Sony Xperia XZ Premium Android 8.0 Oreo Firmware Upgrade Arrives in the Philippines

One thing I really like about Sony Mobile is how honest the company is when it comes to planned software updates for their handsets.

They tell you if your Xperia is in the timeline for firmware upgrades or if it's not. There's no guessing game.

Earlier this year, they posted in their corporate blog that Sony Xperia XZ Premium, which is one of my current daily handsets, will get the Android 8.0 Oreo treatment. And just the other day, December 6, 2017, my phone finally got it.

Aside from all the new features and key benefits of Android 8.0 Oreo, this fresh upgrade also brings in several cool features to the already incredible Sony Xperia XZ Premium including the following:

1. 3D Creator, which is a software set that allows you to scan your head, face, or any object and turn them into an avatar for sharing online or for printing.

2. Predictive Capture that automatically detects your smile and prompts the camera to snap a shot even before you press the button.

3. Autofocus Burst that's perfect for capturing fast moving subjects as it tracks sequences to give you blur-free images.

4. Qualcomm aptX HD audio enhancement for a more enjoyable music-listening experience anytime, anywhere.

5. Redesigned App Shortcuts that can be accessed simply by long pressing on the icon.

To check if the Android 8.0 Oreo firmware upgrade is already available for your Sony Xperia XZ Premium, simply go to the Settings, scroll down to About Phone, then click Software Update. You will get a notification once it's up for download and installation.

PS: Sony Xperia XZ Premium is now available in a new strikingly gorgeous color here in the Philippines! Aptly called Rosso, this new variant's red hues add a bold and brazen touch to the legendary Japanese tech giant’s flagship phone. Whether from afar or up close, it adds a stunning, stylish, and strong additional reason as to why the Sony Xperia XZ Premium was named the Best New Smartphone in the 2017 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
