Updates are way behind for HK and TW region for Xperia XZ1 Dual SIM

I got a phone recently from an online retailer in Canada which is for HK region. The only problem with the phone is it is not getting monthly security updates. The security patch level is for December which is not acceptale for a phone that is updated all over different regions:

I know I have the option of flashing a firmware from another region but I prefer to not mess with the software.

 

Is there any way to know what is the setback or what kind of region exclusive changes are necessary for the security updates that makes this delay or not getting updates altogether?

Re: Android oreo Belgium ...

Your firmware version possibly rolls out slower, or with bigger delay, to be more precise..

 

Can you advise your firmware version?

You can check how most of them to on xpericheck.com . I presume it's customized BE which according to xpericheck has an average update time of 67 days. 

 

That's not good the way I see it. I'd honestly recommend switching to a faster track, like customized DE . You do have to do it through flashtool though.
