Sony Xperia X and X Compact get Android 8.0 Oreo

by John_A

The build number for both phones changes to 34.4.A.0.364.

Back in 2016, Sony impressed us with the release of the Xperia X and Xperia X Compact. The former is what Alex Dobie referred to as “the Android workhorse”, whereas the latter offered one of the best user experiences at the time for a small-sized phone. Now in early 2018, both phones are getting new life with updates to Android 8.0 Oreo.


The Oreo update changes the build number of the phones from 34.3.A.0.252 to 34.4.A.0.364, and each phone gets the standard array of Oreo goodies you’ve come to expect – including picture-in-picture, Oreo’s new emoji style, faster performance, and quite a lot more.

When it comes to Oreo updates, Sony’s been one of the better companies in regards to updating as many of their phones as quickly as possible. Since Oreo’s release, we’ve seen it pushed to the Xperia XZ/XZs, Xperia XZ Premium, and more.

On a similar note, Oreo for the Xperia X and X Compact comes just a few days after Sony confirmed it releases software updates for its flagship phones for two years after their release.
