in Android, Firmware


Sony Mobile has created a new infographic that helps to explain all of the processes involved in new software updates. It highlights the step from when Google announces a new Android update, to when it arrives at Sony Mobile, before eventually hitting your Sony Xperia device.

For those that always wonder why there can be a long delay in receiving updates, hopefully the infographic below makes you appreciate all of the work needed to take place before you receive that next big Android update.

Thanks Diogo and Moisés!

    Interesting

  • shenoy

    Sony is d expert…

  • Orion X

    Very nice infograph, Kudos for them doing so much with such a small development team,They really are committed. Here’s hoping they get more R&D expenditures in the future.

  • Makiz

    Monitoring social media and forums? Nice, bring back the double tap to wake now.

  • xXENDER FREAKXx

    Are u using the fingerprint enabled one? Because if that is the cause then I would think that double Tap-To-Wake isn’t necessary, since u have the fingerprint sensor enabled.

  • Makiz

    The thing is that when I want to just check the time or my notifications without unlocking the screen and while the phone is sitting on a table, double tap to wake is very useful and it’s not coming from me only, there are plenty of people out there complaining for this missing feature since the XZ Premium.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Precisely, cause sometimes when I press the power button it just unlocks the phone and goes straight to the home-screen or the app I was using last. I don’t need that. I mean it’s really great and so fast but I wanna check time and recent notifications without a hassle.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Then please bring Full CameraAPI2 and OIS+EIS. Why the hold back, release the KRAKEN.

  • PatQQ

    Yeah… Monitor forums and social media for user feedback? lol
    How long since CameraAPI2? Double-tap to wake? so we can prolong the power button or when we have dirty hands and just want to check our notification. Or when we are in our trusted places with no need for fingerprint, double tapping is more comfortable when they phone is on the table.

  • It’s a SONY.

  • Vitali

    There is actually a solution for that, you can buy a book case that turns the screen on and off with magnet. It is faster and more battery efficient..

  • Vitali

    Adding OIS is not something their software update development team is actually capable of doing you know…

  • G-UK

    What a patronising experiment in “social media”. People get paid loads and loads to come out with this absolute guff. It’s insulting to anyone over the age of about 10.

    Sony: Does this translate to Japanese? STOP PAYING PEOPLE TO DESIGN EMOTICONS, SIMPLY PUSH UPDATES SOONER. Those who don’t know or care about it won’t… know or care, and those who do, will. It’s not that hard to work ou how to please your users.

    There is a difference between saying that you will do things, and actually doing things. The people who buy your flagships know this.

  • JC

    I think they mean THEIR social media pages.

  • JC

    I think you mean EMOJIs

  • GabrielZorrilla

    Use a non registered finger and that’s it.

  • Talos the Robot

    My XZ Premium says a big THANK YOU for the Oreo update! You never go wrong with Sony!

  • Luis

    You fool. Dont you realize there process has surpassed the other manufacturers? They are on the right path. They are the ones firat releasing Gogle updates. HTC, LG, Samsung, even OnePlus don’t have Oreo.

  • babylonbwoy

    They already did the same infographie few years ago..

  • babylonbwoy

    They make a lot of testing, that’s why they release bugfree ROM each update…

  • babylonbwoy

    Because Sony user are beta testing buggy rom..

  • Ryuzaki Raiga

    slow update complain, fast upate also complain.

  • Nirmal Kapopara

    I m waiting for oreo upgrade in xz dual

  • Zayed Kotayba

    Nice one

  • iia3ezu

    Sony-specific additions

    …our own feature upgrades…

    So the bloatware and crapware gets put in at Stage 5. Point duly noted.

    I guess ‘adding Korean language input’ was omitted from Stage 4? ‘Implement the Basics’

  • nfs2010

    Took a very long journey of updates in an hour – cracked the screen of Z3+ for the second time and got an XZP – and it’s been going been through all updates sequentially (OTA). Why can’t it just jump to the latest one – WTH

    All manufacturers could save a lot of time and money by reducing their “Sony-fication” stage. If I were tasked with running Sony this is one of the first things I would do. I would only carry over the camera, playstation and walkman, and stamina apps. All other Sony specific apps would be discontinued and these engineers would be be assigned to more meaningful roles.

  • Wolf0491

    Are you on a specific carrier? Mine updated over a week ago or so. It never notified me though I had to go into settings and check for the update.

  • Ararat Khlghatyan

    I do not even have the last nougat

  • Wolf0491

    must be the specific model not sure. I also have a 8142 though so that is strange

  • azzido

    Hi all,
    I just wanted to show you what kind of marketing I would expect from Sont Mobile:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZVRTQe0yrk

    This movie is just perfect, very dynamic, speed, excellent music and picture.
    Just makes you wanna buy it. Wow effect. Impressive.

    Now compare it to recent ads from Sony: slow, too short, not emotional.

    So I am not posting it to market other products, but just to show Sony the way they should go.
    Think about it.

  • Ararat Khlghatyan

    Facebook as you find?

  • deekbee

    Sony is amongst the best when it comes to camera sensors and overall physical design – absolutely brilliant. Shame the same cannot be said about their camera application and image processing; they need some people from the camera division to head over to the mobile side and give them some lessons.

  • Ryuzaki Raiga

    i never see korean use sony xperia……mostly they use samsung, iphone or LG maybe pantech

    It shoulda been greater if release with a new style of UI, to replace current one, as years Xperia never move over the look inside!
