Sony Xperia X is getting aptX support via an experimental Concept build


Sony is rolling out a new experimental update adding aptX support for the Xperia X model. Sony’s Concept Installer app needs to be installed to fetch this new update which also includes a couple of fixes.

The new Xperia X is getting an experimental update with build number 38.3.1.A.0.74 packing a couple of fixes. Also, the update adds March 5 Android security patch. The most interesting feature is the support for aptX codec. After installing this update, the Xperia X owners will be able to pair select Sony-branded Bluetooth headphones featuring Sony’s LDAC wireless codec audio support.

Sony’s LDAC is a proprietary codec capable of transmitting high-resolution audio wirelessly. Right now, Sony h.ear in (MDR-EX750BT) wireless earphones and Sony 1ABT (MDR-1BT) Bluetooth headphones are the only two LDAC supporting models available in India.

Sony’s Concept for Android is the rechristened program to push alpha or experimental builds for the Xperia phones. As the name itself suggests, these builds may not offer a stable performance. However, the best part is that your phone’s warranty won’t be affected if you install any of Concept builds.
