Sony Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III devices are the latest smartphones to get the Android 12 update. The update brings lots of new features such as Scrolling Screenshots, one-handed mode, nearby share and even Extra Dim to protect your eyes. It also brings another useful feature where it tells users if any app is using the microphone or camera without you knowing. It will immediately drop a notification in case there’s some app accessing the camera or mic.
Only Sony Xperia 1 III and Xperia 5 III devices having model numbers XQ-BC72 and XQ-BQ72 have started receiving the Android 12 update with a build number 61.1.A.1.149, but this update is only pushed to devices in Russia.
If you own one of these devices and haven’t received an update notification, head on to the phone’s settings and check the software update section for an update.
