Android 7.0 Nougat

Google started rolling out Android 7.0 update for Nexus devices starting from this week. HTC was the first company to confirm Android Nougat update for some of its devices. Now Sony Mobile has confirmed Android 7.0 (Nougat) update for a range of smartphones. It doesn’t mention the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3 range, so it is not clear if these devices will get the update. Sony says that it has been working hard to bring the major update to as many of the devices as possible, so we can expect more devices to be added in the future.

List of Xperia devices that are confirmed to get Android 7.0 (Nougat) update:

  • Xperia Z3+
  • Xperia Z4 Tablet
  • Xperia Z5
  • Xperia Z5 Compact
  • Xperia Z5 Premium
  • Xperia X
  • Xperia XA
  • Xperia XA Ultra
  • Xperia X Performance

Sony Mobile did not reveal the exact time-frame for the roll out for these devices. Sony will reveal more details about these new features and the time frame for the roll out soon. As usual the roll out might vary across different carriers and countries.
