Without an official changelog to go with it, the Sony Xperia 1 II has just received a new software update. The 108.6 MB patch is available via OTA and contains the November 2020 Android security patch from Google, most likely combined with a few Sony-exclusive tweaks and fixes.

With a price tag of over US$1,400, the Sony Xperia 1 II is a flagship with a very specific target public, namely professional photographers. Obviously, this handset is no match for professional cameras, but the included professional apps can help achieve excellent results for a smartphone camera. Now, this top-of-the-line handset is receiving a new software update.

As it often happens with Sony's patches, the new firmware does not get an official changelog. However, it is certain that the 108.6 MB OTA update is based on the November 2020 Android security patch from Google. This means that the update will include all the security fixes of Google's security update, which patches no less than 30 security vulnerabilities, as well as some Sony-exclusive fixes, tweaks, and maybe a few new features as well.

The build number of the aforementioned security patch for the Sony Xperia 1 II is 58.0.A.3.224. Sony has also updated last year's budget Xperia L3, but that handset only got the security patch dated October 5 2020 and the build number of its new piece of code is 54.0.A.6.61.

If any Sony Xperia 1 II users are reading this, please go ahead and let us know what you think about the update. Are there any noticeable Sony-exclusive changes?

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
