The Japanese company Sony has always taken very seriously the issue of Android updates. It is usually one of the first to inform you of your intentions regarding the release of new versions. Now that the vast majority of computers already work through Android 7 or Nougat 7.1, the company will have to prepare for the upgrade to Android 8. The new version of the Google operating system for mobile phones and tablets has not yet been presented definitely, but the truth is that its arrival is already very close.

Sony phones that can be upgraded to Android 8

Firstly, it is important to keep in mind that a new edition of IFA, the consumer electronics fair in which major manufacturers will participate, will be held in Berlin in early September. Rumors tell us that Sony will take advantage of this event to announce two new phones that would work as standard with Android 8.

Now it has not filtered its official name, but we know that they will be high-end and would be identified with the code Sony Xperia G834 and Sony Xperia G8441. There is no information on its technical file. We have also known that they will be available in four basic colors: black, blue, silver and pink. Otherwise, they are expected to have a Full HD display and work through a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, combined with 4 GB of RAM.
