LineageOS 15.1 is now officially available for the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser and the ASUS ZenFone 2 Selfie. It's also available for the Sony Xperia XA2.

LineageOS 15.1 is the latest version of LineageOS, based on Android 8.1 Oreo. It's the most popular AOSP-based custom ROM that contains many added features. Official builds of the ROM roll-out every week for supported devices. Version 15.1 of the ROM was announced back in February, and the first builds began to roll out for select supported devices in the same month.

Since then, LineageOS has continued to quietly add more and more devices to the list of supported devices. The community-driven open-source project has also released new features such as LineageOS Trust, while releasing a Device Support Requirements charter to maintain a high standard in official LineageOS builds. Recently, LineageOS added official support to A/B devices starting with the Motorola Moto Z2 Force.

Official support for LineageOS 15.1 means that owners of the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser/Selfie and the Sony Xperia XA2 can flash an Android 8.1 Oreo custom ROM. In the case of the ZenFone 2 Laser and ZenFone 2 Selfie, this is the only way users can experience Android Oreo as their official software support has long since been finished. It's worth noting that the phones were released with Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The Sony Xperia XA2, on the other hand, is in a different situation. It was released earlier this year, and it runs Android 8.0 Oreo. Users can flash official LineageOS 15.1 to use a newer Android version with the latest security patches. It's great to see official LineageOS support for newer devices such as the Xperia XA2.
