Sony Xperia R1 and Xperia R1

Sony Xperia R1 and Xperia R1”

One of the mid-range series from Sony is the Sony Xperia R series which saw the launch of Xperia R1 and R1 Plus from Sony previous year. The update process has begun from last week, however, some users have reported bugs and app crashes after installing the latest version of Android on their devices. The update will also bring a relatively new Android security patch to the two mid-range handsets.

The Android 8.0 Oreo update brings all the stock Android Oreo features on the Xperia R1 and R1 Plus but with a little bit of touch from Sony. The over-the-air (OTA) update with build number S001011_180224 is rolling out to both the phones, in-line Sony's promise of releasing the update back at the launch date.

The new update brings a host of new features like Picture-in-Picture mode that enables a user to perform two tasks at the same time.

Apart from that, FoneArena cites user reports to claim the Xperia R1 and Xperia R1 Plus will also get features such as Xperia actions - an intelligent service that suggests actions based on interaction with games on the phone, contextual menus for app shortcuts, reminders for unfinished emails and messages, and more. The update roll out is confirmed by Sony India itself on Twitter, however, several users are posting about the update roll out the status on the Sonymobile forums page. Currently, the update is being rolled out in India, Taiwan, and Italy.

Both smartphones look the same and have similar specifications, except from differences in RAM and inbuilt storage.

The Xperia R1 duo has Sony' signature design language, and there's a 5.2-inch HD display on the front. While the Xperia R1 features 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage, the Xperia R1 Plus comes equipped with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. Under the hood, both of them are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. Both phones are backed by a 2620mAh capacity battery, which is slightly on the smaller side when compared to their competition.
