The Android 8.0 Oreo update has been out for a while now. However, given the fragmented nature of Android, it’s going to be a while before most devices get the latest iteration of Google’s mobile platform. Sony has now confirmed when the Xperia XZ Premium Android Oreo update is going to be released. Those who own this handset will have to wait until December to get a taste of Oreo on the Xperia XZ Premium.

Sony launched the Xperia XZ Premium earlier this year in February. The handset features a 5.5 inch 4K HDR display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor under the hood. It also features 4GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard storage as well as a 19 megapixel rear and 13 megapixel front camera.

The confirmation comes from Sony Japan so it’s likely talking about the release timeframe for the Xperia XZ Premium Android Oreo update in Japan only. However, it’s quite possible that the handset will receive this update in other markets around the same time as well.

All features and improvements that are part and parcel of the Android 8.0 Oreo update will be included in this release. Some of the software features that Sony introduced with the Oreo-powered Xperia XZ1, like the 3D creator, will be landing on the Xperia XZ Premium as well with the Oreo update.
