Sony Xperia 1 III will only get one major Android update New Update

If you were wondering what kind of software support to expect from Sony’s latest flagship smartphone, the  we have the answer for you and you may not like it.

According to Sony Netherlands, the Xperia 1 III is getting one major Android update and two years of monthly security updates. That’s it.

Sony Xperia 1 III will only get one major Android update

We really hope this is a mistake – that someone in Sony’s team in the Netherlands was misinformed or something, because otherwise this is pretty ridiculous. We’ve seen a bunch of Android device manufacturers left and right increase their software support windows at least for the flagships – Samsung, OnePlus, Oppo, and so on. Even Google is rumored to up the number of years it’s supporting Pixels starting with the Pixel 6 generation coming this fall.

And during all this, Sony seems to be in an entirely different universe. Let’s hope the Japanese company will soon issue a statement saying this was all a misunderstanding or something like that. Because if it doesn’t, you may want to think twice about shelling out €1,299 for a phone that will get the same number of major Android updates as a €200 OnePlus Nord N-series handset.
