Sony's Xperia L3, XA3, and XA3 Ultra will be released running Android Oreo
It seems new devices from Sony won’t automatically benefit from using the latest operating system from Google after all. Documents unearthed by the Dutch website Mobiel kopen and reported on by LetsGoDigital have given up information about the new Xperia L3, XA3, and XA3 Ultra smartphones. It appears all three will operate on variants of Android Oreo, and they will not come with Android Pie straight out-of-the-box. The XA3 and XA3 Ultra will come with Android 8.0 and the L3 will use Android 8.1.
Some other details apart from the operating system have also been revealed. The budget level L3 device (model numbers I4312 and I4332) will come with a 5.7-inch screen and offer an HD+ (1440x720) resolution. The XA3 (I4113 and I4193) and the XA3 Ultra (I4213 and I4293) will offer Full HD displays (1920x1080) on a 5.9-inch screen and 6.5-inch screen, respectively.
As we already reported, Sony is planning on holding a press conference on January 7, where it is likely these three smartphones will be officially revealed.
