I have a project that requires me to test it on a Sony device. Unfortunately, I don't have a physical device.

Is there a Sony emulator for Android Studio?

  • Sony once had a service where you could run your app remote on a physical Sony Xperia device. The service was called "Sony Remote Device Lab Service" but it seems to no longer exist nowadays.

Android Emulators are based off the Google Android Studio SDK Emulator and don't contain any Manufacturer proprietary code/API.

The general properties to change when creating a hardware profile are screen resolution, screen size and RAM. If needed there are additional hardware properties you can configure.

If there is a particular model you need to duplicate, creating an emulator with the same screen resolution, screen size, RAM and OS version would be a good place to start.


Android Studio only provides Google phones as a built in hardware profile. But you can create a new hardware profile and customize it accordingly. In the AVD Manager > Create new emulator, On the Hardware page Clone a device and customize it or to create a hardware profile from scratch, click create hardware profile and there you can create it from scratch.
