Sony disclose its schedule for Android 9.0 Pie update and what phones will get it


Taking a ride on the Android 9.0 Pie announcement, Sony came to the public today to reveal its plans for updating its line of smartphones to the latest Android flavor. Since some manufacturers already revealed their own timeline for delivering Pie update, it’s natural to see the Japanese firm adopting the same strategy.

However, don’t hold your breath now, since the first batch of smartphones should receive the update only towards November. So, the first wave of smartphones to be contemplated by Android 9.0 Pie includes:

  • Xperia XZ2
  • Xperia XZ2 Compact
  • Xperia XZ2 Premium
  • Xperia XZ Premium
  • Xperia XZ1
  • Xperia XZ1 Compact

It’s no surprise to see Sony providing Pie to the last year flagships and the recently released Xperia XZ2 family. However, the company also informed us that they’ll bring the update in early 2019 to the following handsets:

  • Xperia XA2
  • Xperia XA2 Ultra
  • Xperia XA2 Plus

Sony also provided an infographic explaining to the users how the process of update happens and why it’ll take so long. Worth noting that the Japanese firm isn’t among the strongest smartphone manufacturers with a large slice of the market, but still shows some commitment to users providing major Android updates since the beta programs.
