in Firmware, Xperia XZ series

Sony Mobile has released the first firmware update for the Xperia XZ Premium, which updates the handset with the latest 1 June 2017 Android security patch. Build number 45.0.A.5.1 has been released a number of regions, but there are also a couple of other firmware versions released concurrently with the same Android security patch.

This includes build number 45.0.A.5.6 for the single SIM Xperia XZ Premium (G8141) released in Korea, and version number 45.0.A.5.8 for the dual SIM version (G8142) in Taiwan. No other big changes are included in the update.

Thanks Dennis, Stanley and Walaspancha!

    “One of the biggest talking points is the insanely good (yet hard-to-master) Super Slow Motion feature, which captures incredible footage at a staggering 960-frames-per-second. However, it’s the XZ Premium’s everyday photography chops that really make it a solid smartphone snapper. You can shoot gorgeous-looking pics in any conditions, including really dark environments, using Sony’s Superior Auto mode.”

    “We expected the Xperia XZ Premium to snap identical 19MP samples with the Xperia XZs, but that was not the case. The Xperia XZ Premium images turned out better than the ones by the XZs. In good light the phone performs great in capturing the finest details – it is a match for the 23MP cameras used before. The processing, including the colors, has not changed much since the Xperia XZ and XZs, but there is a bit more detail and less noise than the aforementioned. The major change, though, comes in the corners – the softness we experienced with so many Xperia smartphones is now gone. The XZ Premium photos have as sharp and detailed corners as their center, and that’s an excellent improvement over the past Xperia phones, XZs included.Sony has worked on improving the Automatic White Balance and the colors are more accurate than their previous snappers. Indeed, the images turned out true to real life with accurate colors, great contrast and wide dynamic range.”

    That looks cool as hell Moisés!

    I found this on youtube..
    And that geordian site has an article with this pic.

    They say new phones will be a bit different, than next year changes get bigger.

    I do not like double cam… It looks like a little monster face.

  • RockStar2005

    Haha yeah it does.

    I would prefer they started making the phones out of FULL metal instead of the combo stuff or metal/glass. XZ Premium I think has plastic sides right? Back is glass/metal I believe but sides are rubber or plastic. Not AS premium as I’d like. lol

    The battery life though per Phone Arena is labeled as “Excellent”, which makes me happy after seeing my former X Performance’s battery life turn out to be abysmal. lol And camera too is great (better than S8??). But they need to upgrade audio, certify VoLTE with T-Mobile (required for T-Mo use) so ppl who buy int’l or US one can use VoLTE, stop being cheap on FS, and keep releasing ON TIME not late like X Perf was. I went back to HTC (10) again and love it cuz they did all that and then some. If Sony did that I’d STRONGLY consider going back. It just depends. I would also prefer they went 18:9 like Samsung and LG did. More screen, less body ftw.

    I hope not. Those silly edge displays are a gimmick. Let’s hope Sony is smarter than that.

    Top and bottom are metal.
    Frames are nylon.

  • RockStar2005

    Ok. I might’ve known that, but still, the frames are NOT metal.

    Premium that shiht up Sony!!! lol

  • Moisés

    I like the design of X Perf.
    Graphite black and lime gold look great.
    We did not have ut officially here.
    Only X , X dual, XA, XAu, E5 and XZ 32gb.

    This year XA1 and L1 are available already. XZs is not coming .

    Battery of my Z4 is better on nougat. I use the strongest stamina mode, it slows down phone a bit.

    Couple weeks ago, it was cold here… 20C, so I could shoot 38 min 4K.
    Battery got low and memory full, it was going to resist more than 50 min easily.

  • Moisés

    Reviewers say it is tough and great grip.
    My phone is 14 months, metal frames started to look ugly. Black spots.
    Plastic can last longer.

  • RockStar2005

    Oh I did too………….prob even more than the XZ. The XZ Premium is pretty sick too.

    Yeah I had Graphite Black.

    I’m in the U.S. (you?). I got the int’l version so I had the working fs as well.

    That’s cool about Z4 battery. Z4? Oh the tablet! Cool. lol

    Yeah Stamina Mode is cool. It was buggy on my Z3 so it caused me A LOT of misery and hassle, until I got wise and downloaded 360 Hibernation Master. It was like SM but BETTER. But it doesn’t appear to work on the X series. Sux!!

    Oh wow on 38 min of 4K! LOL Crazy.

    Wow Z4 sounds pretty cool. I’m not a tablet guy though. I don’t even like phablets. lol

  • RockStar2005

    I dunno. lol I’m ok with rubber corners but not the entire side.

    I just bought a sleeve bag for my HTC 10 off Amazon. It will come in very soon. Kind of a nice compromise between having and not having a case. lol

    I would prob recommend finding one for you too. At least if they go metal with frames again.

  • Moisés


    Instead of writing Z3+ , I end up typing z4.
    I wish I had Z4 Tablet. Z2 was the last here.

    I have a LG G Pad 10″. Qualcomm 400, HD screen 16gb, 1gb ram. 8000mAh.
    You can play about 7 hours of Real Racing 3 before it runs out of power.

  • RockStar2005

    Ahh that’s right. I recall speaking to you before.

    Oh ok. LOL

    That’s awesome! Yeah tablets are great for games. I’m not a big gamer, at least not since I was a teen. lol

    Does this update add “Double Tap to Wake Up” feature ?

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    Got a XZP Luminous Chrome yesterday, and this update came today as a nice surprise! Can’t find a changelog yet, though. By the way, It’s a fantastic gadget to look at, hold & use. I miss the double tap to wake, double tap to sleep and screen recording features. I hope they’d come back soon.
