Sony Xperia XZ Premium Android 8.0 Oreo update
Owners of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium can count on an Android 8.0 update for their smartphone today, so let the company know. The update is gradually rolled out worldwide, making it possible for several days to take weeks for everyone to turn. You will receive a notification automatically after the software is ready for your XZ Premium. By searching for “Software Update” in the settings, manually check for availability.
The update is a few hundred MB’s. It is therefore recommended that you download them only via a Wi-Fi connection unless you have a large database. Sony is, after Google itself, the first major manufacturer to roll out Android Oreo for its smartphones. When other recent Sony devices like the Xperia XZ and Xperia XA1 follow is still unknown.
3D Creator, Predictive Capture, and other improvements
After installation, you have the 3D Creator, an app that lets you scan your heads and objects with your smartphone. Then you can use that scan as an avatar and share it on social media, or print with a 3D printer.
The ‘Predictive Capture’ option in the camera app, which makes multiple photos when motion is detected, now also has smile support. When someone laughs you will not get one, but four photos, including some of you, just pressed the camera button. Finally, with the autofocus burst option, you can quickly take 100 sharp pics.
these features are already featured on the Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact, which have recently been sold in the Netherlands. Sony also introduces some features that are part of Android Oreo, such as a picture-in-picture mode for watching the video. Also, battery power has been reduced to standby with the new Android background limits. Finally, the sound quality has improved, both for the dual speakers front and via cordless headphones.
