Sony has finally kicked off the global release of Android 9 Pie on Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ1, and Xperia XZ1 Compact. The original date of the rollout was supposed to be October 26, but the Japanese company was forced to change its programs after identifying a series of bugs that would compromise the proper functioning of the operating system.
The update brings several improvements on the camera app on the three Sony devices, which can now also record 960fps super slow motion video in 1080p, HDR video image enhancement, and updates the security patches in October. It is rolled out in batch-wise in specific regions, and model number, but should have widened release in the coming days. The update brings the model number 47.2.A.0.306.
Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ1, and Xperia XZ1 Compact are going to join the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact that have already been updated by Sony to Android 9 Pie. The owners of Xperia XZ2 Premium should receive the system update in the coming weeks, while it will be necessary to wait until March 2019 for the Android Pie rollout also on Xperia XA2, Xperia XA2 Ultra and Xperia XA2 Plus.
