A new firmware update is currently rolling out to owners of the Sony Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet. The update moves the build number to 17.1.1.A.0.402. We don’t know the exact improvements that have been pushed through so far, if you’ve updated let us know what changes you’ve noticed below.
Initial reports suggest an improvement in touchscreen sensitivity and performance enhancements. Whether the Xperia Z2’s 4K recording performance has been optimised to avoid shutdowns remains to be seen.
For the Xperia Z2, the update is live on both D6502 (HSPA+) and D6503 (LTE) variants. For the Xperia Z2 Tablet, the update is live on both LTE (SGP521) and Wi-Fi variants (SGP511/SGP512). It’s nice to see Wi-Fi owners not being delayed, as is so often the case with the tablet updates.
