Sony has begun rolling out the Android 11 to the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 ahead of schedule

Having posted a timeline on which handsets were eligible to be upgraded to Android 11, Sony has decided to begin the rollout to the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 ahead of schedule. The new firmware is said to include the December security patch and be available in a number of regions including Russia and South East Asia.

The Android 11 update was originally scheduled to roll out during February but I’m sure Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 users aren’t too unhappy about the early release. It seems that the new Photography Pro app isn’t included in the update, and the camera app is the same UI as it was before.

The update brings the software on both devices up to 55.2.A.0.630 and comes in at around the 911MB mark, so if you are on a data-capped plan, make sure you are connected to WiFi before downloading the OTA and installing.

If the update is showing on your Xperia 1 or Xperia 5, let us know in the comments below if you find any bugs or glitches.
