Sony Android 12 update list
Sony has a few devices in the market as compared to other tech giants like Samsung and Redmi. However, Sony is way ahead of those OEMs who launch a few devices like One Plus, LG but doing great when it comes to the android updates.
Earlier, Sony Devices are used to be criticized by the users for not rolling out the Android update regularly. They used to launch new devices instead of updating the android version in the existing devices. But now, the situation is absolutely different. They are not only releasing android updates regularly but they are the first among the OEMs that already launch Android 11 for all the devices.
After updating all the eligible devices up to Android 11, they are now looking forward to the android 12 update. however, there is no official announcement from Sony yet.
