Re: No android Oreo on my Xperia X in the UK

Hi there, 


I am in New Zealand, and loaded EE firmware of the latest Nougat, I have been notified there is v. 34.4.A.0.364 available, and I can confirm this on xperifirm. 


I have tried OTA and via companion, says my hardware is up to date. Can you advise?

Re: Android 8.1

Hi @Galiaroth,


Software updates are released at different times depending on the operator, market, region or country. Therefore, we cannot give you an exact date for when a specific update will be available for your device. In addition, network operators and specific markets may choose not to avail of the updates for specific models.

Once the update is customised by Sony it would then be passed on to the service providers to make any required adjustments for their network.

Please be aware that if your handset has originated outside your region this can also cause a delay in the release.


Once the software is ready to be downloaded on your unit, you will receive a notification on your phone advising of the option to update.


For further information regarding the approval process please see here.

Because it hasn't been approved/released in your country and/or by your carrier network.
