Android 7.1.2 released for Xperia X Concept users (38.4.A.0.27)

by XB on 18th April 2017

in Android, Firmware, Xperia X series


Sony Mobile has released Android 7.1.2 for the Xperia X Concept for Android programme as promised. The update includes Bluetooth connectivity improvements and battery usage alerts. Sony has also improved faster camera start-up times in this update.

As part of the process to get Android 7.1.2 to Xperia X Concept users this early, some compromises had to be made, and one of these is that the Setup Wizard only supports Wi-Fi right now (this will hopefully be fixed in a future update).

The update is live right now on the Experimental track of the Xperia X Concept software. If you own an Xperia X device and want to get involved, then head over here.

Thanks geen and najodleglejszy!

    When update for xperia xz?

  • Nav

    Sony has a very strange consumer service policy!! Ignoring other smartphones wont take them anywhere in my opinion.

  • Since the Concept team is different from the team who developed the “commercial software”, probably only after the XA line get´s android 7

  • The Concept team is different from the team who developed the “commercial software” :/

  • Nav

    But all come under sonys xperia umbrella!! Why are they at loose?

  • Because Xperia Concept is based on pure Android, with very few elements from the Xperia UI…

    EDIT:

    “What is Sony’s Concept for Android™?
    Sony’s Concept for Android is an initiative running separate from the official Xperia™ software. The initiative results in an alternative Xperia software that you can download today on your Xperia X (F5121) phone. 
     
    The Concept allows us, a dedicated team of Sony developers, to pioneer a new take on how to develop Xperia software. Our core principles is to have a fast turnaround time for updates to the Android software, specifically when it comes to new Cookies and security updates.

    This is a new journey for us and to be able to really make a difference we decided to start over from scratch a while back. This means that not all official Xperia features are part of the Concept software. We have not “removed” anything, rather it’s a clean slate where we revisit and check which features are really crucial to you, and when we decide to add stuff in, we seeks to find new and better ways of doing so.”

    What i meant was why sonys commercial software production house isnt releasing any update? To me boyh concept and mainstream producers are kind of same!

  • Abhijeet Abhimanyu

    When xa ultra dual going to get nougat

  • In my beleive, they were trying to fix the problems with Z5/Z4/Z3+ family, and then moving on with upgrading XA line.
    And we can´t ignore that they are realasing the new XA line very soon, so they are probably fixing small bugs to the newest devices.

    See the new info i add in the previous coment. It can help to understand.

  • In every post about an update regarding the Xperia Concept, it´is clearly that people don´t understand what Concept is. Please:

    Maybe they are doing good at that, maybe all mentioned above are now running 7.0 and bugfree android! Good but have you or they forgotten numerous other devices naming mid range like m5 m4 c5 c4. For record m4 is still on buggy android and july 2016 security patch!!

  • That´s why i never recomend mid-range devices from Sony. The support is really terrible. But i´m anxious to see what they are going to do with the new X line. We just have to wait… But i really understand what you´re saying.

  • Nav

    I think you do. Point is that at a price of mid range of sony one can get a flagship or even decent spec phone of any other company having good lifecycle according to price. And sony really need to shift its attention to that amidst its flagship wars with other giants!!

  • Yes! But i just remind me of one thing that could be very importante: the MediaTek processors. I don´t know much about processors, but of what i read here in the blog, MediaTek is bad when we talk about updated drivers so the phone can be updgraded by the manufacters.

  • Nav

    That could be reason for m5, c4 but for m4 it is snapdragon!!

  • That was probably Sony fault!, since GS8 will receive Android N (but no schedule is available).Samsung is having problems with N as well.
    I have to admit that i know the device form the promotional vídeos :/

  • Nav

    GS8!?

  • Sorry, GA8 – Galaxy A8

  • Nav

    Why to mention GS8? was that relevant

  • Nav

    Yes and it is scheduled for May, nex month!

  • Yes, but the update for the Galaxy S6 was delayed a lot. So let’s wait and see.

  • Nirmal Kapopara

    When I got update in z3+????? In india

  • Josef Zvolánek
  • Ahsan Shahriar

  • PRATHAMESH GOVEKAR

    Forget about M4/M5 now, those ain’t getting any more updates, moved to Xperia X now which is having pretty decent upgrade schedule

  • Pragnesh Thakkar

    Managing director of Google!, is explaining to users to start off “Work at home” method, that People have been doing for about one year now. These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

    The XA is low-end; if it gets nougat it won’t be one of Sony’s priorities.
