Xperia XZ Premium updated with August security patch (45.0.A.7.120)

by XB on 10th August 2017

in Firmware, Xperia X series


Sony Mobile has updated the Xperia XZ Premium moving the build number from 45.0.A.7.90 to version 45.0.A.7.120. The latest update adds the 1 August 2017 Android security patch, with few other differences. Sony has still not added double tap to wake, but we hope this is on the company’s agenda at some point. If you’ve updated, let us know your impressions in the comments below.

Thanks Adrian, Dennis, Fausto, PPG, Saifuddin, Tano and Tony!

    Double tap to sleep, double tap to wake and screen recording. Waiting for those to reappear in my phone, as the previous one, the Z5P had them all.

  • azzido

    Wow, they finally copy pasted this code from google…

    I am so impressed.
    Dead man walking.

    The funny thing I noticed is this clock widget on the picture above. My xz premium does kot have exactly same one as date for me is under first bigger hour number (in this case 10) and not under minutes as shown above. Anyone has the same? So are we all fooled with photoshop??? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6617974e95bb58486e03dc924123f53feb6515bfb67aa0e072c0078f88c6e4a4.png

  • the clock on the screenshot in the article shows a lockscreen clock, while you posted a homescreen widget.

  • azzido

    The funny thing is I already received email notification stating the update is available for my device and I checked it in both phone itself and via Xperia companion and no updates there :)

    Fake news, they should synchronize it and inform once it is really ready.

    Well, communication was never their strong skill :D

  • Moisés

    I love screen recording..

  • mountain

    Actually, Sony copy and paste the code to google, and then copy back from google, if you get what I mean

  • Alex B.

    Using double tap too sleep and wake up with Nova Launcher.

  • Yasir Fawad

    Double tap to sleep is good, but I find double tap to wake a bit disturbing. It registers touch upon skin also. Which may be a bit frustrating, also it results in more battery consumption.

  • hansip

    and you complain now? sheezz i bet you complain when Sony does the opposite too like they used to be..

  • hansip

    While double tap to wake is good, imo the FPR on power button will be useless/redundant step. as a company i agree with how Sony thinks about this, but as personal opinion, more option is greater still, but not that necessary/urgent in my list.

  • azzido

    No I would not, who cares about the security patches? I do care about bug fixes and improvements we are not getting… Device is simply abandoned in this regard.

  • Marko

    I got the update for my XZP before the news here in XP-blog. So no fake at all.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    I found myself unlocking the phone in my pocket with that function on so I disabled it :p was so annoying to pick up the phone and close all the programs I accidentally opened while the phone was unlocked in my pocket xD Sometimes I even phoned some contacts on my phone by accident hehe :p

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Every new firmware update do include bug fixes and performance enhances aswell so don’t complain about something you don’t understand to begin with :)

  • RuggeD_XBoY

    I hope Sony hasn’t given up this early on the Xperia XZs. My device is still on the February patch 0_o

  • Talos the Robot

    I got the update too. Apart from the latest security patch i didn’t notice any difference.

  • Francis Troy Fabrigas

    Or maybe you’re under a carrier who hasn’t released the update yet, because as far as I know, the XZs is in line with the XZ Premium and XZ in security patches, which both are now having August 2017 security update.

  • Francis Troy Fabrigas

    Less gimmicks on a phone is what makes Sony phones a hell lot faster than any other devices.
    People complain that Sony phones have too less features on a smartphone, when even Samsung’s or other’s additional features can be found in the Play Store and they often do a better job.

    For instance, Sony removed the screen recording feature because there’s an app in the Play Store called AZ Screen Recording, which does what the feature they removed, but can be removed manually if the user doesn’t want to use it or don’t need it.
    But you now have to live with Bixby in your life with your smartphone.

  • xXENDER FREAKXx

    That is the brand new clock widget

  • RuggeD_XBoY

    No it’s not my carrier since carriers in my country sell unlocked Xperia devices that don’t come with carrier bloatware. A friend of mine got his XZ Premium from the same carrier as me, but he got the update mentioned in the article. I have yet to receive any updates since I bought my XZs…

  • James Gaston (Raitwo)

    try to manually update your phone, maybe it wasn’t release on your country

  • NinJy

    Every new firmware update do include dumb comments on Internet too, so…

  • Moisés

    Did you root your phone?

  • hansip

    Unfortunately some people doesn’t even know that Play store exists. they just use their phone as is. So they complained that they can’t do anything on it.

  • alishayzadag

    How could you use it to wakeup?

  • RuggeD_XBoY

    Nope

  • RuggeD_XBoY

    Yeah the one update Sony released didn’t make it to Europe :/ I’ll just wait for the OTA.

  • I just wish Sony can bring the Night mode back

  • Alex B.

    In smartphone settings -> Display -> enable tap to wake up. In Nova -> settings -> gestures & input -> double tap action choose screen lock. I am using Nova Prime

  • Ambroos

    I wouldn’t count on it. Screen recording has been unavailable on all X-devices. There are plenty of third-party apps that can do screen recording so I don’t think it’s hugely necessary.

  • JC

    It is available, just not for you.

  • Tomislav Matić

    Flash new firmware with Flashtool.

    I tried it with my XZ Premium but it is not working :( :( :(
    I really wanted to have hdr+ pictures as ir does great on pixel devices, especially in low light. Sony’s hdr mode is shit…

    Anyone elses speakers louder now after the update? It finally sounds louder then a mouse whisper at low volume and pretty loud when high.

  • azzido

    Yes, they specifically excluded my particular device. Keep dreaming.

  • JC

    Well, everyone got it but you, so…

  • cocorico

    I still don’t have it on my XPeria XZ (France)…

  • iArvee

    Hahahahaha. Oh my azzido. Just because we have it, doesn’t mean everyone will get it at the same time. If you can’t wait, then just download and flash the FTF. I’m assuming you don’t know how to do that either.

    No. The point is I already received e-mail notification that new software is available long time ago, whilebit is not. Crap comnunication of Sorry. I am not waiting for it at all, it is justmonthly sec update from google, not from sony. Nothing new, no bug fixes, no distortion fix, no new features / functions, simply nothing interesting. Just a number increase. That’s it. Hard to be excited. And yes, I know how flashtool works as I was using it in the past, but I am not sure it it already works for this device.
