New Sony Xperia XZ Premium update fixes camera sensor issues, adds November security patch

The Xperia XZ Premium is the first Sony smartphone to have received the Android 8.0 Oreo update, but other devices are expected to follow soon. However, the update contained a fix for a known camera issue that brought another problem with the camera.

In other words, most of the pictures captured with the Xperia XZ Premium were blurry …
