Open Devices 2016 adds faster kernels and newer camera framework, Sony lists supported devices

31 December 2016 0

While manufacturing a sleek looking and high performing smartphone and keeping it durable can be among Sony's bag of traits, certainly marketing and enterprising their product hasn't been their strongest suit.

With that being said, Sony is looking forward to embracing Open Devices having embraced it with open arms for a year now, to render more development and bring AOSP like interface to its devices.

The company published a post on their blog, the Developer World, speaking about a list of devices it plans to support along with the improved camera add-ons among the devices. The Open Device support has been added to the Xperia X series which includes the Xperia X and the Xperia X Compact as well as to the greater extent of the Z series.


Newer kernels are in development to tweak in for a better performance of their phones. A section has also been added as part of their program to bring in more interaction between the developers and their users.

The statement also boasts about improvements in camera functionality with the phones along the Z and X series already being upgraded to a newer camera framework. This improves the autofocus capability and the image stability within the camera, though the company is in regular try-outs to improve the functioning overall.
