    Maybe I should change my dual sim G8142 model to the single SIM firmware it still doesn’t have the July lol

  • andyy

    I got it, but don’t want to update just yet. Anybody got review?

  • Battal

    Got it today for my XZ, nothing changed .

  • kurakuradisco

    confirm for XP update in Indonesia, but X haven’t received notification yet

  • hansip

    Hey guys, i wonder any of of you have the new X devices (XA1, XZs or XZP)? I’d like to ask is the old X interface is still available there? Where the lock screen is opaque and the clock is transparant? I’d like to have the old XZ lock screen like shown at the image above. Thanks. :)

  • Riho Piik

    Hi. You just have to apply one of the default (Blue, Black, Pink, Platinum) themes. That’s it.

  • Tomislav Matić

    Yes. Change theme and clock on lockscreen.

  • Tano Tona
  • Yesé

    Mate, what theme are you using?


  • sebaa123

    Hello, the theme name is: evening sea, my version is 1.1.0
    Also the update via OTA is 299 MB.

  • Florian
  • Khalid Noreddine

    Low sound speakers fixed?

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Really? I haven’t got July update also. I am using dual sim HK version. :|

  • Tano Tona

    Mine is single sim DE version, maybe you must wait a bit longer

  • Florian

    I didn’t noticed it before the update, so I can tell you…

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Let’s see. Hope to see august patch instead of July :D

  • Dark Terror

    I have a dual sim version too and i got august patch yesterday!

  • Wolf0491

    Hmm maybe they have different dual Sim models

  • Peter Karimi
  • hardik jadeja

    Which theme are you using?

  • Peter Karimi

    Material Infinity

  • G-UK

    Got it today on O2 in the UK.

  • dale kana

    Just updated mine. v7.1.1!

  • Juan Carlos

    Got it today for my Xperia X Compact!!! Thanks Sony!! :D

  • bartek010

    Got it today on my Xperia X. Is it only security update? It’s around 300 MB!

  • Saifuddin Adnan

    Hey @xperiablog I’ve received August security patch for Sony xperia xz premium too in india

  • Quentin Grs
  • martin

    What’s up with the xz premium dual HK version no updates from June……

  • washinma2424

    WTF I am still running the June Security!!!

  • Mark Permann

    Hey Quentin – does Nougat Night Mode work for you? I found the app I think you mentioned would enable it (by a slightly incorrect name) in a previous post:

    Would love to know before I allow the software update because, though I still have a 7.0 ROM, I know from prior experience that if I downgrade to it, I’ll have to reset the phone & reinstall software (I don’t recall the specifics but I remember that just flashing the prior ROM after upgrading to 7.1.1 was buggy)

  • Mark Permann

    Tried installing Night Mode Enabler to an Xperia X on the August ROM. It doesn’t work, so I doubt it would on the X Compact.

  • Quentin Grs

    This app isn’t available for 7.1.1’s phone. I’ve tested some apps and the built in night mode is not activable. It will only be possible to use night mode design by third party.

  • Naim Izzuddin

    Just updated my XZ

  • Mark Permann

    Thanks. I’m staying on 7.0 for now. Third party apps use a red overlay which lowers contrast. Sony enabled Night Mode for X Concept 7.1.2, wish they would push it out. Once you’ve used it you don’t want to go back.

    I also have the XZ Premium Dual (HK region variant) and no updates. However, Sony does say the provision of these updates depends on region and operator, and they could choose not to make these updates available.

  • martin

    I know but the phone isn’t from a operator. So the only variable is the region…..damn…. The same thing happen with my z5 slow af updates

  • Daniel Finke

    Just installed the update on my X Compact, O2 Germany. The most important thing for me: they fixed the low volume issue!

    Finally I can use my phone again as music player with cable headphones!

  • T.O.

    Anyone having background sync problems after upgrade such as notifications being delivered late, whatsapp web keeps disconnecting

  • Saddamjit Singh
  • Hema Balan

    Good update for xperia xz ram performance improved.. Google assistant changed and responsive than before…. Soomthy…. But little battery drain thats it overall good improvement from last update…

    Xperia XZ Dual

    Many many apps are continously stopping.

    Album and music app cannot access SD card, and many other apps as well.

    Album “There are no items in your collection.”

    “Music keeps stopping”

    audio nougat 7.0 >>>>>>>>>> audio nougat 7.1.1 august

  • Dhaval

    I found issue in my Xperia X after this update, while unlocking the device by swiping, the device is not asking for PIN, it is directly unlocking without PIN. After restarting the device it will again works fine for some time, and it is happening randomly.

    Xperia XZ Central Europe still on Jun :(

  • telcoM
  • Piponxs

    Press like if you are from Central Europe and still reading this in 2018

  • TucoPacifico

    Just need to throw it out. Swift Keyboard is a pile of utter #%#-!!!!! Thank God for xda and the unofficial Xperia Keyboard apk. My new XZ would be useless.

  • can you explain why ?
    i’ve just bought this phone and i’m learning what to keep and what to change

  • TucoPacifico

    1. Swipe-writing is 4x slower, word guessing is working much more clunky with Swift.
    2. 4x slower general feel
    3. Sometimes weird reactions.
    4. Just get the latest version 8.0.A.0.110 here: and compare how it works compared to Swift.

  • TucoPacifico
  • Piotreek35

    I am still on June :( unfortunate even Xperia Firm show only Jun for CE 1

  • simos

  • simos
