Android 8.1 ETA? (can't search forum for "8.1")

Sorry if this post is duplicate but forum search capability does not recognize "8.1" as a search term, instead sees just the "8" which of course returns a zillion hits.

 

Thought 8.1 might start rolling by February . . . any official or rumored ETA?

I think we won't get 8.1 soon. Maybe summer. More interesting when next patch with known problems comes out.

Last year, the current flagship at the time (XZ) recieved the android 7.1 update on the 25th of April. So late April ,Android 8.1 will go for the XZ2 and XZ2 Compact and late may for the XZP,XZ1 and XZ1C.

Just like any other update, there's no info on this.

Android 8.1

I've been wondering if any of Xperia (including XZ1 of course) will receive Android 8.1 update?

It seems some OEM, like Essential, Moto, are.

Anyone has any idea?
