Xperia XZ looks like it's getting an update, rolling now in some countries

[ Edited ]

Just one of those annoying reminders. I thought I'd leave the old thread alone now, since it started off with discussion about Android 7.1.1, and XZ users have had Oreo for a short while now; well... unless they didn't want it, or flashed a custom ROM or something.

 

To get to the point of this post: As you can see from this screengrab of XperiFirm, people like South Korea, Russia, and Turkey have started receiving the update.

 

I hope you recognise/remember my name from the other "XZ updates" This is just a heads-up, as I think Chris_K requested.in this sort of situation - i.e. Google have obviously released it, but a lot of carriers haven't picked it up yet (or maybe they have and are still working on it).

 

Cheers for your hard work and any information.

 

The fact that it's the second-from-last number changing, and not jut the last 3 digits makes me think that it could be more than December's security updates? A wild guess, there.

It's a security update and initial Oreo release bug fix.
It'll arrive on devices as per the usual cycle.
