Google recently released the stable Android 13 for its Pixel phones. And it marks the beginning of the Android 13 update for devices from other OEMs. And when it comes to Sony, the OEM hasn’t started beta testing or public updates, but we won’t need to wait much longer. If you have a Sony Xperia phone, here you can check update eligibility. Here is a list of Sony phones eligible for Android 13 update.
Android 12 brought a new design language and the Android 13 makes it even better. In Android 13, third party app icons now also support dynamic theming which adapts the color of wallpaper as per the assigned color palette. Android 13 comes with many other features such as per app language, improved clipboard, and more.
But all those new features of Android 13 make no sense unless your phone is eligible for the Android 13 update. And as you know there is always a concern about Android updates for non-Google phones, this includes Sony Xperia. So far, Sony hasn’t made anything official as to when and which Xperia phones will get Android 13 update. But from the history and update policy, we can make assumptions.
Sony releases a limited number of new models every year. And it helps us easily identify which Xperia phones will get the new major Android update. It’s an advantage for Sony as well, as they don’t have to worry about developing new updates for too many models.
Coming to the Android update history for Xperia phones, Sony has rolled out at least two major Android updates for its flagship and premium mid-range phones. And we expect Sony to continue it or even better. There are some brands that also provide three major Android updates.
So keeping everything in mind we have compiled a list of Android 13 Supported Sony Xperia Phones which you can check out below.
Note: The list mentioned below is not the official list. It is an expected list based on the update policy and Android update history for Xperia phones.
Sony Xperia Phones that are expected to get Android 13 Update:
- Sony Xperia 1 IV
- Sony Xperia 10 IV
- Sony Xperia Pro-I
- Sony Xperia 1 III
- Sony Xperia 5 III
- Sony Xperia 10 III
- and upcoming models
This is the expected list and high chances of getting Android 13 update in the coming days. There are two other Sony phones that might get Android 13 but chances are less. I am talking about Xperia 10 III Lite and Xperia 1 II. Since this is an expected list of Xperia phones, there might be some differences from the official list from Sony. But we don’t know when an official list will be available.
Xperia 1 IV, Xperia 10 IV, and Xperia Pro-I are almost confirmed to get the new update because these are the latest phones from Sony. And Sony confirmed last year that Xperia 1 III will get at least two major update, and Android 13 is the second update for the phone.
As Xperia 10 II which is mid-range phone has received two major updates, Xperia 5 III, and Xperia 10 III are also expected to receive the same number of major updates.
So these Sony Xperia phones are expected to receive the Android 13 upgrade. The roll-out timing is not confirmed, it may come later this year or next year depending on the device model.
