When it comes to naming their devices, these Android OEMs can hardly take a break. The fluctuations can hardly be predicted. The latest example of this situation is the Sony Xperia 5. Announced at the IFA 2019, the former is the variant of Sony Xperia 1. Xperia 5 is been portrayed as a trim down variant of the yearly flagship from Sony. Even here we have no clue about the naming logic.
Coming to the Xperia 1, this device from Sony has a battery power of 3,300 mAh and display screen of 6.5 inches. This device recently received the August Security update at the first half of the month.
Whereas the Xperia 5 has a battery power of 3,140 mAh and display screen being 6.1 inches.
The Sony Xperia 1 has now got a software update as per the Sony Update servers. This update has now started rolling out with a build number very less different from the previous.
The update comes in a size of 310 MB. It also includes the September Security Patch. The internals have undergone major changes and fixes by the Sony engineers.
According to the initial users of Xperia that have undergone this update, there have been a number of performance improvements especially in the case of Fingerprint sensor. The stock camera app has also been noticed to work faster.
The changelog here describes the update –
- Improved Stability of connecting Bluetooth headset signal (especially in AAC connection mode)
- Improve background control capability, optimize power saving of native system
- Improve preview speed of camera interface and camera stability
- Improve zoom framing and image quality
Well this does not necessarily mean that the update has enhanced the device completely. There certainly are some drawbacks in the features.
