The Sony Xperia R1 and R1 Plus smartphones were launched back in October 2017 at Rs 12,990 and Rs 14,900 respectively. Now, the brand has announced the roll out of Android Oreo for both the smartphones.
Sony needs to address these issues with a new software update, however, the company is yet to accept these issues.
The update brings all of the new features that are part and parcel of Android 8.0 Oreo. As such, they would be the first V30 users in the region to be able to download the latest Android version and discover the new features in it including the improved notifications, picture-in-picture multitasking, and more.
