Android 11 is the latest version of Android available in Spain, and as the months go by we discover the update plans of each of the Android manufacturers. Sony is among the last to state its upgrade plans, but the company already seems to have an idea of ​​upgrade dates for the models it will upgrade, as well as their estimated dates for each of them.

These are the Sony phones that will update to Android 11

Sony phones that will update to Android 11 and their dates: only one mobile will update in 2020 1

  • Xperia 1 II: during December 2020.
  • Xperia 5 II: by the end of January 2021.
  • Xperia 10 II: by the end of January 2021.
  • Xperia 1: for February 2021.
  • Xperia 5: for February 2021.

Although the list of phones that will be updated is quite brief, it is not that the catalog of phones that Sony has published in recent months is much more extensive. In addition to these models, Sony presented the Xperia L4 in 2020, a mobile that remains without major updates. Last year the Xperia 10 and 10 Plus were also left out, as well as the lower-budget Xperia L3. A reminder to avoid the Xperia 10 II, which except for surprise this will be its first and last major update, as well as the L.

In the case of the higher-end, it is also bittersweet that the Xperia XZ3 and XZ2 from 2018 are left out of the update cycle. Little by little, Sony seems to be focusing more and more on its more premium range, so updating its 2011 models would have been a great added value of durability, just as Samsung has done with the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 onwards.

  • Notifications:
    • Notification bubbles: Android now incorporates a native floating notification system similar to the Facebook Messenger bubbles, but much more efficient (so much so that even Facebook abandons its system in Android 11). Applications like Telegram are already experimenting with this system and it is hoped that it will also end up on WhatsApp.
    • Controls for multimedia applications are now part of the quick settings panel.
    • Now we will have a notification history for each application.
    • Grouped notifications have a cleaner and more visual appearance.
    • Priority notifications allow us to select more important contacts and receive personalized notifications with their avatar and able to bypass do not disturb mode.
  • After holding down the power button, we will not only have access to payment cards, but we also have the possibility of having control of the home automation.
  • Privacy:
    • Specific storage becomes a mandatory feature: From now on, applications that require the use of storage permissions will not be able to register your mobile in full, but only access the files necessary for their use.
      • An exception is made for file managers, which still need full access.
    • Automatic restoration of permissions: When we have not used an app for a long time, it will lose access to the permissions it already had.
    • One-time permissions for camera or microphone: Want to give an app permission to use the camera or microphone but don’t want to give it permission forever? Now you can allow them to use these elements once.
