This includes the model numbers H8216, H8266, and H8296). The company has released this update soon after Google had released the second public beta update for Android P (Developer Preview 3). The Sony Xperia XZ2 is among the few of non-Google devices that have the access to Android P beta builds which are currently available for only the original Pixel and Pixel 2 lineup.
The changelog released by Sony mentions a number of bug fixes including the bug which hampered the performance of microphone in which it stopped functioning while making and receiving calls. The latest update also fixes another bug that blocked the users to adjust the volume of the call.
