Android 14 is reaching more and more phones. After Google, Xiaomi and Samsung, another manufacturer is now starting to distribute the update for older models.
Just a few years ago, it took months for a new Android version to reach a large number of smartphones. This seems to be happening faster with Android 14. After Google, Samsung and Xiaomi, another well-known manufacturer is now starting to distribute the update for its smartphones: Sony.
As GSMArena reports, the top model Sony Xperia 1 V is currently receiving the update. It not only includes the new features of Android 14, but also brings the improved bokeh mode of the sister model Xperia 5 V and a video editing app to the phone.
Sony distributes update for Xperia 1 V
The manufacturer is remaining silent on whether and when other Sony smartphones will receive the update. However, at least the Xperia 5 V is considered a hot update candidate.
The rapid rollout of Android 14 confirms a positive trend when it comes to Android updates. The distribution of these updates is progressing faster and faster. Android 13 has become the most widely used Android version within around a year and currently holds a market share of 22.4 percent, reports Android Police. In comparison: Android 12 has not yet been able to assert itself against its direct predecessors Android 11 and 10.
