Sony has released its update roadmap for Android Pie. The company is set to continue its tradition of being one of the first OEMs to send out major updates to its devices.

Since the release of Pie a while ago, we’ve had a few OEMs send out updates—or publicly announce their plans for the rollout—of the current version of Android. Motorola unveiled its update schedule for Android Pie, and Sony has now followed suit.

According to the announcement on Sony’s mobile division's blogs, the company will send out updates to the Xperia XZ2, XZ2 Compact, XZ2 Premium, XZ Premium, XZ1, and XZ1 Compact. All of these devices are flagships—current-gen or last-gen, as the case may be, with the oldest being the XZ Premium that was released in February 2017. These devices will receive their Oreo updates in November, which is about par for Sony OS updates over the past few generations.

On a similar note, the XA2, XA2 Ultra, and XA2 Plus are confirmed to receive their first slices of the Pie by early January. That declaration is made even more impressive by the fact that Samsung has similarly positioned devices set to receive their Oreo updates around the same period.
