  • Sony - Android Authority

The company has confirmed to release Android Oreo to Xperia X, Xperia X Performance, Xperia XZ, Xperia X Compact, Xperia XZs, Xperia XA1, Xperia XA1 Ultra, Xperia Touch and Xperia XA1 Plus. This feature first debuted on Xperia XZ1 Compact and Xperia XZ1, allowing the smartphones to scan any objects and create a 3D render, which can be printed or shared on social media.

It was recently announced that the Xperia XZ Premium will be the first Sony phone to be updated to Android Oreo, and the new software is officially rolling out starting today, October 23. While we're assuming most audiophiles won't use wireless headphones to begin with, the presence of aptX might push a few more in that direction. As Sony promised, the 3D Creator arrives with the update.

Other new photography features in the Android 8.0 update includes Predictive Capture and autofocus burst.

Sony on Tuesday started the Android 8.0 Oreo upgrade for Xperia XZ Premium. Besides that, they can also have fun with these 3D stickers and upload them to 3D communities such as Sketchfab or bring them to life as avatars with the camera's AR effect options, third-party apps or as a live wallpaper. So there is Predictive Capture which automatically starts taking pictures of the subject when it detects a smile.
