Xperia XA1 range gets December 2017 security patches

by XB on 19th December 2017

in Firmware, Xperia XA series

Sony Mobile has updated the firmware for the Xperia XA1 family, which now includes the 5 December 2017 Android security patches. Sony has kept the phones on Android 7.0, so there’s no big Android update just yet.

The Xperia XA1 sees its firmware number move from 40.0.A.6.162 to version 40.0.A.6.175, while the Xperia XA1 Ultra sees its build number from 42.0.A.4.101 to version 42.0.A.4.153. The Xperia XA1 Plus firmware has moved from 48.0.A.1.99 to 48.0.A.1.117.

Thanks Aouadj, Domingo and Mike!

  • Wait a second… G3125 is one of Xperia XA1’s model number . As seen on the picture above (right) , did it get new on-screen button just like on XA1+ with this update alongside XA1 Ultra or just a theme that changed the appearance of it?

    Why am I not getting November and December Security updates on my XA1 G3121?

  • Same as other Xperia updates (either major-update or security-patch-update) , it will be a phased-staged rollout , so it will be updated at different time . But if until certain time it won’t get one , possibly your carrier who decided not to do it .

    Great job by Sony for keeping the midrange devices updated. I hope they will continue to keep the xa1 series updated well into 2018.

    Maybe in january we get december security.
    September patch came in october for me.
    Z3+ and Z5 are getting security every 3 months.

    December 20th today.
    I thought at this point X and Xc would have 8.0 already.
    Last year the nougat rollout started in mid december.

    This happens for all brands.
    Your XA1 did not got month.
    Someone that lives in your location that owns XA1 might have it or not.

    Sometimes my Z3+ gets the patch 3 days after the firmware is released.
    But the june patch got almost 30 days to arrive here.

    Many users in my country are getting november patch on their S8 just in half december..

    Waiting for Oreo before getting the XA1 Plus.

  • Sony Xperia Ailesi wrote that XA1 devices should get Oreo in 2Q 2018 (March-April they wrote), so at least till than updates should keep coming.

    Not sure if they have some access to information not available for rest of us, but… maybe?

    That sounds about right. The original XA series and M series of years past would get a major Android update in late spring / early summer.

  • Sony needs to launch latest smartphone with new great features.

    I was looking forward for this patch thanks a lot for sharing.
