Sony has been rolling out a number of firmware updates over the last week, which has moved the Android security patches to July 2020 for various handsets. The Xperia smartphones that have been updated with the July 2020 patches include the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 with build number 55.1.A.9.52. The Xperia XZ2 and XZ3 family have seen its build number move to version 52.1.A.3.49.
Sony’s 2020 super mid-ranger, the Xperia 10 II (Mark 2) is also updated to July 2020 patches, with new build number 59.0.A.6.24. Lastly, Sony’s 2020 budget handset, the Xperia L4 has seen its first update with build number 57.0.A.2.179, which moves the Android security patch from March 2020 to May 2020.
Unfortunately Sony does not provide any changelogs, so we imagine most of the changes are very light and most likely bug fixes/performance enhancements. If you have updated to any of these recent updates, please let us know your impressions in the comments below.
