Here are the Sony Xperia phones that will get Android 8.0 Oreo

Sony unveiled a couple of new products at IFA 2017 yesterday, including two expected Xperia flagship and one odd and unexpected Android mid-ranger.

Beating LG to the punch this year, Sony proudly said that those two will launch with Oreo from the get go. Even better, Sony is sharing which smartphones will get updated to Android 8.0 in due time.

Sony axes “premium standard” line, including Xperia X,  X Compact

When Sony launched its new Xperia X line, some of the models lacked the punch to make them appealing as flagship devices. It turns out that the Sony received the numbers proving so as well.

Sony Xperia embraces smart devices, debuts Eye, Projector, Agent

MWC 2016 will perhaps be remembered as the day when Sony redefined the Xperia brand. A name that was once synonymous with smartphones is now being used to include a new class of devices with nothing really in common except for the fact that they are all meant to be "personalized and intelligent" devices. The Xperia Ear, which launches is summer, is the first of this breed. But Sony has a couple more devices and ideas up its sleeves, including an Xperia Eye "lifelogging" camera, an Xperia Projector, and an Xperia Agent home assistant.
