The update brings all of the new features that are part and parcel of Android 8.0 Oreo. Users can manually check for the updates by going to Settings About Phone System Update. Android Oreo has other features like including Background limits, installation of apps via APK, over 60 new emojis, notification dots, Wide-gamut colour for apps, Snoozing individual notification, Adaptive icons, Keyboard navigation, WebView enhancements and much more.

A report by FoneArena has also claimed that the Xperia R1 duo will receive features like Xperia Actions, which is an AI-based service that can suggest actions based on interaction with games on the smartphone. Since this is a major Android platform update the file size is quite large at 1.7GB so users will certainly want to connect their device to a good Wi-Fi network before they download the update. The Xperia R1 offers 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, while the R1 Plus offers 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Both smartphones have a 13-megapixel camera at the rear with Predictive Hybrid Autofocus and an LED flash. For the front, there is an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling. Both phones are backed by a 2620mAh capacity battery, which is slightly on the smaller side when compared to their competition. On the connectivity front, both of them supports, 4G VoLTE, GPS, Bluetooth 4.2, USB Type-C, WiFi and dual-SIM support. After a rather long wait, the update has finally started rolling out.
