Sony Mobile has released a minor firmware update for the Xperia XA1 series of phones that adds the 6 November 2017 Android security patch. All handsets remain on Android 7.0, so we’re not seeing any major Android upgrades for these phones just yet.

The recently launched Xperia XA1 Plus sees its first firmware update, moving the build number from 48.0.A.1.66 to 48.0.A.1.99. The 5-inch Xperia XA1’s build number moves from 40.0.A.6.135 to version 40.0.A.6.162, while the 6-inch Xperia XA 1 Ultra’s build number moves from 42.0.A.4.101 to 42.0.A.4.133. We’re not sure whether these phones will get Android 7.1.1 anytime soon, or Sony may decide to skip it and move straight to Oreo. Let us know any changes you’ve noticed in this latest update.
