20 TV Sony cominciano a ricevere Android Oreo con un changelog bello corposo

Matteo Bottin Non potrebbero fare altrimenti

Benché sugli smartphone Android Pie sia ormai relativamente diffuso, sulla variante TV di Android si è fermi ancora ad Android Oreo. Questo perché, benché Google lo abbia annunciato al Google I/O, non è stato rilasciato per alcun modello. Non deve quindi stupire che l’aggiornamento in arrivo per 20 smart TV Sony sia basato su Android Oreo.

A rivelarcelo è una pagina di supporto di Sony, che parla per ora solamente di Stati Uniti, Canada e America Latina (firmware v6.5830). I modello interessati, ben 20, includono TV prodotte dal 2016 al 2018.

L’aggiornamento dovrebbe arrivare via OTA “nei prossimi mesi” (si spera anche in Europa), ma nella pagina di supporto potete trovare anche il link per il download diretto del firmware (da installare a vostro rischio e pericolo). Il corposo aggiornamento, invece, può essere letto qui sotto.
