HMD Global chief Juho Sarvikas recently announced that the company is already testing Android 8.0 Oreo for Nokia 8 with select users. The update is rolling out to users as an OTA update and should be substantial download.
As per the official change-log, the Xperia XZ and XZs will be receiving several new features and improvements as a part of the new software update.
The new firmware update file weighs 1,518.1 MB and comes with security patches for the month of November. It includes new Reminders for unfinished tasks, including draft emails and messages as well as smart text selection, which suggests actions based on the selected text.
According to the source, Xperia X Performance could be the next in line-up to get the taste of Oreo.
The development team at Sony has ensured that Google is not the only company providing so much benefits to their users because they have incorporated some of their own features such as the Xperia Actions and Reminders which will add more value to those who opted for the Sony phone as they are company specific features. Company long ago confirmed that all Nokia smartphones launched by HMD Global will be updated not only to Android Oreo but also to upcoming Android P version.
On the other hand, Sony Xperia XZs was introduced in the Mobile World Congress earlier this year with Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
To remind you, Sony Xperia XZ was unveiled back in September previous year with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor paired with stock Android Nougat operating system (OS).
