Japanese technology giant Sony has announced its software update policy on its smartphones.

According to this, the flagship Gemini cannot get updated according to the hardware of medium and entry-level phones while receiving a software update for two years.One of the issues that Android smartphone users are most worried about is software updates. Most manufacturers promise to update their devices, but they will not tell you how long it will be updated or when it will be updated. As a result, some devices get late updates, while others do not.


Thinking that the software needs to be a little more transparent to its users, Sony has announced its policy to implement software updates. Accordingly, all Sony flagship ships will continue to receive software updates for two years after launching into the market. Moderate and entry-level smartphones will also get updates, but when the hardware is weak, Sony may not release updates to some medium and entry-level models in order to lose the device’s stability.

Although the software for the medium and entry-level models seems to have changed quite a bit, consumers who are a bit closer to technology can easily understand that they will review the device hardware and get updates. Still, Google is still the clearest company on software updates. If you buy any Google device, the company guarantees you will receive software updates for 3 years. Accordingly, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL announced this fall will continue to receive updates until October 2020.

Sony has announced that it will accept the Android security patch dated 05.01.2018 from Sony smartphones, which are listed below. Updating devices will be protected from threats from Meltdown and Specter vulnerabilities. In addition, Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact and Xperia Z5 Premium devices will not receive such security updates.
