Sony has finally started rolling out its first Android 12 updates

It didn’t used to be this way, mind you, as Sony, for instance, seemed fully committed to beating all of its mobile industry rivals to the punch when it came to this type of stuff just a few years back. Now the Snapdragon 888-powered Xperia 1 III and 5 III are reportedly being upgraded from the Android 11 build they integrated right out the box last year to OS version 12 almost two whole months after Samsung’s Galaxy S21 family was first able to do the same.

While Samsung has done an amazing job of spreading Android 12 love over the globe for over a dozen new and old devices with high-end and mid-range specs, we can’t say the same for many other firms. In fact, we can’t say the same about any other brand, and it feels like OnePlus, Nokia, Asus, and Sony aren’t even attempting to compete with the world’s heavyweight champion of software upgrades any longer.

Of course, things didn’t exactly run smoothly straight off the bat for the S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra, let alone the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 5G, so if Sony can deliver a reasonably bug-free update (or two) for its latest ultra-high-end smartphones, we’re pretty sure its hardcore fans will excuse the company’s late arrival to the stable Android 12 party.

After all, it looks like other top brands will keep their customers waiting even longer. On the not so bright side of things, it’s definitely important to highlight that the Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III rollouts are apparently only underway in Russia at the time of this writing, and there’s obviously no telling when the two updates will expand to other countries.

The same goes for the Android 12’s hopefully impending expansion to the likes of the state-of-the-art Xperia Pro-I, mid-range Xperia 10 III, or 2020’s Xperia 1 II, 5 II, and first-gen Xperia Pro.
