Sony is one of the few Android OEM’s that has offered the Android P developer beta on its smartphones. After releasing the Android P beta 1 on Sony Xperia XZ2 devices, the company has now released the Developer beta 2 also. This is just after a week of Android P Developer Beta 2 being available.
If you already have the previous Beta version flashed on your Xperia XZ2 smartphone you will get the update via an OTA (over-the-air) update. If you want to use the developer beta for the first time, visit Google’s developer beta website and follow the instructions to flash the developer beta.
The new updated software version is called PDP-PKQ1.180513.001-10128 and comes with a lot of changes since the last developer beta.
- Small difference in max vs min volume during call
- Microphone stops working
- Wireless Charging on XZ2 not fully recognized
- SD-cards formatted with exFAT are not recognized
- Nightlight is not triggered correctly when using sunset to sunrise setting
- GPS not working on some units
- 4G+ can cause the modem to crash
- Tethering/Wifi Hotspot makes the system unstable
So if you have a Sony Xperia XZ2 smartphone and want to get the Android P experience first, install the beta version. We won’t recommend you to install the developer version on your primary smartphone. Stay tuned to Sid Tech for latest tech news, deals, reviews and more.
