Sony Mobile has been rolling a new firmware update for the Xperia XZ and XZs smartphones over the last week or so. The update moves the build number from 41.3.A.2.157 to version 41.3.A.2.171, and adds the 1 August 2018 Android security patches.
The Xperia X Performance used to receive the same builds at the same time as the XZ/XZs models, but currently remains on June 2018 security patches (build 41.3.A.2.149). We don’t know if this means that Sony has stopped updates for the X Performance, or whether it is not seeing the same monthly security release schedule as seen with the XZ/XZs models.
Thanks Doume, Hock, Noben, Rabache and Yeison!
