Sony Xperia XZ Premium gets Oreo in December, red version launches in Japan

Sony's Xperia XZ Premium will receive the update to Android 8.0 Oreo in December. That's at least true for units sold in Japan, the company's home country, since that's where the information comes from. In other parts of the globe, the rollout may start sooner than that, or later.
