XA2 series must be getting updated in 2nd phase for sure. But XA1 series getting Pie has thin chance considering XA series never got more than one major update. XZ already got two updates 6->7->8.

If nothing else, a nice way to bow out from the smart phone business. "See, we actually were able to do something right! Bye!".

Too little, too late.

its just a starting list
XA2 is a confirm android 9 or even say android 10

When was Sony ever praised for mobile camera software? Never? They have a knack of devaluating their DSLR's and MILC's by taping their branding on phones, but I think even Sony has realised that's counter-productive these days.

But if it happens, that would be a record of some kind, yes?

Last month I bought Sony XA2 phone which I really like, I hope that phone is going to get Android P, in the past I think that Sony rolled out the update for other phones, I am really confused why the XA2 Ultra wasn't on the list....

Ellio74, 11 Aug 2018Major updates like these aren't just about adding features,... moreLDAC is Sony propitiatory, But they contribute it to Oreo for free ( So more people can make use of Sony's bluetooth speakers/headphones = more sales).

But it still requires developers to actually implement it and not all chipsets support it.

Just hope it's on the final list of devices to receive Pie

Geric.770, 11 Aug 2018It's was called Multi Window on Android KitKat Galaxy phone... moreFirst smartphone with 'Multi Window', later known as Split Screen was.. taaa daaa.. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (also first smartphone in the world with 3GB of RAM). But, that was in September 2013, and on Jelly Bean (4.3). Way, way, before Google = Nougat, yea we also have split screen :D
But, time change, today Samsung is no longer trendsetter in UI tweeks and inovation (Note series is), but some of OEM from new generation (Oppo, vivo, Xiaomi, OnePlus.. etc)..

Shanti Dope, 11 Aug 2018Those features work better on Android though. You see, And... moreSamsung's implementation of multi-window mode are miles ahead of Google's.

  • Hehe

Yah ya samsung fans bashes sony even for its camera, try to use manual mode, superior auto was always weak point of sony but the weakest point is that you dont know how to enter that manual :D anyway sony was good with updates hope XA1 plus also gets the slice of pie :)

I hope this came from Google! It's everything but great in my opinion, the Pixel pictures are overdone. I immediately notice a Pixel pictures and the resulting HDR "artefacts".
And don't be worried, people are still buying Sony for their camera capabilities ;)
