Xperia X Concept update intros new SONY Audio Effects engine (38.3.1.A.0.91)

by XB on 31st March 2017

in Firmware, Xperia X series


Sony Mobile’s Concept team has released a new firmware update (38.3.1.A.0.91) for the Xperia X experimental track. The highlight feature of this latest update is a new audio engine, which combines SONY Audio Effects Engine and Google’s integrated MusicFX audio functions. This means that that MusicFX will now use Sony’s audio engine, rather than the proprietary Android audio effects.

A helpful change in this latest update is that the battery percentage indicator in the status bar has now been moved outside of the icon, this means it is much easier to tell how much battery life you have left. Other additions include VoLTE in Telenor Norway, Hutch (3) Danmark/Sweden, as well as VoWifi support in Germany (Vodafone, O2 and Telekom).

A few bugs have been fixed including the Bluetooth restart problem, along with a graphical bug for camera app shortcuts. If you want to try the Xperia X Concept then head over to this link.

    CORRECTION:This means that the MusicFX will now use Sony’s proprietary audio engine, rather than the generic Android audio effects.

    Seems to make more sense this way.

  • Yes, but it is the engine that is updated… not the UI. It is much improved from the stock android one.

    Did you read the article?

    That means Sony is giving away its all exclusive proprietary to the core Android. It’s a tricky game of US based companies. Sony is becoming ordinary in every section making their exclusivity open source. And others are getting better without paying Sony or working hard on these sections. Actually Google is doing these to make its Pixel phones better, without sharing profit with Sony. Sony is giving almost everything they have, while Google never asked Sony to make a Nexus device.
    Sony is looser not only in marketing strategy, but also in exclusivity of business strategy. How fool Sony is these days!!!

    No … Battey % inside icon is much better.. Bring back landscape mode icon .. Like android 5.
    Also stamina as a + not as separated icon. It is ugly.

  • dragonsneeze

    They are not sharing their audio engine, it just replaces stock android’s on concept sw. It’s not added to AOSP

  • “Actually Google is doing these to make its Pixel phones better, without sharing profit with Sony”

    Thats not true:

    “LDAC is already built into Sony’s expensive Walkman players, its high-end wireless headphones (like the excellent noise-cancelling MDR-1000x), Sony-branded wireless speakers, and Xperia smartphones. But now other Android phone makers will be able to wirelessly transit higher quality audio using LDAC to speakers and headphones that have the technology included. This stands to mostly benefit Sony’s own products right now, since no one else is using LDAC and would likely have to pay a licensing fee to put it in a speaker or wireless headphones. It’s free to integrate into mobile devices, as Google confirmed LDAC is now part of the Android AOSP base code. ”

    And Sony received from camera sensors used in other companies and now will receive from the batteries, used in S8.

    okay this is fucking bullshit.

    yeah sony just give all of your exclusivity to other brands and screw yourself over. Its not like you’re struggling with sales or anything like that.

  • theskig

    That battery icon takes twice the space, I hate that. Just keep the choice instead of spoiling the UI at every update.

  • Ahmed Fakher

    I see, any idea when the 7.1 is gonna be availabe for the XZ ??

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I prefer having the battery percentage beside the battery icon instead of having it inside the icon itself actually :p sure it might take up some more space in the statusbar but still looks better IMO
