Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact Android 9.0 (Pie) update rolling out [Update: Now with November security patch]

Update – November 16: Sony has rolled out new Android Pie update with build number 52.0.A.3.84 that includes November security patch for the Xperia XZ2 Premium, Xperia XZ3, Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact.

Earlier: Sony has started rolling out the Android 9.0 Pie update to the Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia XZ1, and Xperia XZ1 Compact as it had promised. At the moment, the update 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.

It also brings October 2018 Android security patch. Since the update was due in October but got delayed due to last minutes bugs and this is why we suspect Sony didn’t push the update with the latest November security patches.

The new update brings Sony’s new camera interface, Full HD 960fps slow-motion video support and HDR video image enhancement (X-Reality with HDR converter). Selfie camera display flash is also included. However, Sony hasn’t updated the interface with gestures and you will have to rely on navigation buttons. Other inclusions in Pie include Adaptive Battery power prioritization for users’ most commonly used apps/services, Adaptive and optimized brightness levels, Predictive Application Actions and more.

Since the update just started rolling out, it might take a few days to a couple of weeks time to complete the rollout.
