Sony has just made available its 3.67 firmware update package developed for its PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV consoles, which includes the familiar improvements regarding the system quality performance.
If you consider applying this update on your device, you can do so via 3 methods: using any wireless network available, connecting the device to a computer or PlayStation 3 system (only for PS Vita), or through a compatible memory card on which you have priorly copied the new firmware.
Sony recently filed a trademark application with the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office), for the "Dynamic Vibration System". This trademark is believed to be a form of optical image stabilisation (OIS), which could be heading to Xperia smartphones as early as 2018. Adding OIS to its Xperia phones has been a much requested feature from Sony fans for years.
Sony has announced that it will introduce the CFast memory card format to its professional range in the first quarter of next year, and odd and exciting move when you consider that CFast 2.0 competes directly with the XQD card format Sony helped pioneer.
The series will launch with three memory cards that boast maximum read and write speeds of 530MB/s and 510MB/s, respectively. These G-series cards will be aimed at cinematographers and those shooting high bit-rate video, as well as stills photographers working with high frame rate cameras like the Canon 1DX Mark II.
Those who own a Sony Xperia X Performance should keep an eye out for a firmware update notification today as the company has started rolling out the Oreo update for this device. Sony has been on a roll recently with the Oreo update for some of its handsets. It released Oreo for the Xperia XZ and XZs merely days ago. When those devices received Oreo, it was clear that the Xperia X Performance would also end up getting the Oreo update in the very near future.
Sony launched the Xperia X Performance in February last year. It came with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. It was updated to Android 7.1 Nougat in November last year. Oreo is likely the last major Android platform update that this device is ever going to get.
