Xz1 compact update to android 9

Hi everybody, I just bought an xz1 compact from a website, clicksmart.it.

The phone arrived this morning, all Perfect, exept the absence of the headphones. Bug the real problem is that the software is still Android 8.0! I checked everywere, even with the imei, but i can't receive the update. Anyone else in my situation?

 

PS: sorry for my English!

Re: Xz1 compact update to android 9

Hey! Many others experience this problem. It seems to be because of regional or vendor software locks. I have the "global firmware" and receive updates super quickly after roll out, but people with a German or Vodafone software seem to be stuck on Android 8.0 or 8.1. However Oreo (especially the final version of 8.1) is pretty good and guarantees an exceptional battery life (especially with max Stamina mode) in contrast to Pie (9).

Xperia XZ1 and Android Pie

My Xperia didn't receive update from Octomber. I did not get Android Pie, no Security Update for November, no Security Update for December.

Practically I don't have Support on a device that has 1 year on market.

@jajaha, @Gogol, @Underboiler;

 

The updates are released gradually according to the costumization version of your device firmware, check yours in the service menu and the released updates in Xpericheck.com. 

As a matter of fact Sony is one of the first brands in releasing updates.

I have Customized DE and until Octomber I received updates every month. Something happened in Octomber because my device stopped receiving updates and I want to know what happened.
