Sony launches Android 12 for its mid-range Xperia 10 II

Sony confirmed last month that two of their mid-range smartphones will receive Android 12 updates very soon: the Xperia 10 II and Xperia 10 III. Although the Japanese company did not reveal when exactly these phones will get the update, we are pleased to report that at least one of these phones is getting Android 12 right now. Reddit users recently confirmed that they have received the long awaited Android 12 update on their Xperia 10 II devices (via XDA developers). However, the update appears to be rolling out in only one region at the moment: Southeast Asia. The update weighs around 900 MB and includes the March security patch.

The Xperia 10 II was officially unveiled back in February 202 and was launched in the market in May. After receiving Android 11 last year, the mid-range phone now gets its last major Android OS update, unless Sony decides it’s worth an extra next year.

Sony has been a bit slow with the rollout of Android 12, but it seems that the Japanese company has been increasing the pace of these releases lately. Hopefully, more Xperia phones will get Android 12 sooner rather than later, not only Xperia 10 II and Xperia 10 III, which have already been confirmed.
