For those who have been questioning what sort of software program help to anticipate from Sony’s newest flagship smartphone, the Xperia 1 III, we’ve got the reply for you and it’s possible you’ll not prefer it.
In keeping with Sony Netherlands, the Xperia 1 III is getting one main Android replace and two years of month-to-month safety updates. That is it.
We actually hope this can be a mistake – that somebody in Sony’s staff within the Netherlands was misinformed or one thing, as a result of in any other case that is fairly ridiculous. We have seen a bunch of Android system producers left and proper enhance their software program help home windows no less than for the flagships – Samsung, OnePlus, Oppo, and so forth. Even Google is rumored to up the variety of years it is supporting Pixels beginning with the Pixel 6 era coming this fall.
And through all this, Sony appears to be in a wholly completely different universe. Let’s hope the Japanese firm will quickly situation an announcement saying this was all a misunderstanding or one thing like that. As a result of if it would not, it’s possible you’ll need to assume twice about shelling out €1,299 for a cellphone that may get the identical variety of main Android updates as a €200 OnePlus Nord N-series handset.
