Xperia 1, Xperia 5 get Android 11 update a month early

With very few smartphones released each year, you'd think that Sony would have a handle on getting Android updates out fast. Its reported timetable for Android 11 rollout, however, didn't give that much hope. Now it seems that Sony is picking up the pace and has just started pushing the latest Android version to its nearly two-year-old smartphone, perhaps sparking hope that the company is indeed turning over a new leaf.

It's getting harder and harder to root for Sony's Xperia smartphones. Despite their pedigree, the company has consistently failed to push out devices that would make consumers remember its place in mobile market history.

Xperia 5 selfie camera scores poorly on DxOMark

Sony isn't giving up the fight, at least not yet. It is stubbornly holding on to what little it has left in the market, making sure that it launches a phone even twice a year. For 2019, that's the Xperia 1 and its smaller doppelganger, the Xperia 5. Unfortunately, if this is the best that Sony has to offer, it might not last long in that game, especially if it can't even hold a candle against more affordable smartphones with better front-facing cameras for taking those oh so popular selfies.
