Back in late April, Sony released a software update for the Xperia XZ and Xperia X Performance based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The build number of that update was 41.2.A.2.199, and now the time has finally arrived for the first Android 8.0 Oreo-based firmware to reach the Xperia X Performance. Carrying the build number 41.3.A.0.401, this new update has begun its rollout last week, when it became available for the Xperia XZ and Xperia XZs.

According to XPERIA Blog, this new software update for the Xperia X Performance is live for both the single SIM (F8131) and dual-SIM (F8132) models of this flagship. The official changelog reveals that the 1,254.7 MB update includes the following highlights:

  • reminders for unfinished tasks such as draft emails and messages
  • Xperia Actions - user profiles based on usage, including gaming and commuting
  • smart text selection - "contextually recognizes and suggests useful options based on selected text"
  • autofill - easy to store and then to fill in personal information when needed

The Android security patch level of the update says "November 1, 2017" and, in addition to the above, some users might also enjoy the overhauled shortcuts, now accessible via a long-press for direct access to some actions. As usual, the update rolls out in stages, so if you own one of these beautiful (and quite expensive) flagships, you should know that it might take a while for the Android Oreo update to reach your handset.

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.
