Sony-Xperia-R1-Plus

Sony launched the mid-range smartphones, the Xperia R1 and Xperia R1 Plus, exclusively for the Indian market in October previous year.

The new Oreo update comes with a feature that reminds you of the unfinished tasks like email in the drafts.

The Android Oreo update brings all the new features introduced by Google to both the phones such as the Picture-in-Picture mode, autofill, notification channels and more. The update also brings a feature called Xperia Actions which learns about your apps usage and will suggest you new games and apps to download.

The Sony Xperia R1 and Xperia R1 Plus smartphones both sport a 5.2-inch display with 720 x 1280 HD resolution and are powered by Qualcomm's octa-core Snapdragon 430 chipset. The Xperia R1 offers 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, while the R1 Plus offers 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

ASUS said all ZF3 and 4 variants would be updated to Android Oreo "by the second half of 2018", and there are still plenty of models left.

The Xperia R1 mid-range handsets bear a 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash.

The update brings all of the new features that are part and parcel of Android 8.0 Oreo. For the front, there is an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling. Both phones are backed by a 2620mAh capacity battery, which is slightly on the smaller side when compared to their competition. Currently, the update is being rolled out in India, Taiwan, and Italy. As promised, the rollout of the software update began last week for all eligible handsets. Unfortunately, the update only includes the January security patch and not the latest one from March or even February. The update roll out is confirmed by Sony India itself on Twitter, however, several users are posting about the update roll out the status on the Sonymobile forums page.
