Sony Xperia XZ Premium's camera distortion issue gets a fix

Sony - Android Authority

However, the changelog for the update lists that 221 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) related to Samsung Experience (previously known as TouchWiz) and the Android system have been fixed.

Japanese consumer electronics giant on Monday rolled out the much awaited Android Oreo to its flagship phone Xperia XZ Premium making it the first non-nexus (also non-Pixel) series to taste the Google's chocolate-milk cookie flavoured OS. And in addition to Oreo-specific features, Sony has also said the update comes with new features. The Android phones boast of new camera lens but some users are not happy with the results most especially when photos are captured in wide angle lens. What it does is let you scan objects and faces in 3D which you can then share or 3D print. Sony had earlier announced this will come with Oreo back in August. The latest update brings some interesting features, which are present in Xperia XZ1 smartphone. So there is Predictive Capture which automatically starts taking pictures of the subject when it detects a smile.

In any case, Sony Xperia XZ Premium (review) users in the above-mentioned regions will be able to experience Oreo and its features hands on.

It is also the personal fastest record for Sony, as it was previously notorious for failing to meet multiple updates' deadlines.

To remind you, the Oreo version of the XZ Premium will include 3D Creator app, predictive capture, autofocus burst, improved audio, app shortcuts and lots more. Further, users can benefit from autofocus burst feature that recognizes, tracks and captures sequences of moving objects in sharp focus for blur-free action shots.

The company has confirmed to release Android Oreo to Xperia X, Xperia X Performance, Xperia XZ, Xperia X Compact, Xperia XZs, Xperia XA1, Xperia XA1 Ultra, Xperia Touch and Xperia XA1 Plus.

Currently, the Galaxy Note 8 update is rolling out for the users in China and Hong Kong only.
