    40.0.A.6.189 for XA1
    48.0.A.1.131 for XA1+
    41.3.A.2.58 for XZ

    All seem to be new too …

  • Sami Sawani

    Could you please tell me how you knew about the XZ new build number?

  • Vaibhav Tanwar

    When the oreo version is coming for Xperia X??

  • Sami Sawani

    I believe this build number is for the single sim variant. What about the duel sim?

    Considering that this still 7.0, and there is a 7.1 to go through, I am not holding my breath for Oreo…

  • Emilio Martinez

    I’m not sure we will get 7.1 we will probably go directly to 8.0 from 7.0

  • Thierry

    Possibly. Still, not holding my breath. Already thinking of upgrading to the XA4 Ultra when my contract is done though (assuming that model is born)

  • Anurag jain

    not true.

  • Anurag jain

    Sony never goes to in between numbers in their mid range devices. From 7.0 it will directly go to 8.0

  • Anurag jain

    Xa2 Ultra launched with dual front camera but no bokeh mode. Disappointing. Hopefully they will bring it in Xa3 Ultra

  • Thierry

    Well, that’s good to know then. So we may expect Oreo about any time.
