Sony Xperia 1 II gets the November 2020 Android security patch
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.
