Sony has also started rolling out a stable Android update for the Xperia Pro-i, a flagship smartphone aimed at professional photographers and creators. It was launched in October last year and came with Android 11 out-of-the-box. Currently, the Android 12 update is being rolled out only for the Japanese model (XQ-BE42). However, we expect the global variants to follow suit soon. The update is identified by build number 61.1.F.2.2 and includes, among other things, the March 2022 security patch.
