in Firmware, Xperia XA series

Sony Mobile released a firmware update for the Xperia XA a few weeks back that updated the security patch from 5 August 2017 to 6 November 2017. The new update moves the build number from 33.3.A.1.97 to version 33.3.A.1.115.

However, this update is only live on two variants of the Xperia XA – the single SIM F3111 and F3113. Sony has not updated any of the other three Xperia XA variants to this new firmware build. The FTF firmware files are available to download below.

  • I already saw this pattern since few months ago since then . If the original Xperia XA or and XA Ultra gets security patches , this could be Sony hinted us a security patch for Z3+ , Z4 Tablet and Z5 family will arrived not long after XA got one .

  • It seems to be true, but this firmware for XA was out on 18/19 November. XperiaBlog seems to had a lag :P
    So there was more than a month for Sony to update Z5 line, but all I know is that Xperia Aliesi thinks that there will be something for Z5 in January.

    Im’ sure of a date as I already created .ftfs than and I’m pretty sure I reported it to XperiaBlog’s Team.

    Happy to see Sony keeping the 2016 mid–rangers updated past their usual update pattern. Past mid rangers got about a year of updates and that was it.

  • Yup , they pretty much learned everything after they failed to get their fan-beloved Z3 a Nougat-love .

  • It wan’t their fault! It was said so many times, that Google said that no Nougat for nonVulkan devices, which meant that Sony could give Nougat for Z2/Z3 series, but without Google Services and that would be stupid move.
    Without Google Services they would be just a crap for 90%+ users…

    And I know that Google broke this “rule” giving Nougat for Android One 1st gen, but blame Google for that, not Sony…

  • I know it wasn’t their fault . But i think after that incident , Sony got their update faster than before .

  • Sorry. I just cannot stand people who groan about updates, when Sony gives more than others (not counting Google). Even “the best form the best”, Samsung, is having some problems with memory and remembering older devices…
