Sony Xperia R1 and Xperia R1

Sony-Xperia-R1-Plus

Sony previous year launched its budget Xperia R1, R1 Plus smartphones in India and promised to bring Android 8.0 Oreo updates to them later.

The update brings all of the new features that are part and parcel of Android 8.0 Oreo.

Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) CEO Sells 250 Shares of Stock
Foster & Motley Inc decreased its stake in Bunge Ltd. (BG) by 8.06% based on its latest 2017Q3 regulatory filing with the SEC. Rathbone Brothers Plc has 3.59% invested in Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN ) on Wednesday, May 31 with " Buy " rating.

This new Android 8.0 Oreo update will also bring stock Android 8.0 Oreo features like Notification Channels, improved background limits, Snooze Notifications, Picture in Picture mode to open videos on a floating popup window. Sony doesn't heavily customize the user interface on their smartphones but you might get some icons and some settings which will be different from the stock Android OS. The Xperia actions feature is said to intelligently suggest actions to users based on their usage. Sony will bring a couple of its own features such as Xperia actions, which makes it easier to access apps that you use the most. Since this is a major Android platform update the file size is quite large at 1.7GB so users will certainly want to connect their device to a good Wi-Fi network before they download the update.

The Xperia R1 duo has Sony' signature design language, and there's a 5.2-inch HD display on the front. While the former comes with 16GB internal storage coupled with 2GB RAM, the latter offers 32GB internal storage and 3GB RAM. Both the smartphones' build numbers will be pushed to S001011_180224. Both smartphones have a 13-megapixel camera at the rear with Predictive Hybrid Autofocus and an LED flash. Connectivity features offered by the two smartphones include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, USB Type-C port, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, and 4G VoLTE. The carrier will eventually release the update for other compatible LG handsets as well down the road. Both phones are backed by a 2620mAh capacity battery, which is slightly on the smaller side when compared to their competition. Now, if you are having a Xperia R1 and R1 Plus and are residing in India then you will receive the update to Android 8.0 Oreo on your device automatically via an over-the-air update.
