Google announced Android 8.0 Oreo – the latest version of Android – back in August, and, soon after that, Japanese smartphone brand Sony shared a list of smartphones that would get the Oreo update. The list consisted of 10 smartphones, which also included the Xperia XZ and Xperia XZs. Well, after more than two and a half months from confirming the Oreo update for Xperia XZ and XZs, Sony has now started rolling out the latest version of Android for both these smartphones.
