With a final launch of Android O possibly only a week away, speculation on what devices will be updated to Android 8.0 is starting. The ‘standard’ for Google devices is 2 years ‘desserts’ and 3 years security, and most manufacturers, including Sony have been following this – at least for their higher end phones. So, which phones will get the update?

The list of phones slated to receive the Android O update comes from Japanese site Gazyekichi, so it’s far from official. The list does contain devices which have been released in that 2-year window, so it’s fairly likely that it’s legit. The list includes:

  • Sony Xperia XZ Premium (G 8141, G 8142)
  • Sony Xperia XZS (G 8231, G 8232)
  • Sony Xperia XA 1 (G 3121, G 3123, G 3125, G 3116, G 3123)
  • Sony Xperia L1 (G3311, G3312, G3313)
  • Sony Xperia X Compact
  • Sony Xperia XZ (F 8331, F 8332)
  • Sony Xperia X Performance
  • Sony Xperia X (F 5121, F 5122)
  • Sony Xperia XA 1 Ultra (G 3221, G 3212, G 3223, G 3226)

The Xperia Z series appears to be well and truly falling by the wayside with this update, so take from that what you will. Once Android O officially drops, most manufacturers are fairly quick to announce which devices will get the update so stay tuned for something more official shortly.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
