Google recently released the stable version of Android 13 for its Pixel phones. And it marks the start of the Android 13 update for devices from other OEMs. And as for Sony, the OEM hasn’t started beta testing or public updates, but we don’t have to wait any longer. If you have a Sony Xperia phone, you can check the eligibility for the update here. Here is a list of Sony phones eligible for the Android 13 update.
Android 12 brought a new design language, and Android 13 makes it even better. In Android 13, third-party app icons now also support dynamic theming, which adapts wallpaper color according to assigned color scheme. Android 13 comes with many other features like per-app language, improved clipboard, etc.
But all these new Android 13 features only make sense if your phone is eligible for the Android 13 update. And as you know, Android updates for non-Google phones are always a problem, including the Sony Xperia. So far, Sony hasn’t made anything official about when and which Xperia phones will get the update to Android 13. But from the update history and policy, we can make some hypotheses.
Sony releases a limited number of new models each year. And it helps us easily identify which Xperia phones are getting the big new Android update. This is also a plus for Sony as they don’t have to worry about developing new updates for too many models.
When it comes to Android update history for Xperia phones, Sony has rolled out at least two major Android updates to their flagship and high-end mid-range phones. And we expect Sony to continue or even better. Some brands also offer three major Android updates.
So with all that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of Android 13 supported Sony Xperia phones for you to check out below.
Note: The list mentioned below is not the official list. This is an expected list based on update policy and Android update history for Xperia phones.
Sony Xperia phones that should get the Android 13 update:
- Sony Xperia 1IV
- Sony Xperia 10 IV
- Sony Xperia Pro-I
- Sony Xperia 1III
- Sony Xperia 5III
- Sony Xperia 10III
- and upcoming models
This is the expected list and high chances of getting Android 13 update in next few days. There are two other Sony phones that could get Android 13, but the odds are slimmer. I am talking about Xperia 10 III Lite and Xperia 1 II. As this is an expected list of Xperia phones, there may be some differences from Sony’s official list. But we don’t know when an official list will be available.
Xperia 1 IV, Xperia 10 IV and Xperia Pro-I are almost confirmed to get the new update as they are the latest phones from Sony. And Sony confirmed last year that the Xperia 1 III will receive at least two major updates, with Android 13 being the second update for the phone.
As the Xperia 10 II, which is a mid-range phone, received two major updates, the Xperia 5 III and Xperia 10 III are also expected to receive the same number of major updates.
These Sony Xperia phones are therefore expected to receive the Android 13 upgrade. The rollout timeline is unconfirmed, it could be later this year or next year depending on the device model.
