Latest Xperia X Concept release introduces Glove mode and LDAC support

by XB on 1st March 2017

in Firmware, Xperia X series


Sony Mobile has released a new firmware update for the Xperia X Concept program in the form of build number 38.3.1.A.0.32C. This new update introduces Glove mode, which you can access via the shortcuts. The other big addition, is better audio functionality with LDAC support.

Other changes include Google security patches update to 5 February 2017, a new version of the camera (with more options in manual mode) and memory performance improvements. Sony has had to temporarily drop VoLTE support due to issues on German networks, but it should be fixed soon. Overall, another worthwhile update from the Sony Xperia Concept team.

Update: Sony has now made its discussions on the Concept firmware available to those outside of the program – you can follow its progress here.

Thanks najodleglejszy!

    glove mode was here in earlier Xperia models i.e. T2 Ultra

  • Muchakis

    The Xperia Sola was the first Sony phone with this feature. But it wasn’t just a simple glove mode it was also used for highlighting links before clicking on them.
    Sony was always ahead of the competition, but they don’t invest in promotion of their products and rely simply on social networks.

    I had one… Just check out the techs that Sony invented and now used vastly around the markets and successfully.
    Hovering Touch– Samsung uses with its S Pen
    Sensor with white pixel.(Never made it to the final product) Used by Huawei.
    Amoled. SAMSUNG
    Stamina Mode… Doze

    Sony has issues with marketing but I think Sony will pickup. There is lot more going on to build up and company has already started making profits.

    This Xperia Concept.

    Still not get it. So first Xperia X will get first updates and test it. Then updates will be released to others devices like XZ/Z5?

  • Moisés

    They just added the quick access now.

  • MrWalker1000

    sony is a real giant when it comes to innovation.

    lets not forget ip68 double glass design that is prevalent in many smartphones. Especially the dustproof/waterproof found in many smartphones.

    STILL WAITING FOR ANDROID N FOR MY Z5 IN SOUTH AFRICA

    Security Patch Level – 5th of Feb. Meanwhile a ‘flagship’ phone with a ‘flagship’ processor and a ‘flagship’ price; remained its Security Patch Level on the 1st Dec 2016 which I’m proud of. Kudos Sony!

    – 2nd Of March 2017!

    Thanks Zingo, good to see comments available to those outside the Concept program. We have added a quick update to our post above.

  • Nimda01

    RGBW sensor does a good job for low-light photography, but still has a room for improvement. It lacks detail compared to traditional RGB. That’s why it was abandoned in P9 and Mate 8.

  • Squirtle 1

    Still waiting for 7.1.1 for xz

  • George Salukvadze

    hmmm, I still have Glove mode on my Z5 Compact even with Nougat

  • isnt LDAC supported from Z2/Z3?

  • This is about Concept OS. It’s a fresh start… Have a look in the forum that Zingo linked to above.

  • This is Concept, not official. It started with pretty much vanilla android.

  • No. That’d be a beta.

    Concept poses the questions “if we rebuilt an Xperia platform today what do users really want included? Is the stock implementation the right one? And is it implemented in the right way?”

  • ShinOrochiX

    I really miss the old monolithic design, imo the old 2012-2013 Xperia’s looked the best, the arc of the Xperia L, bold design of the Xperia S.

    Which phone are you talking about? I have Feb 1st on my Xperia XZ.

  • deekbee

    I’ve never found glove mode to work particularly well; compared to the same feature as implemented on my old Lumia 1020 or 930, its pretty poor – feels clunky.

  • Not necessarily. Concept tests out different solutions, part of that means seeing if they can achieve a similar feature as stock without modifying the system so much.
