Our Android 8.0 Oreo* rollout starts from today**, with Xperia XZ Premium*** – some of the neat new features for this device include:

3D Creator – Our acclaimed 3D scanning feature first introduced with Xperia XZ1 and XZ1 Compact. It lets you scan your face, head, food or any object, rendering it as a 3D avatar or free-form image in less than 60 seconds, and makes it easy to share on social media with friends or 3D print

Predictive Capture (smile) – Never miss an unexpected 🙂 again, as Predictive Capture automatically starts buffering images when it detects a smile (even before you press the shutter button), allowing you to pick the best from a selection of up to four shots

Autofocus burst – Recognises, tracks and captures sequences of moving objects in sharp focus for blur-free action shots

Improved sound quality – Tuning improvements to the front-facing stereo speakers, and Qualcomm® aptX™ HD audio**** support for high-quality sounds when using wireless headphones

App Shortcuts – Re-imagined app shortcuts, which allow easy access to actions menus by long pressing the app icon

Software rollouts are a phased process, so please check in with your local operator and watch for the notification – be sure to follow @SonyMobileNews for all the latest as it happens.
