As for now, the OTA is rolling in Malaysia, hopefully, it will soon be available in other regions as well. In case you’ve not received the OTA notification on your Sony Xperia 10 II, then I recommend you to check the updates manually in the system settings.

To manually check for updates simply go to Settings on your Xperia 10 II. And then go to System > Software Update. It will show the available update that you can download and install on your phone.

Hopefully soon the firmware will also be available on the company’s server. It means even if you don’t receive the OTA update on your phones, then you can manually update your device. First, download the Android 11 firmware from the Xperifirm tool for your Xperia device. Then you can manually flash on your phone.
