Sony is the latest company to update their latest flagships to Android 12. The Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III are now getting the latest OS by Google with a build number 61.1.A.1.149. First in line are dual-SIM variants (model numbers XQ-BC72 and XQ-BQ72), with other versions expected to follow very soon.

The update brings plenty of new features for Sony Xperia owners. The company posted a convenient guide on its website, introducing the best elements of the new A12 experience (or should we say xperia-nce). The OS offers long screenshots, one-handed operation and a notification, telling users when their mic and camera are used.

This major update comes from OTA and is suggested to be downloaded over a Wi-Fi connection. If there isn’t a notification, users should head to the Software update section to see whether the package has arrived. Power users can already make the switch and download the firmware, but they have to use additional hardware for a manual flash and clean install.
