Sony Xperia XZ Premium's camera distortion issue gets a fix

Sony - Android Authority

Red Xperia XZ Premium will come with Android 8.0 in select markets

Japanese consumer electronics giant on Monday rolled out the much awaited Android Oreo to its flagship phone Xperia XZ Premium making it the first non-nexus (also non-Pixel) series to taste the Google's chocolate-milk cookie flavoured OS. Users can enable this option to get rid of distortions.

With the latest update, users will get different features like 3D Creator, predictive capture (smile), autofocus burst, improved sound quality and app shortcuts. Whilst this distortion is consistent with similar wide-angle lens cameras in the industry, we have listened to your feedback and developed a new optional setting in the camera menu called "Correction for image distortion" to minimize the distortion effect. It then lets you select the best among them.

Four of Sony's recent high-end smartphones - the Xperia XZ1, XZ1 Compact, XZ Premium, and Xperia XZs - feature rear cameras with lenses that are a bit wider than on most smartphones. As Sony promised, the 3D Creator arrives with the update. We have been taking time to make improvements and increase photo shooting options.

Today, Sony Mobile has announced the availability of the Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact for RM2099. While this means you can capture more of your surroundings in just one shot, it also means photos can exhibit some visible perspective distortion.

XZ Premium users will also be getting Predictive Capture with this update. For further updates stay tuned to us.

Samsung has started rolling out a new software update for the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S6 edge.

While the recently released new Google phones already have the Android Oreo built in, it takes time for various third party smartphone manufacturers to get this latest update. The update should be of a large size so users need to have at least 50 percent battery life and that they should carry out the download using Wi-Fi. The Xperia XZs will follow once Android Oreo is also ready.
