It looks like the Xperia 10 V is the second smartphone from Sony to get stable Android 14 update. Just last week Sony announced the Android 14 update for Xperia 1 V and it is still rolling out. Sony Xperia 10 V users also will soon be able to enjoy the new Android 14.
Unlike the Xperia 1 V update, Sony has not announced the update for Xperia 10 V yet, instead we found it on the firmware. But Sony might soon announce the update. As the firmware is now available, it is possible that the update might already be live in some regions. However we didn’t get confirmation yet.
The Android 14 is the new Android version released in October. Talking about stock Android 14 features, the update comes with many new features like Monochrome themes, flash notification, more customization options, Android phone as webcam, new battery settings page, even bigger fonts, improved privacy and security, and many other features.
However these are stock features and so some features might only be exclusive to Pixel phones. Since Sony uses custom UI just like other OEMs, so expect additional features apart from stock features. For example, Xperia 1 V received new improved bokeh mode, and Video creator app along with Android 14 update.
As per the finding the Android 14 update for Xperia 10 V (XQ-DC54) comes with build number 68.1.A.2.93. And its for the Europe and the UK region. Since it is a major update, it will weigh more in GBs.
Sony Officially Confirmed the Rollout
Sony has officially confirmed the Android 14 rollout for Xperia 10 V by sharing a post on X (formerly Twitter). The company confirms three features, including new lock screen shortcuts customization, Nearby Share, and Find My App compatibility.
If you own Sony Xperia 10 V, the update can arrive anytime. But you first need to make sure its running the latest Android 13 build. The update will be available over the air. So make sure to check for update regularly. You can check for the update in System Settings under Settings. Once the update is available, create a backup and charge your phone to at least 50% before updating the device.
