Xperia X Concept update (38.3.A.0.94) adds ambient display option – wake display when receive notifications

by XB on 3rd February 2017

in Firmware, Xperia X series


Sony Mobile’s latest update (38.3.A.0.94) to the Xperia X Concept includes a new feature called “ambient display”, which will wake the screen when you receive a notification (similar to the iPhone). The feature can be turned on and off in the display settings.

The camera viewfinder has also been updated to include a fixed level of brightness that is independent of your current screen brightness. The idea behind this is that it should better match the actual photo taken.

There are also a number of bug fixes including Bluetooth audio loss due to OK Google, a fix for tinted display colours even if Night Light was not activated, and a fix for the notification LED not lighting on a missed call. The update is now rolling to all those on the Experimental track.

Thanks Josef and najodleglejszy!

    These are the features that should have been added long back in Xperia. But lets hope they do good with OLED displays.

    “Bluetooth audio loss due to OK Google”
    Maybe there’s hope for Huawei Watch users?
    Anybody can test it? (I have a Z5p with this bug and I’m intrested if they can fix it on recent updates and in case which phone I have to buy if I change mine)

    What about xperia z5 >.<

  • Moisés

    I am glad it can be turned off.
    Do not want this on my z4.

  • Khush

    I like the ambient display feature. hopefully the Z5 receives this, the vibration feature on the last 2 xperias I’ve had are poor compared to what I’ve seen on rival manufacturers, so this should help!

  • MHDN57

    It’s time to leave Sony for what He made to Z5 and because I am hating other android brands, stupid apple IOS is an only solution.

  • Dilipkumar

    Oly X series getting special features frequently.
    But Z5 users disappointed that Sony not minding the old flagship.

    Concept is a different software than t
    Stock Sony software on your device.

    Vibration on both my Xperia z and Xperia x Performance are awesome imo. Sometimes it vibrates way to much xD

  • Snapchat already have the power to wake up my Z5 scenn

  • jokamutta

    Release Android Nuogat for Z5 series already :((

  • Musharab

    Only 4 cores working(A53) remaining 4 Cores (Cortex A57) Always stoped and still Baterry Dains like hell. Sony has really dumped this Z Series Champ “XPERIA Z5”. Phone Idle eating 25% always. Has tried fresh installations and No third party apps installed. Nougat for Z5 from Sony is too much carelessly baked. Hate Lost trust in Sony Mobile division for giving such bad software and also for acting so insensitive towards Z series flagships.

    “ambient display”, which will wake the screen when you receive a notification (similar to the iPhone).

    Umm, that’s not ambient display. Ambient display keeps the screen on 24/7. This feature is just turning the screen on when notifications are received. How is this a new feature?! Every android device I’ve owned since 2009 has done this, including my current Z3 Compact. Does Nougat not turn on the screen for some reason when notifications are received?

    Hahahahaha that’s real funny

    I didnt notice any bugs in nougat update for Z5 Premium. Its great!
