In early May Google announced its Android P Dev Preview 2 , the second version of tests of its future operating system that was one of the main novelties of Google i / O 2018. A few days later we received with surprise the fact that the Beta of Android P would be available also for other devices different from Google Pixel, and today we inform you that it is now available Android P Beta 2 for the Sony Xperia XZ2 .
Sony has not been a company that was characterized by hurry when it comes to updating their devices, so it strikes us that only five days after the launch of the Android P Beta ( Android P Dev Preview 3 ), it can now be installed on the Sony Xperia XZ2; something that is undoubtedly due in large part to Project Treble.
Android P Beta 2 for the Sony Xperia XZ 2: these are the changes
The new update comes under the code name of PDP-PKQ1.180513.001-10128 and is compatible with the versions H8216 , H8266 Y H8296, so the versions modified by the operators will not be compatible. We must also bear in mind that the support for dual SIM of the H8266 and H8296 versions is not available on Android P Beta.
It is not that we are facing an update that adds new features, since Android P Beta 2 has been dedicated to polish some bugs and errors of the first version:
- The problem of lack of difference between the volume maximum and minimum during calls.
- Problems are corrected by which the microphone it stopped working.
- The wireless charging of the Xperia XZ2.
- The microSD cards with exFAT format are already recognized.
- The night light is already working correctly when using the settings from sunset to sunrise.
- Fixed random GPS problems in some units.
- The 4G no longer causes the modem to malfunction.
- You can now do Tethering / Wifi Hotspot without the system becoming unstable.
Therefore, although we do not receive new functions or features, the operation of the device will now be much more stable and complete.
Anyway, and as we always tell you when installing software that is always in development, it is advisable to install Android P Beta 2 for the Sony Xperia XZ2 in a device that is not your main smartphone , for the inconveniences that may arise and for the fact that with the update all saved data is lost .
In order to install the Android P Beta 2 for the Sony Xperia XZ2 we will only have to go to the system settings and look for the update or wait for the system to notify us of its availability, but beware, this only works for those users who had already installed the first beta of Android P Beta for the Sony Xperia XZ2, because otherwise we will have to install it at hand with the program Xperia Companion of Sony (we leave you capture with mini tutorial).
