Sony Xperia XZ Premium under performs with Android 9.0 Pie, spotted on Geekbench

13 September 2018 2

Google announced Android P as Android Pie officially about a month ago and made it ready for the prime time. This means that a growing number of OEMs would be able to release the new software update to their smartphones. Pixel and Essential smartphones already begin receiving their latest Android OS update, Sony had plans to initiate the roll out starting from September.

Earlier, Sony announced that all Xperia smartphones would be receiving the Android Pie update and now the turn is right on for Sony Xperia XZ Premium which is the oldest smartphone in the Xperia lineup. The official release date of the Android Pie rolling out to the aforementioned model would be in November though the exact date isn’t confirmed yet.


The information came out from the popular benchmarking website Geekbench where the Xperia XZ Premium was spotted for the test. Considering the results, it seems that the software (Android Pie) isn’t yet ready for the prime time knowing how it produced lower results than what it should on a Snapdragon 835 processor. The single core results were lower while the score should have been in the 1,900 range, which clearly means that there is yet some work to be done in the latest build that would be released to the public.

All of the Xperia XZ models that comes right after XZ Premium in the lineup would be receiving Android Pie update. Sony supports two years of major software updates.
