Earlier today Sony started rolling out Android 8.0 to its Xperia XZ Premium with the Xperia XZ1, XZ1 Compact, X, X Performance, XZ, X Compact, XZs, XA1, XA1 Ultra, XA1 Plus and Xperia Touch to follow.
Android 8.0 Oreo brings a lot of improvements like faster performance, picture in picture mode, tooltips and notification dots. Sony has a short promo video, which neatly shows you some of the key benefits of Android’s new major release.
One of Android 8.0’s most useful new features is contextual shortcuts – when you highlight a phone number or address you’ll be given appropriate actions like Call or Navigate.
Gaming Actions will automatically maximize performance and block notifications when you’re gaming.
