This update, which will arrive via OTA, has a weight of 900 megabytes so if you have the phone’s memory loaded you should leave at least 1 GB released to download the file and update the Sony Xperia XA1 to Android 8 Oreo.
Also keep in mind that this update to Android 8 Oreo for the Sony Xperia XA1, Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra, and Xperia XA1 Plus is available for models that are free. If your phone is anchored to a mobile phone operator the update will take a little longer to arrive.

And the Sony Xperia XZ Premium was The first smartphone to receive Android 8 Oreo.
