Update (11/27) 9:51: We knew Sony would begin rolling out Oreo to the Xperia X Performance sometime soon, but we didn’t think it’d be this soon.
According to Xperia Blog, Android 8.0 Oreo is now rolling out to the Xperia X Performance. Just be sure you’re on a steady Wi-Fi connection before downloading the update. It weighs a pretty hefty 1.2 GB.

Original post (11/27) 2:20: Sony has been very focused on bringing Android 8.0 Oreo to its smartphone lineup. Now we can add two more devices to the list of phones running Oreo.
This weekend, Sony Xperia XZ and Xperia XZs owners reported that the Oreo update has started to roll out. The new build number for both updates is 41.3.A.0.401. Unsurprisingly, this is a pretty big update at 1.2 GB, so be sure you’re on a steady Wi-Fi network before downloading the update.

These updates also bring the November 2017 Android security patch. And as reported by Xperia Blog, the same update should be released soon for the Xperia X Performance.
Sony previously launched an Oreo update for the Xperia XZ Premium in late October, and it has already promised that several more of its Xperia phones will get Oreo over-the-air updates in the near future. Its two latest smartphones, the Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact, were the first to be launched with Android 8.0 out of the box.
