, Xperia XZ, Xperia X Compact, Xperia XZs, Xperia XA1, Xperia XA1 Ultra, Xperia XA1 Plus, and Xperia Touch projector.
