As per the website XperiCheck, the stable Android 10 update for the Xperia XZ2, Xperia XZ2 Premium, Xperia XZ2 Compact, and Xperia XZ3 is currently available in various regions across Europe, Asia, as well as the U.S. The update arrives as version 52.1.A.0.532 for all four phones and weighs in at 730MB in terms of size.
